Dominelli Studios is a boutique, professional recording studio that is located in the quiet area of Campbell Park in St. Albert (right off the Anthony Henday).  Owned by Sandro Dominelli, a legacy in the Canadian music industry, this is a studio that prides itself on collaborating with artists of all backgrounds to create high quality recording projects.  What can you expect when you come to Dominelli Studios - here are the steps that are taken during the recording process to support you.  

Step 1 - Consultation and Tour
The recording process begins by booking your complementary consultation and studio tour (either in person or virtual) via our Dominelli Studios Booking Portal or by emailing Sandro at sandrodominelli@gmail.com.  You and Sandro will discuss your vision, and make a plan for how he can best support your project.

Step 2 - Pre-Production (optional)
This is where things begin to vary a bit depending upon the needs of each artist/project/band.  Sometimes you will begin with pre-production (record a scratch or practice recording of your song) and you and Sandro will craft the sound of the project together - you may decide upon instrumentation and hiring session musicians (professional players), or even adding a section or song writing together if that is of interest.  OR if your song is more established and you have a band or would like to play solo, you may jump right into Step 3 and skip this part of the recording process.

Step 3 - Tracking
Now it's time to record your song for real.  Sandro picks the perfect microphones, pre-amps, and other gear - and then dials in your desired sound.  This is where the professional recording studio really pays off, as you are receiving the highest quality audio possible.  You will be performing in a beautiful professionally acoustically treated live room or isolation booth and and running your music through state of the art equipment.  The clarity of sound that is achieved in this way will set your music apart from the rest.  

Step 4 - Editing
Sandro now takes your recorded project and begins to "clean it up". If you played a bad chord, sung a flat note, sped up or slowed down, or had any other funky moments - this is where the studio magic comes in and Sandro goes through your track to fix all of these little imperfections.  

Step 5 - Mixing
With the editing complete, now Sandro begins to mix the song, which basically brings the music to life.  He brings in different sounds (reverb, delay, etc), adjusts volume levels, EQ, and other trade secrets to create the "sparkle" of a brilliant professionally recorded song.  

Step 6 - Mastering 
This is the final touch and prepares your music to be of radio-quality sound.  Mastering smooths out the song, adding another layer of EQ and sparkle, creating a beautiful finished product.

Step 7 - Release
It's time for the world to hear your music!  Dominelli Studios is proud to offer packages to support you in releasing your music to Spotify, iTunes, YouTube Music, etc.  Visit our Dominelli Studios Booking Portal to learn more.
