Audio Production and Sound Reinforcement

Audio Production



The first engineering step of the music production process, recording is a technical process in which every instrument is captured in the most faithful way to the style of the song, with the highest quality possible.



Mixing is the stage in which the song gets together as a whole. All the recorded and edited tracks are processed in a way that gives the song its intended sonic profile. From the initial and static mix to the fine adjustments made at the end, the mixing process goes through every track and every section of the song, making the necessary adjustments to fit its intended style and the role every instrument has to play.

Different parameters define what happens inside a mix. There are the planes, which define a relation of predominance between tracks, by adjusting output and reverberation levels. There is also the tonal profile which is related to the frequency spectrum and is adjusted using an equalizer. Dynamics is another important parameter and it has to do with the relation between the loudest and quietest parts of a given signal. In this case, a compressor is used to tame the peaks, rise the level of the valleys, and also add desired tonal characteristics. The equalizer and the compressor are part of the processors that are useful when applied in a track-by-track basis, or to a group of the tracks, and also to the whole mix.

Mixing is a critical step in the audio production process and requires both, a technical and a musical sense, to identify what needs to be done to get the desired results. At Labaris we approach mixing with a goal-oriented mentality, giving every detail the adequate level of attention, but always keeping in the first place the desired result for the song as a unit.



No audio material is ready to be mixed right after the recording is ready. Different types of editing need to be made in order to prepare the tracks for mixing. Editing comprehends many tasks, such as comping different takes, correct performance errors, align the timing, check for phase issues, adjust the level to be consistent throughout the song, and many more. This is a critical phase in the audio production workflow and we dedicate ourselves to it with the same commitment as every other stage of the process.

Sound Reinforcement

When the architectural and acoustic characteristics of a venue are not sufficient by themselves to bring enough sound power and quality to the listeners, then there is the need for a Sound Reinforcement system. These systems amplify and distribute the sound throughout the venue by means of a series of interconnected electro-acoustical devices. This chain of audio devices takes the sound from all sound sources on stage, then mixes, distributes and amplifies it, in order to reach the whole audience.

System Design


Every venue has different Sound Reinforcement needs. Some of them will be more complex than others, or have a very specific set of parameters to follow. At Labaris, we approach every system differently, taking into account all the specific needs of each one. From sound power requirements definition based on SPL needs, to specific microphone choices, we go through every aspect of the Sound Reinforcement system design, to optimize it and make it efficient.

System Operation


We are also available to operate any Sound Reinforcement system that has already been built. From basic setup of analog or digital systems, to mixing an entire concert, we look for excellence on every project that we work on.
