NEW STUFF!

Hi everyone, Anne Freeman here to give you a quick update on what we have been up to. We have done a lot of work on the web site, and we thank Inform Creations for their help with that.

So you no longer need to log in to the web site to book online. We have made this easier for our customers, all you need to do is check our current calendar and find a time available and book with with deposit. This holds your time, and we make sure you have are contacted as quickly as possible to get the details of your project. We have contracted more engineers for our clients as well. We have interviewed hundreds of Recording Engineers from all over the country. Listened to thousands of reals and mixes, just so we can offer our clients the most professional product, by offering the best services, at the best prices. We have kept our prices the lowest in Colorado, considering we are running a full Pro-tools HD rig.

We have also just acquired a new Friedman Amp and Cab, that is available for in house rental. I have to tell you that this amp has the thickest and sickest tone you’ve ever heard. Seriously.

We had the PRS Custom 22 rigged with some new Bare Knuckle pickups, that are TONE MONSTERS as well. So we are ready for any project, looking for a distinct sound. We have added a new Engineer to our talent roster, as well. Jesse Avalon is an excellent recording and mix engineer, and we will be showing off what he can do for your project, very shortly here. He will be finishing up a mix for Chelsea Hersel that will knock your socks off. Tomorrow we have Eric Moon in again to orchestrate Chelsea’s new song, as well. We are excited to share it with you. Eric will then be playing some piano on a couple of blues tunes for the Ghost Embrace record, “Quantum Heart.” Yes, we said blues! I’m adding some old school flavor to this record. Stay tuned.

A Hearty Welcome to HyperThreat Studios!

Hello! Welcome to the “HyperThreat Blog.” I am Brandon Oglesby, in-house engineer here at HyperThreat Sound. As you can see, we have a wide variety of contributors to our Blog. For my contributions, I will be discussing topics related to the Music Industry and more specifically the Recording Studio.

The studio will be sharing many of our experience here and the knowledge we have obtained in the Industry. The recording world has changed immensely is the past two decades and the music scene has yet to catch up. We would like to provide you with the information and the services that help to bring the two back together in a more cohesive and positive experience for musicians, composers, and recording artists.

With the gear of the future readily available, many people are trying to build their own “home-studios.” This is a great way for any artist to get their ideas initially recorded. In order to get a professional sound however, something that would sell to radio stations or on iTunes, it needs to have quality and solid production values that only come from professionals with years of experience producing it. This is why HyperThreat takes the time, personal insight, and professional skill for every project to reach it’s fullest potential.

We look forward to having you come visit, see our studio, and experience first-hand our philosophy and professional environment. Our commitment to you is that everything we do will be the highest quality and the best you can expect for your investment in your career.

Brandon

Professional Gear, Quality, and Customer Service

I recently read a fantastic article in ProSound News. Thought I would share my own thoughts here regarding “WHAT’S IMPORTANT IN A STUDIO?”

For some people, Pro Quality Gear is what they tout as being the most important element in their studio. For others, the quality of the sound, mix, mastering, outputs, and finishing is most important. For others it’s “who” worked on the project for you.

To all the above, I say, “yes – that is important… but it’s not THE most important.” Okay, so what is most important, sir? Great question. For us at HyperThreat the most important thing is Customer Service. What difference does it make to have great gear if no one is coming in to use it? What good is the best mixing and mastering if no one is having your business mix and master? Great having some industry superstars working in your studio, but if no one is coming to your studio – what difference does it make?

Here’s the bottom line… and this is with any business, not just the audio business. Your first line with customers is “CUSTOMER SERVICE.” That means from the advertising, to the initial contacts, to the working relationships, finally to the finished product or service. If your customer service sucks… I guarantee your business will suck too… I can also guarantee that great customer service will also keep customers with you rather than going to those other places that have great gear, great work, and hero engineers (or whatever your business is). Why? Because people want to be treated with respect. They want to know you care about them first before your own profitability. I’m not saying your business and profits aren’t important… quite the contrary, I’m saying you WILL experience profitability and a booming business IF you treat your customers well. Listen to them. Help them. Make them feel like they are the most important people who have ever walked through your doors.

I find, in today’s world, that customer service in most places sucks. Seriously. I get waitresses that role their eyes at me. I’ve had phone service people treat me like I was stupid because I didn’t understand what they were saying (not going to mention AT&T). Do you think I’ll ever go back to these places? NO! So – make your customers know they are the reason for the season and your business will grow. Might even make it past the spooky “Within 5 years most business fail” stage.

At HyperThreat Studios – our customers ARE NUMBER ONE! We treat everyone with respect. We offer our professional experience, but at the end of the day, whatever you want – that’s what we’re going to deliver. Our goal is that your experience with us goes beyond the Professional Gear. Beyond the Quality. Beyond the sound. All starts with our intentional relationship with… you.

I Want to be a Singer

My guess is, and it’s only a guess, that 3 out of 5 people have said at least once in their lives, “I want to be a singer.” I know I did. Fortunately I got the opportunity. Sure, it’s in the Christian market, but still… I was able to be on 6 albums (do we even call them albums anymore?).

What about you? Do you have a dream? That’s where it all begins. You know, one of the things I’ve learned over the years is that the older you get, the less you dream. The less you dream, the less creative you become. The less creative you become, well… you get the idea. I think we, in the artists community, need to be really actively involved in encouraging dreaming again. Without dreams, we really have nothing to attain. Nothing to look forward to. Nothing to gain.

With schools taking more and more money away from “the arts” in education, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult for kids to have creative outlets. Remember all the concerts, plays, art shows we did/had when we were in school? It seems to me we had at least 3 activities every month at the schools I attended. Even more when I got into middle-school and high-school. Not so much today.

There have been scientific studies done on the impact of music in individual’s lives. Mozart, for example, has a unique way of teaching infants perfected incremental discernment. Mathematics. I can say in my own kids lives, because we constantly played Mozart and other classical music when they were infants, we have seen a propensity towards math and higher function skills. I’m not saying it’s a “wonder-drug” and that it is a perfected science, but I will say this… It has a profound effect on humans in general.

My goal growing up was to be a music therapist. I know the power and impact music has over our lives. Like smells… certain songs, lyrics, licks, can take you to a place in your past that brings a very full and real memory to life once again. That’s power! So, my question is… why do we abandon our dreams? Why do we give up on those hopes that “someday”… which never seems to come?

I would suggest that the first thing we need to do is… Commit. We have to commit to supporting the arts. We have to commit to supporting our own childhood dreams of perhaps doing something beyond the norm or out of the box. So what if it’s a hobby? You never know how a hobby (which will make you happy) could turn into a career (which would also make you happy). I have to ask… a real question – think before you answer… “WHAT’S STOPPING YOU?”

Don’t give in to the world’s view that, “why bother… it will never happen.” when that is a lie… It will happen, IF you want it to. It CAN happen, if you want it to. Why not be that singer? Who knows, you may be the next Adele…
