Joi Noir Debut Album@StarMount Studio
Joi Noir came at the right time to be the first rock band recorded with our new Pyramix system. We were all excited to see how much of a difference, given the huge amount of headroom would benefit in the genre of rock music.
The whole tracking process had been a fruitful journey for both the band and the studio. Both were pushing to get the best performance from the session. Often scaling on the edge and sometimes over the edge to be a little bit more interesting and experimental, the sessions had been all about challenging the dynamic range of the converters, getting the most organic sound from the drums, electric guitars and bass.
We kept the signal flow as short as possible, from the mics to the mic pres of Audient Zen mixing console, into Horus premium converters. Microphone placements and pairings were the variables we used.
And now the band has almost done mixing the album and is about to get the tracks mastered. This is a true international project as the band traveled around the globe to pick their flavors. Tracking was done in Big A Productions and StarMount Studio (Malaysia), Mixed by Gareth Jones (UK) and will be mastered by Marc Antonio Spaventi in Amsterdam.
The band has started a campaign at Indiegogo to fund for this debut album. We are definitely looking forward to the completion of Joi Noir's debut album!
