We offer studio musicians who are available to work with you during your recording sessions. Everyone who has recorded with us appreciates the "incredible acoustics" and "comfortable atmosphere" at our studio. We have the highest quality hardware and software of any recording studio in our price range, in Tidewater and the Virginia Beach area including: Pro Tools version 12.5, Logic Pro X v.10.2, Reason version 8.3, and Ableton Live Suite 9.5 (our 4 primary DAWs), with thousands of plug-ins by Waves, Sonnox, Izotope, Focusrite, FXpansion, Native Instruments, Universal Audio (powered plug-ins), and many more, on a Mac Pro with 2 hexa-core Xeon processors, 16 GB RAM, Avid HDX card, and several 1 TB HDDs.
Our recording studio is well-stocked with high quality instruments, Preamps (Avalon, Universal Audio, Focusrite, API, Great River, Neve, and more), Microphones (Blue, AKG, Mohave, Sterling, Shure, Sennheiser, with new purchases scheduled for this fall), amps, compressors, and effects, as well as keyboards, guitar, bass, and a Roland TD-9 Drum Kit.
At Waves of Sound, we have the gear and the personnel to help you develop your music to its greatest potential!
At Waves of Sound, we understand how important it is to protect your music. No one but the engineer will be allowed to listen to your music, without your permission. Music is a labor of love, but it takes a lot of work to put together a quality product. It would be very distressing to hear your song on the radio, with someone else's voice. We will not allow that to happen.
After your music is recorded and mixed, it is very important to get a copyright for each song. I strongly recommend joining a Performance Rights Organization, such as ASCAP or BMI. Not only will they ensure that you receive your percentage of the royalties for each song that you have written, you will also receive newsletters with helpful information for songwriters. If you don't know how to copyright music, I can point you in the right direction.
Your music will be secure and protected while it is in our possession. After you pick up your finished copy, all of your music will be removed from our secure onsite servers (unless you request that we keep a backup, archived copy).
If you use a credit card to pay for services, your card information will be entered into a secure portal for the payment amount only. We don't keep credit card records, nor will your card number ever be written down. If you need to make another payment, we will need to enter your number again, because there will be no record of it. You will receive a record of payment only. Any financial transactions with Waves of Sound Recording Studio is completely confidential and secure.That’s a promise!
