4D Audio Services

Recording Sessions

Recording sessions provide the chance to create professional sounding recordings. We provide engineering, our studio space. and all of our high-quality sound equipment. The engineer will rearrange the studio, power and test equipment, and prepare a basic setup before you arrive.

Sessions usually begin with some session setup, headphone mixing, and mic checks. Once the setup sounds great we can record takes. Towards the end of the session, and time-permitting, we will create a digital file(s) for you to take home and listen to.

Mixing Services

A proper mix will emphasize the impact and energy of a recording by expanding its sonic width, height, and depth. This results in more exciting, defined, and commercially competitive audio.

Mastering Services

Mastering is the final audio processing stage. A proper master can provide a polish, improving a recording’s stereo field and frequency representation. Importantly, this is also a great opportunity to ensure playback sounds commercially appropriate. When mastering a collection of mixes, inconsistencies between mixes will also be managed.

Editing & Tuning

Editing and tuning services result in a clearer, and more defined performances. We can shape noise levels, create fades, combine takes together, manipulate pitch, and shift sounds in time.

Rehearsals

We sometimes offer the studio as a rehearsal space. No recording equipment nor engineering is included, but backline can be provided.

The Reviews


The Reviews


Finding Steven through Thumbtack was perhaps the best thing that’s happened to me as a musician. In working with Steven on my debut EP, I not only found a great musical collaborator, but a trusted adviser and partner in the music industry.

I worked with Steven to record and produce my debut 6-song EP. Not only are his rates beyond competitive given his skill and equipment, but Steven believed in the project, took a personal interest, and leveraged his industry connections to bring in some world class talent to contribute to the record, making it of a quality beyond my expectations. Through Steven I can say that I’ve worked not only with the talents at 4D Audio, but with top notch session musicians fresh off international tours, and a 12-Time Grammy winning mix engineer.
I can’t recommend working with Steven any higher — you can find plenty of people who will bring you in, press record, and send you on your way...Steven will help bring your music to the next level. I look forward to continuing my musical partnership with Steven for years to come.

Steven was able to rectify some huge issues that I had with a previous producer, and returned my files to their more organic and natural state. The project turned out much more cohesive and professional-sounding than I could have hoped, and I’m so grateful for all the hard work he put into it!

Working with Steven on my newest EP was a fantastic decision. It’s one thing to work with a producer who knows how to properly put together a good sounding record, but this guy also quickly grasped what I was going for and helped me get the best out of my performances (guitar/bass/keys/vocals) to help me sound the way I wanted. Great set up, very professional, affordable rates, and easy to work with artistically, both from the vocal booth and in production. Most importantly, he always took my notes when there was something specific I wanted in production, but he also never lacked an explanation for any part of his process.
I would absolutely recommend 4D Audio to anyone looking to get their music recorded and produced.

Steven is one of the most professional people in the music industry I have ever worked with. Don’t let his rates fool you. He is a top notch engineer and producer that will get you even better results than the other studios who charge far more.

From the very get go I knew that I was in good hands with my project. Steven can work with any budget and make sure that you are happy with your songs. He will get the best performances out of you so that you can showcase your true talent to the world.

I could not have done my EP without his help. I am so glad that I met him and worked with him on this. I can tell you right now he will be my first phone call the next time I ever want to record something in the future.

This is NO B.S. Steven is the real deal and he will deliver for you. His studio and equipment are great and he has everything you could possibly need. Don’t hesitate to go with him. You know you are getting a brilliant producer who will understand where you are coming from and get you to where you want to be.
