Medollic's album Dollhouse is finally finished and has been mastered by Eric Conn (Dixie Chicks, Garth Brookes, Skid Row) of Independent Mastering in Nashville.
We're really proud of how it sounds and we're also proud of the dynamic range presented in the recording.
You may notice that our record sounds fractionally lower in apparent volume than some other rock recordings. This is because the RMS (average volume) of the recording is lower, overall. We have elected to allow more drums, more guitars, more bass, more vocals to expand within the same space, where other bands might give you a recording that takes up all the space.
The result is that you may need to nudge up your volume knob on whatever you are playing it on. It will sound better, bigger and rockier than the majority of other modern recordings when they are listened to at the same output level. Other recordings will sound squashed and lacking in punch and space.
Some albums that are at a similar overall level to Dollhouse are: ACDC's Back In Black, The Living End's The Living End, Rage Against The Machine's Rage Against The Machine, The Wallflowers' Bringing Down The Horse, John Mayer's Continuum, The Spin Doctors' Pocket Full of Kryptonite, Bruce Springsteen's Magic, Cake's Fashion Nugget, Ryan Adams' Gold and Live's Throwing Copper.
A really great explanation is given here:
Over the last 10 years, music producers (like myself!) and mastering engineers are increasingly being asked to make their music sound as loud as possible to the initial listen. All this does is make you turn it down to a level that suits your ears. With our recording, you will take it to the level that suits your ears, but you will be immersed in much more sound and it will not hurt your ears over periods of extended listening (which we expect you to be doing!).
"It's a natural sounding rock record-- like they used to sound like! You remember, good songs, good players, rocking out? Where'd that go? HEY! Here it is!"
-- Eric Conn (Independent Mastering) on mastering Medollic's Dollhouse album.
We hope you appreciate the dynamics and quality of the recording as we try to take back the art of music production!
While everybody else celebrates Australia Day, Lix and James are working on the final two songs for the Medollic album. We've got 8 ground-breaking mixes done and we've only got two more songs to sing on!
We're also in the process of updating our website to ensure that news is up to date and easy for us to manage.
The end of the road is near and we're excited about what lies ahead.
