Audio editing


Alchemy also features Digital Editing and Track enhancement and audio sweetening, When you need to make sure its perfect we also have track and vocal tuning available.

From microscopic waveform analysis for repairing or reconstructing waves to cleaning, denoising and declicking, sound replacement, pitch shifts, time shifts and alignments, layering, stereo imaging etc.>If you can imagine it, Alchemy Studio can make it a reality.

Digital mixing takes place within Nuendo or Pro Tools, so everything can be instantly recalled from session to session. There is enough computer processing power that I can run over 100 channels with dynamics, 10Fx returns and automation for just about every parameter! I recently recorded a project that used 120 tracks.

Of course your project may not be that complex and I consider each song and mix on an individual basis to suit your needs! You can also radically change song arrangements. Stops or pauses, dropouts, automated fx or filter sweeps and track sweetening all can be done at the mixing stage. Once your song is mixed you can send it to a mastering house or have it mastered at Alchemy. (see Mastering page)
