The Eagle Room, is located 15 minutes North of Asheville in beautiful Weaverville, NC. Operated by award-winning producer, recording artist, and engineer, Matt Williams; The ER offers high quality recording, mixing, and mastering capabilities in both the analog and digital realms.
Owner/Producer/Engineer - Matt Williams accolades:
-Featured Artist and Arranger” on the Grammy Award-Winning album "Infinity Plus One" (2017)
-2015 Grammy Nomination as both a “Featured Artist, Arranger, and Recording/Audio Engineer” on "The Perfect Quirk"
-Grammy Certificate for his contribution as “Recording/Audio Engineer” on the Grammy Award-Winning compilation album, "All About Bullies... Big And Small" (2012)
TRACKING & EDITING: $50 per hour *Special In-House Day Rate: $400 per day
Live tracking, overdubbing and editing with engineer included. *10am-8pm with 1-2 short breaks (20-30 minutes each). Available ONLY when booked at least 3 weeks in advance and only if the recording session is in conjunction with the tracking/editing of a larger work (like a full album) which is to remain an "in-house" production. Recommended for consecutive full-band tracking days where the basic setup does not change leading to more consistent sounds. In some cases, an assistant engineer will take an evening shift (6pm-8pm) to continue tracking on the "Special In-House Day Rate" when Matt is unavailable to stay the whole session. To see if your project qualifies for this discount, please contact Matt with your project details to receive a day rate quote.
ANALOG MIXING: $100 per mix (For projects with 5 or more songs/mixes) **Single Mix Rate: $200
Audio is mixed in analog through our Studer 928 console with outboard tube compression, and sonic "gluing" through mix buss compression. All individual signals and submixes are also equalized using the console's EQs for better fidelity and sonic separation of the instruments. Signals are panned appropriately in the stereo image, enhanced and summed into the mix with the other signals as a stereo mixdown which is recorded back into the DAW through a high-end Apogee A/D converter. Artists can accompany Matt during mixing and collaborate on the mixing approach as well as custom post-production effects.
**The $100 per mix price is designed for mixing full projects and helps us focus on getting the best mix while not watching the clock. Single mixes of just one song require the same amount of setup time as preparing to mixdown a full record, so the "Single Mix Rate" ($200) includes compensation for this very important first step of the analog mixdown process where the signal paths are routed through the console and outboard components in a custom scenario which best suits the music.
MASTERING: $50 per song (For projects with 5 or more songs/mixes) ***Single Master Rate: $100 + Vinyl Mastering ($15 additional fee per song/mix)
Track-by-track analog and digital mastering techniques are used to make your project sound like a record! During this process, your music is tailored to sound great on almost any speaker system. Your project gets the silky sonic sheen and slammin' loudness it needs to compete with the mainstream and stand-out!!!
Mastering focuses on all of the following aspects and more: - Overall dynamic level of each song and the album as a whole - Relative top end and relative low end (Balance of bass and treble frequencies) - Overall punch (Does it "hit hard"?... after mastering, it sure will!!!) - Perceived loudness / RMS Levels (Projects average levels between -12 and -8 RMS) - Overall clarity and fidelity - General sonic coloration (Vintage vibe? Modern tightness? Both? Let's get it just right!)
Each project is delivered in CD, MP3 and DVD (high-res) quality so the music can sound its best no matter where it ends up being played, even iTunes!
***Since extremely close attention to detail is paid from the start of this time-consuming process, it is a general courtesy to the mastering engineer for this effort not to exceed 3 mastering versions. Also, the fee for a single song master is $100 as this process is similar to mixing a single song where setup and additional time is required.
+ Vinyl Masters: There is a $15 fee per song/mix for the preparation and delivery of vinyl masters optimized for pressing to wax. These are created from the unlimited audio recorded after the analog mastering chain and preparing these requires an additional mastering session to ensure that the dynamics are optimal.
LIVE SHOW RECORDING RATES (NEW): $500 flat rate includes... - On location multitrack recording (up to 16 tracks) which generally include from pre-fader soundboard outputs plus room microphones through high-quality preamps. - In-studio analog mixing session with engineer!!! - Basic mastering job - MP3's and .wav file delivery MUSIC PRODUCTION w/ Matt Williams: Let's make decisions together and collaborate on your sound!!! I'll come to rehearsals to tighten things up before we track, help with arrangements, compose parts, coach guest musicians to get the right stuff, help nail-down those vocal harmonies, assist with the album song order, and help shape your sound for the best presentation to your target audience. Production rates are negotiable. Please call to discuss your project goals and ambitions! 828-399-0424 Hope to work with you soon! Past and current clients include...
