Kog are New Zealand's most experienced and well-endowed
Mastering facility, having over 15 years experience and credits on multiple top releases, whether gold and platinum selling or indie or whatever...here are some of the services we offer.
These days, especially with the number of digital mixdowns being done, it is more important than ever to make sure the mix goes to tape and top level analog gear to polish and breathe that extra important life into it.
One thing that we do have over most studios is an in-house engineer and vocal producer Huia Hamon. She is super experienced and can work with you on your session to get the best takes possible! Huia is also experienced in Melodyne and editing, as well as vocal guidance and voice technique. We do Voice Overs, Sound Post, Bands...you name we've probably done it. We have hourly and daily rates for this, also a host of production music available if you need a music bed.
What is mixing? For those venturing into the recording process, mixing is like 'placing' the sounds you have recorded into the right 'space' for the song to take on the right 'feel'...sound abstract? It is, but such an enjoyable and beautiful part of the process, you'll hear things you didn't expect from the recording. With Kog's fancy gear,
it comes to life and gets ready for the mastering process.
We have written a lot of music in our time...whether for ads on TV or radio, back tracks, stonking drum and bass or acoustic ditties, we are both writers and have access to some of the BEST in the business. We also do FASHION music and compilations for people such as Andrea Moore and corporate speeches.
Here at Kog we have extensive experience in audio restoration. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff we've saved for people over the years!!
Whether it's -Your bands old tapes or DAT tapes from the 1980's, a family recording off cassette or reel to reel from ancient history
or...if you are needing to get all CSI Miami on it for your law firm we've helped out on it all.
We utilise the latest fancy audio restoration software plus can also tag in our top of the line mastering gear to up the quality to the best possible, whatever your need.
