Sonic Vision offers the following audio production services


MasteringMixing Board and Headphones is the art & science of transforming "final mixes" into "Final Masters" suitable for commercial distribution. Without it, your music will not achieve its full potential and will struggle to compete in today's competitive environment. It is an absolute requirement if you want to present the most professional production possible.

We use both analog and digital processing to create your final masters. Analog processing is handled primarily by two powerful and unique hardware units. The first one is the Fatso Jr. by Empirical Labs. This box creates the "musical non-linearities" exhibited by tube, class A discrete, and magnetic tape mediums. The net result is it enhances and softens the sound of today's digital productions and musically integrates frequencies and transients while increasing the apparent volume without actual increase in peak levels. The other analog unit we use almost all the time is the Manley Vari-Mu Limiter/Compressor. This unit has become a defacto standard among reputable mastering facilities worldwide. It's famous for adding that certain "glue" to mixes that just simply makes music sound better.

All conversion and clocking is through an Apogee Rosetta 800. While digital processing varies from song to song it generally includes any combination of the following plug-ins from various manufactures: EQ's, multi-band compressors, harmonic alignment, bass enhancement, spatial manipulation, limiting, dithering and whatever else might be necessary.

Monitoring is handled through a combination of the following: near to mid-field - Dynaudio BM15A's; near-fields - Yamaha NS-10M's and Event TR5's; Sub - Yamaha; Headphones - AKG.
