The Adventures of Annie & Ben

A new kids web series from Hooplakidz, “The Adventures of Annie & Ben“, is an instant hit. Just 10 days after release the first 3 episodes have garnered 200,000 views!

Written by Dennys McCoy & Pamela Hickey and Produced by Anu Javeri, “THE ADVENTURES OF ANNIE AND BEN” is a funny, happy, friendly show about three really great, loyal friends. They like adventure, travel, making new friends, and music. All four subjects meld together perfectly with our trio of globe-trotters.

The Voice Over cast is absolutely amazing. Annie is read by Anu Javeri, Ben is read by John Biondolillo, and Mango and most of the other characters are read by Gerard Marzilli

Topics that are covered include tuning tips, mic types and choosing the right mics, overhead techniques, room micing techniques, minimal micing techniques, and much, much more. Our goal is to show you techniques that you can use on your very next session!

In Session w/Adam Moseley (w/video)

Producer Adam Moseley was in the studio working with the band Beck Black. Adam is an amazing producer with a long history of working with some of the biggest artists in the music business dating back to the hay day at Trident Studios in London.

During this session we chronicled Adam while he talks about his recording philosophies and why he likes the new Trident 88 console. He brought a fantastic band, Beck Black, and recorded them live.

The band consists of Beck Black (vocals/keys), Adam Alt (drums), and Mo (guitars).

There was a LOT of video recorded for this session that will be released in the near future by Trident Audio Developments that will feature reviews with Adam as well has recording techniques and a performance by the band. We’ll keep you posted about the release of the video.

Recording with Chad Smith (w/Video)

Recording with Chad Smith (w/Video)

Ultimate Studios, Inc. was recently invaded by Chad Smith and Kevin Chown who were recording for international superstar Tarja Turunen.

Tarja’s music is extremely dynamic with very orchestral arrangements. To match the demands of the music we set Chad up with a late 60’s Rogers Holiday kit with 10″, 12″, 13″ rack toms, 14″ & 16″ floor toms and a 24″ kick. This kit was massive and sounded even more massive!

Working together in Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats, Chad and Kevin have formed one of the most formidable rhythm sections in music. To make this session even better we tracked them together! The way a great rhythm section should be tracked!

“When you have a rhythm section as good as Chad and Kevin they absolutely have to play together. There is simply no other way to do it. Watching them interact with each other in the room and hearing the energy and groove they were creating was simply fantastic. This is exactly why I built Ultimate Studios, Inc!” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

Check out Tarja at: www.tarjaturunen.com and the Bombastic Meatbats at: www.facebook.com/bombasticmeatbats

Check out a short video clip from the session.

Awesome day tracking drums and bass with Chad Smith and Kevin Chown yesterday. Awesome rhythm section!

Duranbah Release New Album – Runaway

Duranbah Release New Album – Runaway

Duranbah, brothers Lucas Bomeny (drums) & Leonardo Bomeny (guitar/vocals), have released their new album “Runaway“. Joined by T-Bow Chabosson on bass and a guest appearance by Mateus Asato on guitar the Duranbah’s self-produced, sophmore, release is now available on iTunes and soon to be available on CD.

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Ultimate Studios, Inc. by Charlie Waymire & Ernesto Homeyer.

“I had a fantastic time working with Lucas and Leo. They are great guys and have some great songs. They were also very prepared which allowed us to track the majority of the parts live as a band with minimal overdubs. The energy they had in the room was really nice and I think we captured that.” says recording/mixing engineer Charlie Waymire.
