Recommend a recording studio in Metro Boston for doing reasonably-priced mixdowns from miscellaneous sources (ADAT, 4-track, DAT, hard disk, etc.).
So, my 30th birthday's coming up. Having spent over half my life as a songwriter/musician/radio producer/sound geek extraordinaire, I'm commemorating it with an archival retrospective of sound, incidental noise, shortwave recordings, music, biographical audio, etc., to give to friends in celebration of the big day.
Anyway, I have boxes of tapes going back over a dozen years in every imaginable format: DAT, 16-track reel, ADAT, 4-track cassette, standard 2-track tape, hard disk, you name it.
Assuming I bring my own playback gear for all of the above, please recommend a reasonably reputable studio with decent day rates in which I can spend eight to ten hours subjecting an engineer to my horrible history.
My favorite studio in Boston has always been Zippah
* in Brookline, and now I live next door to Q Division
. Some of the indie kids in town have talked up other places, but what sayest thou, MeFi?
Recommend me your favorite studios, basement hotspots, whiz-kid engineers, and Massachusetts mixologists to help clean up my warbly, chaotic, beautiful life into a reasonably EQ'd version of its former self.
Oh yeah, and I need this done by the first week of December.
(*For comparison's sake, Zippah's rate is $500/day. This is okay considering the level of expertise they have, but there are other places out there too...)
