Onyx Soundlab - The Premier Connecticut Recording Studio










What are your recording prices?

All recording packages are custom made to fit your budget.  For major label releases, many hours are often spent recording and mixing a song to perfection.  We do not charge per hour, because we feel artists perform better when they are not watching the clock.  Therefore, it is best that you call our office so we can give you a custom quote that fits your specific project. 

How much is the studio experience program?

The prices depend on which program you sign up for and how long the duration of the program lasts.  The program prices are listed at the bottom of the program application, which can be viewed here:

What are your hours?

Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-7pm, by appointment only.

What is mixing?

Audio mixing is the process by which a multitude of recorded sounds are combined into one or more channels, most commonly two-channel stereo. In the process, the source signals' level, frequency content, dynamics and panoramic position are commonly being manipulated and effects such as reverb might be added. This practical, aesthetic or otherwise creative treatment is done in order to produce an elevated mix that is more appealing to listeners.
Audio mixing is done in studios as part of an album or single making. The mixing stage often follows the multitrack recording stage and the final mixes are normally submitted to a mastering engineer. The process is generally carried out by a mix engineer, also called mixing engineer, or mixer, though sometimes it is the musical producer, or even the artist who mixes the recorded material.

What is mastering?

Mastering, a form of audio post-production, is the process of preparing and transferring recorded audio from a source containing the final mix to a data storage device (the master); the source from which all copies will be produced (via methods such as pressing, duplication or replication).

The source material is processed using equalization, compression, limiting, noise reduction and other processes. Subsequently, it is rendered to a medium such as CD or DVD. This mastered source material is also put in the proper order at this stage. This is commonly called the assembly or track sequencing. More tasks such as editing, pre-gapping, leveling, fading in and out, noise reduction and other signal restoration and enhancement processes can be applied as part of the mastering stage.

Will you send my material to major record companies?

We have many opportunities to submit music for placement on major label projects.  If your music is deemed exceptional by our producers, and with your agreement, it may be shopped to major label executives, A&Rs and producers. 

Are you looking to sign recording artists to record deals?

We are a recording studio and production company and are not in the business of releasing produced material to the public.  We can consult, produce, and assist you with getting your product ready so that it can be shopped to an appropriate record label.
