Magdalena Acoustik provides on location recording services for classical, chamber, choral, organ, vocal, instrumental, jazz, ethnic and other acoustic music. Using world class equipment and refined techniques, the company captures the natural timbres of the music within the acoustic environment.
Their equipment includes microphones from Schoeps, Neumann and AKG, with preamps from Millennia Media and Metric Halo. Because acoustics are such an significant part of the sound, a great room is essential. The company records on location, where the acoustics are, either at the client’s venue or at other great halls which the company may suggest.
Magdalena Acoustik follows a “less is more” approach, by using as few top-quality microphones as possible, and avoiding heavy electronic processing, preferring instead to capture the natural tones of fine instruments in a rich environment, and preserve the balance choices and artistic interpretation of the musicians. The company offers:
