Recording Studio Services
Before starting the recording process, let’s discuss the direction to go in; Will it be big & gritty, fat and dry, or open & true to life? Let’s work together to push your performances and shape your sound at the source. A music producer’s job is to translate your music’s energy to the recorded medium.
The art of recording music is about capturing performances where each instrument sits together in an organic way putting the listener into the performance space. Each choice from mic type & positioning, to tonal & dynamic choices, saturation, & more adds up to shape the sound of your recordings
Mixing is where the magic happens; Bringing your recordings dimension, depth, character, and vibe. Let’s dial in the perfect tones for drums, bass, guitar, & vocals; Crafting a sonic aesthetic that transports the listener to another time & place.
Crafting A Sonic Aesthetic
Every band has a distinct sound. I love working with musicians to draw that out and highlight what makes them unique. Starting by getting to know you and your music informs every decision down the line: from music production workflow, to the sound of the recording room we choose, microphone techniques, EQ, compression, distortion, and much more….each small choice made when tracking adds up to a major impact on the final sonic aesthetic.
It all starts at the source; the performer & their instruments; Working together we can shape your tones to not only sound amazing, but work together in the context of the other instruments. Let’s tune up the drums, tweak your amp & pedal settings, and get the sound at the source; Then capture your performance at it’s best.

What Difference Does A Recording Studio Make?
Recording studios by definition are performance spaces, but they go well beyond that. What recording studio you choose fundamentally changes the sound of the recordings. The unique characteristics of each recording room imparts its distinctive sound into the recordings, and even shapes the performances of the musicians themselves.
This especially holds true for drum recordings, but can apply to any instrument (especially when using room mics). Room acoustics can vary a lot, from lively & reverberant to dry & dead, bright to dark, and large to small. Ultimately it comes down to choosing the right room to get the desired sound for your album.
In addition to traditional purpose built recording studios, I offer a completely mobile recording studio, let’s choose the right recording space that not only provides the right sonic space for your record, but is also an inspiring place to perform in. From purpose built recording studios, to churches, theaters, log cabins, or concert clubs …the possibilities are endless!
Music Producer – Henri Rapp
Hi, I’m Henri Rapp and I am a music producer and recording studio engineer. I’ve been recording and producing music for more than 14 years. As a Music Producer I believe every great record starts at the source, the artist, and their creative vision; It’s my job to help translate that vision into the recorded medium.
Recordings are in essence captured performances and what characterizes a great recording is authenticity and emotional impact. Listening should transport you to a different time and place, drawing the listener in and establishing a lasting connection with them.
Let’s work together to craft the recordings of your dreams. Every production requires a unique & memorable sonic aesthetic that supports your music and the lyrical narrative. Great sounding recordings don’t happen by accident, they are thoughtfully engineered to deliver your performance at its best. Let me worry about the technical so you can focus on performing.
