About

Phonoclassical is an organization of highly talented sound engineers and producers specialized in classical and jazz music productions. Our team has more than 15 years of experience working globally with some of the most renowned orchestras, conductors and ensembles. Respect for sound & music are some of our priorities when working with our talented artists.

Production

In classical recording the production process is one of the keys to success. The right recording location should be chosen or supervised before recording. During the recording process precise indications should be given to the artists in order to have the best possible version from every player and music section. The digital 4 point source destination editing process will include the choice of the best possible takes recorded in each case to produce an outstanding version of the musical piece. We offer Sourceconnect online production sessions.

Recording

The sonic aesthetic of a recording is defined in several ways, one of the important factors is the recording approach taken by the tonmeister. A baroque ensemble will require different sonic qualities than a full orchestra playing 21st century music.
To capture our artists sonic qualities to the slightest detail Phonoclassical records with high end Digital Audio Denmark preamp / converters and a variety of microphones from DPA, Schoeps and Neumann.

Postproduction

We can offer mixing sessions of up to 32 tracks and 384kHz sample rate 5.0 surround and stereo. The mixing process will output clarity balance and depth to your recordings.
In mastering sessions we take care to every detail preserving the dynamics of our performers. Phonoclassical outputs master files in DDP 2.0, CD Image, hi res PCM/BWF files or compressed files for download.
We can accept any of your Pro tools sessions, Pyramix, Sequoia and Reaper projects ;).

Live Sound

Phonoclassical is a reference when it comes to large scale orchestra and opera amplifications.
