Size McStudio

Size McStudio Size McStudio is a hybrid analog/digital recording and mixing studio located In Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Analog, Hybrid, or Digital? You Choose! I got into this business as a performing and touring musician. Everything I have learned about production was always from a musician’s perspective. 15 years later, as an engineer and producer, I still attack every situation from the perspective of what the Artist would want and how they would feel most comfortable to get the best performance. This is why we do what we do: to capture lightning in a bottle, and that comes from all other mental interference giving way to the creative force of the song. This studio is a product of my desire to create a place for both engineers and musicians alike to tap into the source and make music at seismic proportions. Services Available: Full band tracking Pre-production (highly recommended if you aren't as familiar with studio recording production) mixing / Editing (see gear list below) Cassette / Dat restoration / digitization SIZE MCSTUDIO CLIENTS: Pharoahe Monch (Tracking various songs and mixed recent Valentine's day mixtape) Matisyahu (Tracking / Mixing) Particle (Mixing) Soul Rebels (Mixing / Editing) Mela Machinko (Tracking / Mixing) Talib Kweli (Tracking -3 albums 2 mix tapes / String Arrangement) CBS Follies (tracking / Mixing) Kyp Malone (tracking -Rain Machine) Nomads (Tracking Vocals and Synths) The Fylls (Producing Upcoming Record) Kev Rio & The Dashing Gents (Producing Upcoming Album) Ponyboy &The Shiners (Prodcued upcoming album) The Ugly Club (tracking) Zak Smith (Tracking, Mixing, Production) No Mooring (Tracking) Eric Krasno (Tracking) Break Science (Tracking) SIZE MCSTUDIO GEARLIST: Analog Mixing: Sony / MCI JH618 Console modded with 8 John Hardy Mic Pres Neve 5432 Recording and Mixing Console 10×2 API 8200a 8×2 Summing Mixer / Master Section API 3124MB+ 4×2 Mixer Analog Recording: Studer A810 1/4″ Tape Machine Monitoring: Dangerous Audio Monitor ST Monitor Controller and Remote Adam P22a midfield / nearfield Monitors Adam Sub10 Mk2 Subwoofer Yamaha NS-10 nearfield Monitors with Yamaha P2200 Definitive Powerfield Supercube III Subwoofer Genelec 1029a/1091 nearfield monitors & Subwoofer Roland DS90a Monitors Hear Technologies Hearback Hub Headphone Hub with 4 Mixers Coleman VU meters (6) Dorrough A340 A/D Conversion, Interface, and DAWs: 3.46 Ghz 12 Core Mac Pro w/ 32 GB Ram, USB 3.0 Antelope Orion 32 Channel AD/DA I/O Converters Burl B2 ADC 2 Channel Converter Apogee Rosetta AD/DA Universal Audio UAD-2 Octo PCie DSP Processor Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad FW Satellite Pro-Tools 11 and 12 on OSX 10.10.2 Pro-Tools 10 on OSX 10.8.5 Logic Pro 10 Ableton 9 Outboard Gear: Dynamics: Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Inward Connections Vac Rac TSL-4 Anniversary Edition Alan Smart C2 Stereo Compressor Daking FET III Stereo Compressor Empirical Labs Distressor Retro Instruments Doublewide Mono Tube Compressor Crane Song Falcon Mono Tube Opto Compressor (2) Warm 76 (1176 Style) Mono Compressors (2) Purple Action (1176 Style) Mono Compressor (2) DBX 160x (2) CAD Champ Stereo Compressor Equalizers: Mercury EQP1 Program Equalizer (3) Neve 83017 Stereo Line EQ (Racked, from 51 Series Console) Focusrite ISA 215 (Rupert Neve Designed, Vintage) Neve 34128 Channel Strips - from 5432 console (8) MCI Channel Strips 18 Channels API 560 (2) A-Designs EM-PEQ (2) Daking 500 Series EQ (2) Channel Strips, Preamplifiers, and DIs: Focusrite ISA 215 (Rupert Neve Designed, Vintage) API 3124MB+ 4×2 Mixer Neve 34128 Channel Strips - from 5432 console (8) John Hardy Mic Pres (8, Modded into Sony / MCI Strips) Sony MCI Mic Pres (8) Joe Meek – VC6Q British Channel / DI AMS Neve 1073 Preamplifier / DI (2) Phoenix Nice DI B.S.S.

Well thats a wrap. 19 songs 20 plus hours. When bouncing onenneeds to occupy time. I chose to harmonize with aaron neville. I am the one slightly sharp it seems. See for all you vocalists who work with me. I am not immune from my own critisisms.

Matisyahu | Dreampatron

About 2 years ago, Matisyahu and I did a few sessions together. Eric Krasno had introduced us and I helped him demo his recent Record Akeda. After he recorded the album there was a song leftover and he asked me to mix it. It's a completely different sound that you would expect from Matisyahu and he let me put my creaitve input into it. I had just gone off on my own and officially launched Size McMusic Productions and Size McStudioo, After 8 years of hard work learning the craft I really felt like I knew how to mix a record.

The song was released a few days ago, and it is being done through an awesome new platform called Dreampatron. Dreampatron is a platform to put artists more directly in touch with their fan base. This is a great venture started up by SiriusXM Radio On-Air Host Jonathan Schwartz and I cannot be happier to know that Matisyahu is helping launch this website by offering my mix as one of his gifts to his supporting fans.

The track is called "Push to Open." it features C-Rayz Walz as well as Mark Guiliana, Aaron Dugan, Stu Brooks, Rob Marscher . It was recorded at Studio G Brooklyn by the super talented Joel Hamilton. Matisyahu, took a chance on me and I hope you dig the track. Please support Matisyahu and Dreampatron on their launch. And Musicians, consider Dreampatron as a platform to control your own business model.
