Bears Den Studio Visit

On October 29, 2014, me Aaron Escobar (Atto Pilot) and Josh Padilla (Plan B-Eye) we went to Bears Den Studio in Attleboro to visit Jay, in order to learn more about audio engineering Jay is a audio engineer, he is artist who is in his mid to late twenties. He has been working in his own studio in Attleboro for four years, recording different local artists, mostly rock bands. He has been to Fuil Sail for audio engineering and after completion landed a year long internship. The internship was in Mass, where Killswitch Engage has recorded. After that he went back home and started to record people from his parents basement. After doing that for a while he moved his bussiness into a nice commercial space in Attleboro, Mass. And over time he transformed it into a fully fuctional recording studio.
He uses Pro tools Ten and has his studio is fully equiped with a recording booth, mixing station and a live sound room. It is great for mixing down live instruments and loves what he does and pays closely to detail to make sure the artists session comes out near perfect. He spends from five to fifteen hours per session and is recently working on a thirty-two tracks mix down. He has worked with our own Janay Pina (Arts Education Vista) in recording and comments “she has a dope voice”. Jay is one of those artists that takes time in developing his craft and never stops buying new “toys”, is what he calls his audio engineering equipment.
He has taught us parallel compression which is, having two busses and two compressions with two different settings. One setting is the base setting and the other is a more gritty setting. He also taught us clip gain, a new tool in Pro Tools Ten that allows you to adjust an individual sound. He did a really good job answering our questions and explaining his techniques for mixing down. His technique is eq, compression, delay then reverb. He uses Renniasance for most of his mixes. He welcomed us to come back and listen onto his sessions.
