Years of education in Audio Production
Our head engineer, Damien Launay has a Bachelors of Science in Audio Production from MTSU (top 5 ranked school for Recording Industry Program). Before attending MTSU, he took an Audio Production class at The Webb School (one of a handful of highschools in the nation that offers such a course). In addition to formal education, Damien has been educated in the field while working with many studios including Kilowatts Studio, The Record Shop, The Walnut House, and Sound Stage Studios.
We have recorded over 500 songs in the past year alone and all projects are held to our high standards making sure that you get quality production each and every time! We put together your individual songs with the entire project in mind in order to maintain a consistency that leads to a well crafted album!
An eye for detail
Sometimes the little things matter most. You want an engineer who’s completely invested in your song, who has an eye (or ear) for detail! At Continental Studios we believe a good mix has to be nuanced. Its not enough to have a good sound, you must also pay close attention to what may not stand out at first, but will end up making a difference. We care about the music we put out and pay attention to the little things!
We believe quality starts with good equipment! At Continental Studios we have a pair of Generation 3 KRK Rokit Speakers, hooked up through balanced (quarter inch to XLR) audio cables to a Focusrite Interface. A Neumann TLM 103 Microphone complete with the Neumann shockmount, a lifetime warranty, and run to the interface with a high quality low noise balanced XLR cable. We have a pair of Sennheiser HD 650 headphones for recording and a quad core i7 processor putting out 4.5 Ghz for easily handling even the biggest projects!
Some studios focus on certain genres and neglect others but here at Continental Studios we have worked with many different genres including Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Reggae, Country, Soul, Bluegrass, R&B, Gospel, EDM, Alternative, House, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Funk, Blues, Folk, and Jazz. We are constantly branching out and adding new genres to the list!
