2023

Juillet

Bruno continued pre-mixing the tracks throughout the month. New partners have joined us to support our project.

The last adjustments for the acoustics of the studio are made, the studio monitors can finally be calibrated, so, the studio is finally ready for mixing.

April

The mixing console has arrived and is already purring. For this one and after careful consideration, Bruno chose an SSL Big Six console.

March

In order to prepare the recordings of the instruments (bass, electric guitar, vintage keyboards, etc.) and complementary voices (duets and choirs), Bruno has installed the cables (XLR) to which the various microphones will be connected under the ceiling. This will allow to walk freely around the studio without damaging them; and during recordings to only have to connect the microphones to the defined locations for the best sound takes.

February

On this beginning of February, an Orange Rocker 15 amp has just entered the studio, it will complement Bruno's Mesa Boogie Express.
Bruno is concentrating on the arrangements of a first track, bass guitar and drums.
At the end of February, the new monitors arrived and were installed, Bruno finally made the choice of Adam Audio A7V monitors.
As with our good old pair of Behringer monitors, our partner Cuir & Sellerie (Leather & Saddlery) made us a pair of pads, as well as custom protective covers (logo Bruno Arts®) for Orange and Mark Bass amps which are sold without.

January

After a break for the end of year celebrations, the course of the project resumes with in particular the continuation of the improvement of the comfort and the acoustics of the studio and the purchase of a new pair of monitors in addition to the existing ones, a mixing console, a guitar amp, cables, and so on…

December

Margot and Bruno re-listen to all the voice tracks in order to clean them of small parasitic noises, sibilances and other pops.

November

Margot and Bruno re-listen to all the acoustic guitar tracks in order to clean them up. At the same time, Bruno prepares the studio for mixing: analysis and treatment of acoustics, manufacture of custom-made sound absorbing panels, bass traps, and so on…
As part of our partnership, Cuir & Sellerie (Leather & Saddlery) made us superb pads in ultra-high density foam dressed in black leatherette and personalised them with an embroidery of Bruno Arts®' logo.
