 Custom CD Production:
Although many musicians, groups and vocalists may have access to home recording equipment and therefore can record their tracks at home studios and then bring the multitrack projects or the stereo mixes to a professional mixing or mastering engineer, many very fine musicians would rather spend their time perfecting their artistry than learning technology. A custom CD might entail a group of live musicians, either from one's own band or professional studio musicians, or the artist can save a lot of expense by using some of the high-quality backing tracks that are now available at a reasonable cost. We have high-quality pitch-shifting software to put your backing track in just the right key, and we can even eliminate most of the recorded lead vocal on many (not all) commercial CDs. Whether starting from scratch or using backing tracks or MIDI files, we can help you produce a professional-sounding CD that you will be proud to have represent you.

Costs: $40.00 per hour. Services must be paid for when rendered. Payment in full is required before final delivery.


 Radio Spots and Voice-Overs:
Robert has long experience in Radio Spot production and as a voice-over talent. His musical sense and editing prowess ensure that the musical bed is cohesive and exciting. Please check out the mp3 examples below.

Costs: $40.00 per hour studio time. Additional voice-over fee is negotiated. Services must be paid for when rendered. Payment in full is required before final delivery.







 Restoration:
Perfect Wave Digital has a variety of top-tier equipment and software to handle nearly any audio restoration or noise reduction needs from vinyl records, analog tape, cassettes, minidisk and CDs. This includes clicks, pops, tape hiss, hums, crackles and extraneous noises such as audience coughs, air conditioning noise, chair or string squeaks, car horns and the like. If you have a reel-to-reel tape that needs to be digitized and restored, we have experience in handling old tapes, including those tapes that have shedding issues. Instead of baking the tapes in an oven to drive out the moisture and prevent the oxide from shedding, we use a dehumidifier, which is gentler on the tape and any splices.

Costs: $40.00 per hour. Services must be paid for when rendered. Payment in full is required before final delivery.


 Editing:
Having spent literally thousands of hours editing tape with a razor blade, the advent of Digital Audio Workstations has been nothing short of revolutionary. Sonic Studio's soundBlade is the finest editor available and allows complex and minute edits not possible on other DAW software. We have spent years editing broadcast versions of themes for the Network Music (BMG) and Killer Tracks (Universal Music) production music libraries where editing down to the sample level and complex crossfades are required. We also have done a variety of direct-to-stereo recordings of various performing groups, including orchestras and vocalists, in which the most seemingly impossible edits are commonplace. The combination of soundBlade, a musician's ear and experience makes this a speedy, undetectable and satisfying process.
