record at Apocalypse Cow?
We pride ourselves on a fun and laid-back environment. I guess you could
say "we take our fun very seriously". We collect every possible
noise-producing toy, machinery and instrument we can get our grubby
hooves on. Why? Because sometimes the song you're working on needs a
drill or a Fisher-Price xylophone, or maybe a rusty dust pan my grandpa
Apocalypse Cow is a different
kind of studio for a different kind
of artist. We record, mix, master, sell barcodes and specialize in digital
editing wizardry, MIDI sequencing and creating full arrangements for
you that take your songs to the next level.
Some genres we enjoy recording are sample-based/experimental, guitar
rock, solo artists, indie/college, space rock, country, power pop, post
rock, and especially artists that are DIFFERENT!
We also do voice-overs, storytelling, scoring, jingles, and corporate
work. We have flexible hours that can fit your needs, and within a mile
of us are a Holiday Inn, a skate park, as well as many restaurants and
fast food joints. Amenities include a full kitchen, large-screen television
with DVD player and VCR with hundreds of movies to watch, thousands
of CDs to listen to, an array of magazines and all the coffee or tea
you can handle.
We can assist you in copyrighting your material, creating a press kit,
and recommending lawyers and duplication manufacturers.
Simply put, Quality!
Because for digital recording, editing, mixing and mastering, there's
really no other place like us. The Cow is the obvious choice.
Because, by recording entirely
DDD and utilizing a combination of MIDI, loop-based, and live tracking
techniques (along with our own decades of personal experience), we at
The Cow are able to present you with a quality and clarity that'll knock
your socks off.
Because we here at The Cow have a huge hunger for music of most (if
not all) genres. The team has recorded songs in wildly different styles,
from Power Pop, Emo, and Big Band to Nu Metal, Pop Punk, Space Rock,
Classical, and Acoustic Folk Blues.
Because besides recording
music, The Cow has recorded radio commercials and international corporate
Lastly, because we foster
a healthy love of experimentation:
If you want to do something off the beaten path, The Cow wants to take
Why does The Cow record digitally?
Because you don't have to pay exorbitant prices for twenty-minute reels
of tapes, and no time is spent rewinding and stretching the tape.
Because annoying amp hum
and off-putting gasps for breath can all be easily edited out.
Because errors such as missed
hits or dropped drumsticks can be replaced and fixed.
performances can be edited.
Because if you're on a budget,
an entire song can be recorded simply by performing only a verse and
chorus once (to a click track) and then looping it up.
Because if you decide that
the guitar sounds from the first day of recording aren't right, no problem:
We always record a direct-in channel that can later be run through other
amps and digital processors, which can double- and triple-up your takes
to make them sound "strong like bull"!
Because an almost infinite
number of virtual tracks are available to create an enormous "dozens
o' dudes" sound by doubling, tripling, etc . . .
Because software plug-ins
offer you a cornucopia of nifty special effects (e.g., delay, reverb,
phazing, backmasking, flanging, band-passing, mic, amp, and room emulating,
and auto-tuning, etc).
Because all effects can
be added, removed or edited, and don't have to be committed to until
absolute final mixdown.
Because we can easily sample CDs, DVDs, and VHSs for your songs, as
well as from an extensive collection of royalty-free loops.
