Lachy Bruce. Producer, Engineer and Musician.

 

Utilizing over 10 years of industry experience, I help artists to fulfil their unique creative visions with a workflow that is attentive, personable and swift. Drawing upon a vast taste of musical influences, I hold skills and techniques which create authentic and high definition records that stand up against the greats while staying true to the artists’ identity.

 

Fuelled by a love of music and fresh ideas, I offer a recording experience that goes beyond the waveforms.

Pre-Production

Every great track starts with a great plan

Often an overlooked step, pre-production gives us a chance to assess the song's tempo, key, arrangement and instrumentation to identify the best way to present the tune. This process will help to solidify the intention of the song and inform decisions later in the recording process.

Tracking

Laying it down

Tracking is the guts of the recording process. Special care is taken here to ensure we are capturing the strongest performances and tonal qualities. This is typically done one instrument at a time, however some songs benefit greatly from 'live' tracking, where the band records their parts simultaneously.

Mixing

Putting it all together

All the best parts from tracking will fall into place here. Volume, equalisation, compression, tone, editing and fx are all committed at this stage. I usually work alone to construct this - and then provide drafts to the artist for critique. This phase can make or break the song. I use professional level software, plugins and hardware processing to create a high quality and high fidelity mix.

Mastering

The final touch

Once all the creative choices have concluded, all of our seperate tracks get summed into one file, which will then get a surgical like treatment to make it playback consistently across all devices and speakers. This is where the track gets it's loudness and is exported in appropriate formats for digital distribution, including Triple J Unearthed.
