Toys! Toys! Wonderful toys! For our “Sound Freaks” & “Tech Geeks” the Skinny Rocker has assembled an impressive array of professional equipment designed to create a truly airworthy sound.
Now…for some of us, we can get completely lost after the microphone! So, for those who revel in the exacting detail of audio settings and gear – ENJOY! And for the rest, we’ve included a little primer on what all of this nifty equipment actually DOES…in the hands of a true professional!
So, let’s start with that microphone. And it’s not just any mic, it’s the same high performance Heil PR40 Dynamic Microphone – slick Black and Gold Edition! – he knew and loved from all of his years working in a professional radio studio.
Some people pin things they like or want to a Pinterest Board. Others compile a series of Amazon Wish Lists. For the Skinny Rocker, it was ALLLL about that “Audio Wish List!” Working for decades with a major station cluster, he knew EXACTLY what he wanted…starting with the outstanding Wheatstone M1 Digital Mic Processor. And unlike many of us, the Skinny Rocker refused to compromise on his wish list. His only goal was to be able to produce professional, studio-quality audio tracks.
To guarantee this ability, the knobs are frozen on his Processor. Instead, he uses its Vorsis Ultra-High Resolution Software, with tried-and-true studio settings (finely-honed over years in a major cluster studio) to ENSURE your message will always sound loud and clear.
So, we now have to get all of this digital audio wizardry fed into the computer for professional production. Using this High Def PreSonus Studio 24C USB Interface the signal is routed directly into the computer editing software…without any loss of fidelity or file compression
As the industry standard, he uses the Cool Edit Pro 2.0. And a wide array of his clients can attest to his black belt status and ninja skills in Multi-Track Editing for even the most complex of projects.
Now…here’s where the magic REALLY happens. Yes, to the untrained eye, it’s a soothing, plant-filled (the Skinny Rocker has quite the green thumb) office; BUT, audio pros know this is where the work begins! Carefully bringing all of these technical elements together into a polished, creative message requires the proper surroundings…and he has created the perfect environment for, well, CREATING audio magic!
Of course, EVERY studio needs one more component. And the Skinny Rocker Productions studio is no exception – a voice booth! Whereas many talented individuals have come “out” of the closet, the Skinny Rocker enjoys going INTO his perfect acoustically treated voice booth – a converted closet!
Regardless of whether you live to geek-out over every single tech aspect of audio production, or just appreciate a finely-voiced, custom message – brimming with creative verve, style and state-of-the-art technical craftsmanship – the Skinny Rocker Productions “specs” are designed to please everyone.
And best of all, he uses every tool in his “workshop” to ensure your project will ALWAYS stand out from the crowd!
