    Happy Boy is my well-equipped home studio. I can accommodate small ensembles in any genre. I am a musician and producer who can help arrange your music. My clients enjoy the relaxed environment, great sounds, flexibility and affordability they receive. My instruments include a Rhodes electric piano, a Hammond A100 organ with Leslie 122 speaker, a Yamaha upright piano, an Ampeg SVT classic bass rig, several Fender tube amps, a DW drum set and more.

  • Lori Moran

    I have my own studio at home and can record and upload my work. I am currently finishing my fourth book for and will be starting on my fifth right after. All of my work meets with the ACX recording standards. If you would like, I can provide you with a promo code and you can download any of those books for free, or I can send the files and share via Dropbox. I also record audio books for ALLY. This is an organization that provides textbooks for sight-impaired people. Mainly, I read textbooks in the biological sciences as I am able to pronounce the words (I am also an RN) that the average layperson and volunteer cannot. I feel it is important to give back to the community. I am currently in the process of getting a website up and running, but I am not quite there yet. At the present time, I can be reached upon request. I take my work very seriously and always provide my authors with professional and timely work. Thank you very much for considering me for this job! Sincerely, Lori Moran

  • Def Dragon Studio

    Def Dragon studio is a private project studio offering the following services: * Mixing (adjusting levels, EQing, preparing for pre-mastering, etc.) * Composing soundtracks (film scoring). No jingles or advertisements. * Composing for other (non-advertisement) projects I am not able to offer recording services. Final pre-mastering is not offered at this time, but when mixing, I aim to make the mastering engineer's job as easy as possible. I will gladly coordinate with the mastering engineer of your choice. If you intend to take your project to a mastering engineer before distribution, please keep in mind that I'm not going to be "making it loud" - that's for the mastering engineer to do, and he will want as much headroom as possible to work with. If you decide not to use a mastering engineer, we can adjust the final mix compression and gain. Just keep in mind that if you're looking for radio play, broadcast stations make heavy use of compression, so we'll want to make sure it doesn't sound squashed when it hits the air. Materials must be submitted as stem exports. Each stem must start at the beginning of your project and stop at the end of that track after the signal has faded to zero (in other words, be sure not to cut off any tails). Otherwise, I have no way of knowing how you intended each track to fit into the mix. Acceptable stem export formats are wave (.wav) and FLAC (.flac) files, at a minimum depth of 24 bits and session rate of 44.1 kHz (24 bits/96 kHz preferred if you can). MP3 files used for mixing will not give you good results no matter what bitrate they're at or who your engineer is. Stems should NOT include any processing or plugins. The best results will be obtained if you provide me with the raw recordings. Here is a complete list of items you should, if at all possible, submit for a mixing project: Stem exports Your own description of the project and how you envision it sounding as a final product What genre your project is in (or you may note that genre is not important) What instruments were used (including brand name and model) in the recording of this project What microphones (brand name and model) were used in the recording of this project What microphones recorded which instruments Typed lyrics Sex of the vocalist (while this is often apparent, sometimes it is not and this is helpful information when EQing) What microphone (brand name and model) was used to record the vocalist or vocalists Note where and whether any specific instruments are particularly important to the song What kind of acoustic environment the recording took place in ("my bedroom", "at my church", "professional recording studio", etc.) If you wrote the song, telling me a little about what inspired you to write it might be helpful You can provide only stems if you wish, but the more information you provide, the better I'm able to help you. Stems should be zipped into a single file. You can use either zip (.zip) or tarred/bzipped (.tar.bz2) files. My goal is always to get it right. The project isn't done until you agree it's done. All projects will take no less than two weeks (minimum 30 days for film scores). I realize we all have deadlines, but from experience I know that the ability to work hard on a project for two days and come back to it two days later is extremely helpful for any engineer. I want you to have it done as well as possible. I also want to leave in plenty of time for us to communicate about a project before we declare it "done". For