We offer different types of digital recording options. Vocal recordings of all types, plug and play instrument recording, live instrumentation recording, and drum session recordings. With our workhorse go to vocal microphone the Neumann TLM 103 Anniversary Edition accompanied by our other high-end microphones, getting you a crystal clear vocal is one of our specialties. Our Sure drum mic kits are equally impressive.
Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimize playback across all systems and media formats. This process is traditionally done using tools like equalization, compression, limiting and stereo enhancement. Remote options are available for this service.
If you are looking to get a solid mix on your song but don't have a lot of money to spend? This service is just for you. We will spend two hours with your song running it through an editing and mixing process that will clean it up and make it pop at the same time. Remote options are available for this service.
This process allows us to give your track a collaborative professional radio-ready mix with exactly what you want your track to sound like. Beat manipulation, sound bites, unique intros, sound effects, and much more. In this service, we will bring your song into our system for editing, cleaning up vocals and tune, bringing sonic clarity and crispness to get it ready to be mastered. Remote options are available for this service.
The production service allows CMS to partner with you and your song at the highest level. You bring in a song in its basic form or an idea and we build the arrangement around it to make it a full-scale production. Your song will then be given our complete mix with mastering and provided in the format of choice. Remote options are available for this service.

Backup: Digital usage and storage have become major issues for studios and clients. Due to the unreliable nature of this digital world, we cannot guarantee the safe use or storage of digital audio files. We strive to do our best with audio file manipulation and storage, but there are many things out of our control. For example, there are often “bugs” in operating systems and attendant software; hardware components that suddenly become defective in hard drive power supplies; glitches in the operations of complex computer functions, etc., that can cause losses in data. Although such losses are infrequent, Changed Man Studios™ accepts no liability for the usage or storage of any data or audio files. It is necessary for every client to provide backup for digital audio file storage. Changed Man Studios™ is not responsible for educating or instructing the client on care and storage of digital data and media, or any data, media or client files lost or corrupted while stored on studio hard drives. Please note, as well, that files will be stored for no more than 30 days following completion of the session.
