Most modern recordings are done such that all sounds are recorded individually on their own "tracks," where they can each be adjusted without impacting the others; this is what we call tracking or recording. Once the initial sounds are recorded, any changes that we make to the original performance is what we call editing. Any changes that we make to the sound quality of these tracks before compositing them down to a stereo or surround-sound format are what we call mixing. Such changes typically include tonal corrections, volume balances, special effects, and other enhancements.

Artistic guidance and creative contributions to a project are what is generally called production. The specifics of this mean different things to different people. At Golden Sound Studio, it means any substantial, creative / unique thing that we do to make your recording either more marketable, more interesting, or just better in the client's eyes. This often includes developing a distinct sound for an artist, directing performers to achieve better takes, and making decisions when a project slips into gray areas.
The final process through which a product intended for commercial release will go is called mastering. Mastering involves both technical and artistic elements, and essentially serves the purpose of "quality control."
Whether you're a lyricist or singer who doesn't write your own music, a rapper who doesn't make your own beats, or a songwriter who wants to expand your sound with instruments for which you don't know how to write, we can help. Our composers have written music for practically all purposes, and in virtually all genres. We work with both live session musicians and MIDI instruments to achieve your goals within your budget.

Students of dance, professional dancers and instructors, and competing gymnasts often need very specifically edited music to match the choreography of their performances. Our technology allows us to make songs faster or slower without affecting the pitch, and we can seamlessly cut and paste music into new arrangements that are a flawless match for your needs.
Over the last 100 years or so, a seemingly infinite number of recording mediums have come and gone. Ranging from phonographs and cassette reels to digital tapes and hard drives, it's easy for unfinished recordings to be left behind in the ever-changing technological trends. We can interchange any of the following formats. If you have a format that we don't handle, we probably know and can recommend someone who has it.
Most recording formats just aren't built to last. Analog tapes wear down with usage. Voice-memo recorders often sound bad from the start. Any number of issues can lead to decayed or poor sounding recordings, and a number of tools are now available to address these issues. Noise can be reduced and even removed in many cases. Sonic integrity can be restored, and even enhanced beyond the original quality. Simply put, most "old" recordings can sound relatively "new" again.
