We're here for a better tomorrow

Musicians, singer songwriters, producers gathered in StarMount Studio for one cause. A better tomorrow. We're recording songs to express our love to the country and future generations. Have it saving our heritage (Jalan Sultan), saving the environment ( against rare-earth processing plants in Kuantan) or saving ourselves ( for a more transparent society). After all, Its great and rare to have so many artistes into the studio at the same time. Most importantly, everyone was having a great time and good memories are left in the studio...

Shining Star
Masters at work

Great folks! 

Heritage must be preserved
For green peace!
Time to change

Playing it right

Taking it seriously

Together we stand
Doing our part for a better tomorrow
Even its late at night...
Every note counts

No voices were left behind!

We just want harmony

More Strings and Movie OST@ StarMount Studio

We've been doing quite a lot of strings lately, here's one meant for an upcoming movie OST, composed, arranged and also produced by Qahhar. He brought in strings players and also the bubbly and powerful (voice) Heela Monica to StarMount Studio. Ok, we can only disclose this much information for now :)

Q Sound@ StarMount Studio

Great tunes and great times we had when Marques Young and the band recorded new materials for his upcoming album. We had John Thomas on drums, Zailan Razak bass, John Dip Silas playing the keys, Patrick Tebrack on Sax and Marques for the vocals and trombone.
Its always fun and challenging as we tracked all live. Utilizing all the space and rooms available, including the control room. The sound sources were well isolated and we love how the 22" hi hat sounding from the speakers.
That's the hi hat

Can tell its a good session

Tracking off in control room

We were surprised  with Audient Black Series, where we put the Kick (e902) and Snare (SM57) through it. It has a nice saturation and punch when we crank up the thx on the pres, Glo on the EQ and both Overcomp and Smooth on the way out. It was amazing that the Audient Blacks could offer such variety of tone color, from rather transparent and open, to some really warm and punchy sounds.

Season of Audition

Its audition season in StarMount Studio. We have many promising young talents coming in to do their piano solo audition tapes, either for further education or competitions. What we can say is they are truely amazing.
We love the sE4400a pair going through the ever musical Neve Portico 5012 (silk) and Lavry Blue conversion. No compression and effects were applied to preserve the authenticity of the recorded materials.

We've been getting thank you messages about the successful  intakes or they've gone past the audition with the recorded materials :)

You can tell its in good hands once you've heard it
