Recording & Managing Your Sessions
CMS has recorded various types
of jazz, blues, pop, country and rock bands. Capturing the
feel in any room requires manipulating wave relationships
for clarity and trueness. Proper placement and separation
defeats the thinness and what is left is a solid spread
of the frequency spectrum specific for that room. We can
capture your sound here at CMS. With
a large room, and 4 separate isolation rooms available,
we can accommodate most size bands. Recording, mixing, mastering,

and no art work, thus leaving them hanging until completion.
Make sure your artwork is ready prior to mastering and also
verify you have the proper formats to send off the to duplicators
Like artwork, find your
duplicators as quickly as possible. Usually, duplicators
get backed up with work and your project can suffer for
it. Before mass duplication, verify that the duplicators
you choose can deliver correctly formatted media and that
