Tenderdyn Arts was designed to record a variety of instruments and genre in an acoustically engineered room. Not only are performers placed in the sweet spot for their particular sound, but the use of a variety of room and instrument mics placed for the specific desired sound, gives all elements of a recording a great start. A Yamaha C-7 Enspire Pro Disklavier strategically placed in the room allows pianists to play, record, and playback unique music through the well though-out placement of specifically chosen mics.
Mixing high quality music is the creative act of combining multiple layers of audio into one final track. Mixing not only depends upon combining the various elements of a song through the use of sophisticated equipment in order to balance levels, equalize, compress, harmonize, enhance and add desired levels of reverb, but mixing also depends upon the ability of the mixer to creatively add all separate tracks into a cohesive, amazing song. The staff at Tenderdyn Arts prides themselves on understanding the emotion, mood, and message of the artist and actualizing them into a distinct and unique sound through the highest quality mixing of every key element of the song.
Tenderdyn Arts has embraced immersive audio as the future of music. We offer state of the art Genelec monitoring along with the finest software and hardware supporting binaural, ambisonic, surround sound and Dolby Atmos. In addition to a fantastic recording environment, we have added several different ways to audition your music in both traditional stereo and immersive formats.
As an Apple Digital Mastering house, Tenderdyn Arts makes creative choices in the mastering of final music mixes so that the music is best suited for optimized playback across all streaming platforms, media formats and systems.Â The art of balancing all elements of the music into a cohesive sound is a creative process that Tenderdyn Arts understands prepares music for high quality distribution.
We are also a record label, and offer distribution through AvidPlay, DistroKid, and CDBaby. If you have your own distribution set up, we can work with them to deliver content in any of the current required formats.
Tenderdyn Arts has a vast variety of music libraries, access to musicians, and other sound sources which support the conceptualization of previously composed work. A prime example of arranging at Tenderdyn Arts is reworking a piano solo into a richer musical composition.
