About Production Services
The Audio Animals production and sound design studio is linked with the mixing studio and hosts a wide range of analogue and virtual analogue synthesizers. The benefits of working is this manner is that all production and sound design projects, have access to equipment only a professional mixing studio has. Which many production studios do not have the luxury of having. All productions are summed through a 36 channel Solid State Logic console and monitored using world class ATC monitors. The production studio is also linked with a 9ft x 5ft recording booth used for recording both vocals and live instruments. Custom built and fully isolated, the booth allows us to track any instruments we require to use in the production of a track. Sound design is performed both within the production studio as well as on location. Location recording takes us up and down the country, recording in abandoned world war 2 bases, warehouses and underground bunkers. We are able to do this with the aid of our mobile recording kit, which includes a Zoom H6 and various mic attachments, each with their own unique purpose.

Remixing is referred to when a producer takes an original track that has already been produced and puts their unique spin on it. This process is often applied to popular tracks that have done well in sales charts and requires a revamp to become popular again. In many cases multiple remixes of the same track are produced in different genres. Thus opening the original track up to a wider listener base. This service is bespoke and can vary in price depending on how much work is involved in remixing the track. We will always try and fit your budget big or small.

Additional Production involves listening to a track and analysing what is missing and requires to be added. This can mean reworking drums to give a track more energy or adding various instrumental elements, in order to gain more excitement and variation. Having a professional mixing and mastering engineer analyse your song, helps with pin pointing exactly what additional production is required. The service we offer is bespoke to the client’s needs and can vary in price depending on what is required. We will always try and fit your budget big or small.

Location Recording involves us taking time out of the studio and taking our mobile recording kit to various locations around the UK. On location any number of samples can be recorded. Samples such as large impacts created hitting metal doors with a sledgehammer as well as foley sounds recorded in museums, restaurants and coffee shops. All recorded samples will be supplied as full recordings unedited and arranged in folders of stems. The service we offer is bespoke to the client’s needs and can vary in price depending on what is required. We will always try and fit your budget big or small.

Sound Design can range from creating a single sound you require for use in your own track, to the creation of a complete sample pack of exclusives sounds. A common request from producers are fx samples such as risers, fallers, zaps and other intricate fx sounds. Our sound design service has taken us across the UK recording in military forts, aircraft bases and abandoned buildings. We record a lot of weird and wonderful unique sounds for artists to use in their tracks, that they would otherwise never get their hands on. Such sounds as an RSJ beam being struck with a sledgehammer layered with the explosion of an aerosol can in a washing machine, make for a very unique interesting explosion. This is a very bespoke service and prices depend on what is required. We will always try and fit your budget big or small.

Song Writing is something we have been working with for the past 16 years. Writing a track is relatively simple in today's modern music industry. Writing a hit song is some what more difficult. We work with a team of song writers and vocalists to create all manner of songs for various different genres. Our team of writers combined have more than 100 years of experience writing songs for established artists and underground artists around the world. This is a very bespoke service and prices depend on your needs and requirements. We will always try and fit your budget big or small.

Vocal Tracking can be arranged for your track using both male and female vocalists. Whilst we do not open the doors to the general public to come in and record vocals at Audio Animals (due to the studio being fully booked) we do however have a team of talented vocalists we record with on a regular basis. What this means is that if you have written a track that requires vocals but you do not have the means to record them, nor do you know of a talented singer who will sing on your track. We can track your vocals for you and send you the raw vocal recordings to work with as you please. The recording session can be viewed via watsapp or facetime, by doing so we are able to interact with the client and obtain exactly what you require from the vocalist. This service is bespoke and varies in price depending on the vocalists rates and recording length. We will always try and fit your budget big or small. Contact us today to enquire about vocal tracking using the contact form at the foot of this page.
Session Musician's such as guitarist or pianists are often required when a producer or songwriter needs intricate, organic and creative elements for their track. Piano and drums are tracked in midi and audio for easy editing. Live instruments such as strings, wind and brass are tracked in audio. The recording session can be viewed via watsapp or facetime, by doing so we are able to interact with the client to obtain exactly what you require from the session musician.
