The last month of summer is upon us along with its heat. But as we go into the fall, things inside Primary Sound will still remain hot. There will be several projects going on at the Bloomington studio as well as some significant upgrades to equipment.
Here is a quick preview of what's going on, with more info to come:
- Southern Indiana's Split Rail, an Alt-Country/Neo-Outlaw outfit with Midwestern rock sensibilities, recorded its first album at PSS this summer with the record slated to be released in September. Maximum effort is going into producing, mixing and mastering Split Rail's initial release by PSS and master audio technician Jake Belser. This editor got an ear sample of a few seconds of a track at PSS recently, and let me just say - it sounds f&*%$@g awesome!
- Six time Grammy award winning Irish folklore band, the Chieftains stopped into Primary Sound Studios this summer to provide overdubs to the recording of Country/Bluegrass artist Jeff White's new album, scheduled for a fall release. With the magic of the Chieftains reverberating in the Ole' church studio of PSS, this album can't help but sound amazing.
- Another top Indiana band, Pissed Off Catfish, recorded their third album at Primary Sound Studios this summer as well. With a fall release scheduled for the album, the Country/Blues band looks to do some heavy touring this fall and winter.
- The University of Notre Dame's Children's Choir was recorded by Jake Belser of Primary Sound Studios at the Saint Meinrad's Cathedral Monastery recently. The Christmas album is currently being mixed and edited by Belser to be ready for a holiday release.
- Jake and Primary Sound Studios is excited to announce that a Raven M12 touch screen audio control panel is coming to the studio soon. Look for a podcast presentation and review of the new piece of technology after the fellas at PSS have a go at it!
- Also new to the studio are several brand new Shure head phone personal mixing stations with eight controllers each. PSS hopes to grant each artist more control of audio input during their recording sessions.
