A recording project is a complex process in which a multitude of expectations, wishes, visions and dreams convert into an end product to be cherished for a longtime. The quality of this product not only depends on the artistic performance onhand but also on the mutual reinforcement of technology, expertise and (musical)leadership.
At Studio van Schuppen we believe superb music productions reproduce the experience of attending the ultimate performance over and over again to any audience at any time. To create these superb music productions, we are left with no option but maximizing the expressive “momentum” of the recorded performance and optimizing the end product’s capability to convey the intentions and emotions on hand.
With the route to the ultimate performance differing in each production, we are committed to continuously optimize our readiness to facilitate whatever is needed, at the highest pace, to get the best results. We simply do not allow ourselves, nor the technology we apply, to miss the “momentum” and destroy a dream.
Although we believe technology can help preserve, and even reinforce, the expressiveness of a production, we do not allow technology to jeopardize the "natural" characteristic of reproduced sound by degrading sound quality or introducing unwanted artifacts. That is why we have spent a lot of research and testing to assemble the right set of tools.
In the end, however, each recording project is still a quest for the ultimate.
Although a flexible infrastructure and the best tools really contribute to the overall quality, the project itself is a meeting of people dealing with the unforgiving nature of a product that is meant to affect people for many years to come. Our people make sure they are ready to deal with this quest in any sense we can think of...
That is what we have been standing for during over 4 decades of music recording!
