Sound recording and production was the original business at Sniff n Break, long before the addition of video production services.
Over the years we have recorded and produced many genres of music and many of the performers have returned again and again to add another album to their discography.
The studio has separate control room, live room and drum room which doubles up as a vocal booth and can accommodate 5 people comfortably.
Tracking can be done 'live' - ie. all playing at the same time with each instrument recorded to it's own track - or multitracked by recording each person one at a time. Either way, as each instrument or vocal is on it's own track there is enormous scope for production whether you require a low budget demo or a fully produced work of art.
We have recorded hundreds of solo singer/songwriters, most of whom just want a very simple guitar and vocal recording and some who want a full band production.
With the aid of several musicians affiliated to the studio, a full production arrangement can be built around a solo based song by adding bass, drums keyboards etc to really bring the song to life.
With a massive library of sounds from rare historic instruments, ethnic instruments, classical instruments through to modern day synthesizer sounds anything can be achieved.
We have an ever-growing library of sound effects as well as instrument samples which can add another dimension to your songs.
SniffnBreak have written and produced many pieces for Film, TV documentary and DVD sell-thru products. We are well connected with musicians and writers and can undertake small projects in house or larger projects courtesy of our affiliates. If we feel we cannot do your project justice in house we put you directly in touch with one of our composer affiliates and do not charge a fee.
