Ics are part of the magic in the GeniusLab Studio

What Counts? The Gear is Just One Part of the Magic

Good microphones are important. But the one thing about good equipment is they bring out the true you. Sometimes that can be a big surprise. I remember the first time I sang through a high-quality mic. My voice sounded terrible. On one hand, I was shocked and a bit pissed off. then I realized the better the equipment the more accurate the recording so I took some voice lessons and the mic became my friend. So the gear is just one part of the magic.

Outboard Gear

As I was getting ready to open the GeniusLab Studio I looked at other studios in the area. I was intimidated by their racks of outboard gear. It looked so impressive. Then in a conversation with my engineer, CJ Lambert, he started laughing and said open up your Universal Audio files you have all that gear at your fingertips and didn’t have to spend a million dollars. I then realized

Good Instruments Make A Big Difference

One place to put your money is in good instruments. They stay in tune, they sound good naturally so require less post-production manipulation. In the GeniusLab Studio, we like to make music the old fashion way. Talent, skill, and real instruments. We try to use a minimal amount of digital modification. Sometimes you have to tweak the sound but there is nothing better than good solid organic resinence. That’s why we have good gear for you to use.
