The aim of uniquely produced recordings is to create a sonic experience that is fresh, engaging, and memorable. It could involve capturing the nuances of a particular performance or artist's style, enhancing the emotional impact of the music, or pushing the boundaries of traditional recording techniques to create a distinctive sonic identity.
Ultimately, being uniquely produced means that the recording engineering process has gone beyond standard practices and has resulted in a recording that stands out from the crowd, leaving a lasting impression on the listener.
The Hawkins Sound Ranch uses Lauten Microphones exclusively as well as a Trident 24A mixing console (soon to be replaced with Frank Zappa's very own Trident 80B console which recorded Joe's Garage & more.) DAW - Universal Audio's Luna, 3 Apollo 16X's, 1 Apollo 8x and countless UAD and Boutique Plugins.
Our house kit is a DW Design Series Drum Set (tuned for each performance) and 7 custom snares to choose from, from makers such as Honest Abe Drums and Franklin Drum Company We also have a wide range of amps and guitars for that killer tone that you're looking for.

Mixing is done in-house and includes up to 2 hours per song. $50/hr for additional work if needed/required.
We also offer every Artist a chance to record a brief podcast/interview that we call The Hawkins Sound Ranch Artist Series for our YouTube page FREE of charge. This is a way to gain exposure and to allow fans to get to know you on a more personal level.
Mastering is NOT done in house. Depending on your goal and budget, we have Professional Mastering Engineers that we can recommend for your project. We will not recommend AI run bots. Human all the way, as well as female empowerment within the industry.
A 50% Deposit is required upfront. This is a standard studio business practice all over North America. It keeps you, the artist, and me, the Producer/Engineer, accountable. All remaining fees due upon the completion of mixing as per The Producer/Engineer. Up to three revisions allowed per song. $50/hr above and beyond that.
