With so many people on here being recording enthusiasts, I want to start a master list of all Shizzies that offer audio services.  These are all folks that you can hit up to help with your project instead of just going online and finding some local schmuck that's going to brickwall your shit and call it a day.  We all charge for our services, but can maybe help out at a discounted rate or for free if the circumstances are right.  

 

I'll be updating this list as time goes on.  If you want to get added, just send me a PM.  I'm not including session musicians as of right now, but I can start adding them if there's enough interest.  Also, I'm not adding everyone that's ever done this work before, but only people that are actively offering their services currently and are interested in taking on work.

 

Here's the list, in alphabetical order by last name:

If session musicians become a part of this list I would be interested in offering vocal services, specifically screams/growls.

Currently don't have the equipment to do it myself but I am all over the place all the time and I have a bandmate that I can work with as well.

 

edit: I should clarify that I would do this for free. I'm no expert by any means but I'd like to get better.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

I should have maybe added that as well as mastering for digital I do specialize in mastering for vinyl.  Most recently I did the vinyl master for Chipocrite's album Wordplay

Erik, thanks for putting this together!

I just wanted to expand on what I offer a bit, since it's a bit too much to include in the first post.

Audio restoration:
- I've got a LOT of experience (almost a decade's worth) dealing with less than ideal concert recordings. If you've got a live room recording that sounds less than ideal, I've got a lot of experience making barely-listenable recordings sound better.  Will get some before + after samples of this soon.  
- Have a take that is marred by a nasty buzz, or annoying digital clicks? In most cases I can remove those very transparently, it'll be like they were never there. 

Chiptune hardware recordings:
I can record your Famitracker NSFs, Genesis VGMs, and LSDJ tracks from real hardware.
NES: I have a modded NES and Powerpak. I can do authentic 2A03 recordings, and Powerpak hardware emulations of the VRC6, N163, Sunsoft-5B, and FDS expansions. Recordings can be split at the hardware level (2A03 Pulses, 2A03 Triangle/Noise/DPCM, Expansion) or the raw, mixed mono output of the NES hardware. 
GB: I have one pro-sounded DMG and flash card.
Genesis: I have a Genesis Model 3 with the Mega AMP mod: it's by far the crispest and cleanest Genesis I've ever heard. Conveniently I already have some recorded samples: 1 2 3

 

Also, I can vouch for poizon74's experience with mastering for vinyl. I have several albums which he's mastered and they've been consistently great sounding.

What do you use to track this stuff?  Preamps/interface I mean specifically?

Right now I've been using a Zoom H4n. It has a decently low noise floor on the line in, and it doesn't seem to color the sound in any appreciable way. The genesis audio samples I linked were recorded with this setup.
I'm planning investing in one of the Focusrite Scarlet interfaces (or similar) at some point.

I can vouch for the Scarlet, very nice quality interface, especially for the money.

 

I was curious because I've done shoot outs with a ton of crazy high end preamps and my Aurora16.  For whatever reason, I like the Great River 500NV most on gameboy and speak n spell, but the P-1 (or a Pacifica, same deal) just sounds MUCH better on an NES.  I end up using my pair of P-1s a lot, even on gameboy, for the convenience.  But LSDj in a pro sound mod DMG, through a great river, through a distressor set with medium ratio but high input gain, into the aurora just sounds AMAZING.

 

I've tried some 8-bit synths though the preamps I build too (the CAPI VP series), but they never impressed me all that much.  those preamps really slay with microphones, not so much with DIs.  Then again, maybe they would with a high end DI box like an Avalon or something...
