Tracking

Evergreen Sound offers a comfortable, laid back environment for bands and artists to creatively record their music. With a collection of high end gear and microphones found in much larger studios, Evergreen Sound provides a top quality sound without any compromise.

Editing

In order for a recording to compete with the popular music in most genres, an edit job is usually needed on the recorded tracks. Editing is the tightening up of timing inconsistencies within the playing and singing, the tuning of vocals and other instruments, and the general crossfading of tracks to create a seamless sound from combined takes. A great mix and master cannot happen until the timing and pitch of the tracks feels and sounds good.

Mixing

A good mix can infuse life, excitement, and depth into a recording. As a band/artist, your music needs to hold its own next to the music on the radio and releases from labels in order to capture the same audiences. With years of experience, a professionally designed control room and a mixture of analog and digital gear; Evergreen Sound can deliver the mixes you need to take your music where you want it to go. No matter where you live or where you recorded your music, Evergreen Sound can help step up the quality level of your music.

Mastering

Mastering is the final stage of the recording process before the recording gets sent to the duplicators or uploaded online. The final eq, compression/limiting, and volume adjustments are made in an accurate room on detailed speakers to ensure the best sound for each song. The masters are then digitally tagged and burned to CD with the appropriate fades and silence in between tracks. This last step should not be taken lightly. A good mastering job can sweeten a good mix, and a poor mastering job can ruin a good mix.

Charity

It’s all too easy to get caught up in doing things only for oneself while the world at large around us is in great need. Evergreen Sound wants to partner with you the artist/band to help the helpless and those in need around the world. When you record at Evergreen Sound, 5% of the cost of the recording will be donated to International Justice Mission. This does not mean a 5% increase in cost to you, rather it enables Evergreen Sound the opportunity to give. Now about IJM…

 

From their website:

“International Justice Mission Canada is a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression, in partnership with U.S.-based International Justice Mission (IJM).  IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to ensure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems – police, courts and laws – effectively protect the poor from violence.” IJM exists “To protect the poor from violence, bringing the criminals to justice, restoring survivors to safety and strength, and helping local law enforcement build a safe future that lasts.”