mixing, I use Ardour, a large collection of open-source plugins, plugins from Harrison Mixbus, and LinuxDSP plugins. My studio monitors are KRK VXT's. I also use Ultrasone and Focal headphones. My computer DAW (digital audio workstation) runs on an AMD Phenon II X6 with 16 GB of RAM and uses 7200 RPM hard drives. The whole system, from hardware to the configuration of the operating system and software, was designed by me and the software configuration bundle is sometimes used by others (gentoostudio.org). A mixing project may include any of the following: Adjusting the levels of each track relative to other tracks so the mix is well balanced between instruments EQing individual tracks to help them fit in well with the mix EQing the overall mix to help glue it together Compressing individual tracks to help them fit in well with the mix Compressing individual tracks for punch and other effects Applying reverb to individual tracks for a sense of space and feeling Applying reverb to the overall mix to help glue it together and give the mix the impression of being performed in a single, definite place Using delay to enhance the tone, feel or stereo spacing of tracks Placing tracks within a stereo field to widen the mix and give tracks their own space Replacing tracks to help improve the mix Layering tracks to help improve the tone or feel of the track in the mix Applying any number and types of other effect to help the mix achieve its purpose For film scoring or to help me layer or replace tracks in mixing projects, I have an electronic music studio that includes the following instruments: Two Mackie Onyx mixers Access Virus B Akai AX-80 Alesis Ion KORG Triton Extreme Novation Supernova II Roland V-Synth Waldorf Blofeld Various software synthesizers Patch bays and MIDI interfaces I can either mix the film score I compose for you, or you can use another mixing and/or mastering engineer. To get started, get in touch and tell me a little about your project. Once we have discussed the project details, I will provide you with a gmail account you can send stems to, or you can use a file hosting service of your choice from which I can download your stems. I have no fixed rate or fee, but I prefer to work with per-project fees. It's easier for both of us that way. The fee will be discussed and agreed upon before the project actually begins and is payable upon completion of the project. Paypal is the accepted payment method. Completed projects can be provided in any (or all) of the following ways: Stereo mixdown wave file, 24-bit/96 kHz (used for premastering and as a master copy) Stereo mixdown wave file, 16-bit/44.1 kHz (used for reproduction and distribution) Stereo mixdown FLAC file, 24-bit/96 kHz (used for premastering and as a master copy) Stereo mixdown FLAC file, 16-bit/944.1 kHz (used for reproduction and distribution) Stem exports in either wave or FLAC format (used for premastering) Stereo mixdown in lossy format (MP3, Ogg, etc.) (used for distribution) Once completed, you may request copies of the final project from me at any time, in any of the above formats, without any additional expense. I graduated from American University with a B.S. in Audio Technology in 1999. Thus far I have worked on composing and mixing my own work, and I hope I can put my experience to use for your benefit. If you would like to hear some examples of my own work (which includes composition and mixing).

Ardent Audio Productions

(8 reviews)

For over 28 years, Ardent's team of professionals do more than recording. They can work with you on the artistic processes of creating music, as well as recording it. They regularly upgrade their recording equipment and software to meet the highest standards available. They have a state-of-the-art and professional recording studio. Their studio was developed and designed with both artist and producer in mind. Their goal is to provide a relaxed, comfortable, and creative atmosphere--a place where you can feel at home to create.

What do you love about your job?

I've been a producer-engineer-musician for over 30 years. I produce music on a daily basis for recording bands and singer-songwriters. I also do a lot of voice-over recordings, including the voice for a car navigation company. I have also created a tour of the USS Arizona memorial from one of its last living sailors. I've been in business here in Torrance for 27 years.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

As I grew up playing in bands, I always found myself being the band director and producer when recording in the studio. That led me to start my own studio 27 years ago. I pride myself in creating a creative atmosphere for my clients.

He came to our house for the recording session and was absolutely prepared, did not waste any time setting up and everything went very smoothly. We appreciated that he is not just a recording technician but also a musician who brings lots of understanding to the project. We can highly recommend him!
