While some projects might benefit from being done in a studio and others require the studio, sometimes getting out on location and recording in real time, direct to stereo can result in a more exciting record, with more of the vitality and dynamic "snap" of a live performance.
BDA does recordings in environments where the performers sound their best. Locations are carefully chosen for their ability to "support" the performers and the music they create.
With a high resolution recording chain, performances destined for CD (or perhaps the audio tracks of a DVD) will sound their best, with expansive stereo imaging and full dynamic range. BDA will capture the sense of "Life" normally experienced only in the presence of the musicians.
A unique synthesis of years of pro audio experience combined with audiophile sensibilities, our production philosophy is to create recordings that bring the listener to the performance event. Focus and dynamics, often missing from many recordings, are at the forefront of the sound BDA captures.
Building a studio? Planning a recording project? Getting ready to mix? Perhaps you're working on an album and want to know how to best prepare for mastering your project.

This is what many folks know us for. When it comes time for the last creative step in your project, the last chance for any adjustments, you want experienced ears you can trust.
