Diverse Productions of Poughkeepsie, NY is your one-stop production house for Audio Recording and Editing, Video Editing, Graphic Arts, and Multimedia Design. We offer a wide range of services, and many extras which come from an understanding of what creative people and projects really need but often lack. Having a knowledge of both the field of Audio Recording, and the Art of Presentation and Graphics, we offer an advantage that allows recording artists and others to get the word out about their work. We have years of experience doing those little things others can't, by filling in the gaps which some studios neglect, that force their clients to fill part of their requirements elsewhere. We offer Album Cover design and layout, DVD Authoring for those videos which need special attention, and so on. Our commitment to our customers does not end with the ordinary limited completion, but continues until they have a saleable product to offer the public. What is more, we help our clients to do more with less money, by making state of the art technology affordable.
We have a well-equipped Recording Studio at our Lynn Road facility, that allows us to record small ensembles in a comfortable homey atmosphere which tends to set people at ease. It has been our pleasure to accomodate people playing a wide range of styles, and possessing various levels of skill. We try to make them all sound good. Our list of past clients runs the gamut from legendary musicians like Pete Seeger to unknowns who may one day be legends, like Xoch and Bob Cage, or like Pete's album collaborator Randolphe Harris, and also includes more ordinary people whose aspiration is mainly to see that their music is preserved for posterity - the right way. It's all about making the song or piece sound the best it posssibly can - the way it really 'wants' to sound. Resident Engineer/Producer Jonathan J. Dickau aspires to be a modern-day Sam Phillips, in choosing to champion all kinds of musical cross-overs by artists who are breaking new ground rather than remaining bound by the music industry's genre boundaries. We are also fully equipped for editing, CD-mastering, vinyl restoration, and post production. Therefore we can often handle multiple projects, or multiple aspects of your creative project, simultaneously.
We are also well-equipped for on-site and remote recording of live events. Our Tascam DA-P1 allows us to record in flawless digital quality, far from any electrical outlet, for the ultimate in flexibility. Using the extra battery pack, we can capture up to 3 Hrs of Audio in the most remote locations. When nearer to electricity, we can offer even more options, however. We have already recorded a number of live events at both indoor and outdoor venues, and some of the performances we've captured have already appeared on CDs available for sale. We are proud to have among our recorded live performers The Raggedy Crew and Friends, The Fellowship Singers of the UUFP, Incus, Peachy Neechy, Morticia's Chair, and Muruga Booker with the Global Village Ceremonial Band. Our live-performance capture capability is well complemented by our ability to perform noise reduction through noise-print sampling, and provide other post-processing services such as EQ and sweetening, CD mastering, and more. Once your recording is finished, we can even do limited-run duplication, to ensure that your music gets 'out there.'
When the time comes to create the packaging necessary for a saleable product, we will aid you in creating a CD Album Cover and/or Booklet worthy of pride and admiration by all. We have already crafted Album Covers for numerous projects, including products that have received both National and International distribution. We created designs for the CD packaging of Xoch's "Cabaret," and "The ONE," Peter Krauss' "Night Music" and "Dream Collage," Candace Coates' "Flights of Fancy," Bob Cage's "Flat-Top," and several others. We can create impressive and colorful layouts for your Demos, CD-ROM presentations, DVDs, or other creative works, so that the packaging reflects the level of care which went into creating them. You deserve to have full control over the evolution of your final product, and we give you that control at every step of the process. If you want to display a professional-looking project, and you want to spend less money getting exactly what you want, we can help you. High-Definition scanning and Full-Color Laser printing complete the package. We even offer on-disc printing for limited-run CDs and DVDs.
We have extensive capabilities, with a unique attitude about giving the customer exactly what he or she wants, and that little something extra that makes everything come together. We can help you to create a product you can be proud of, with all of the necessary trappings to make it an attractive total package. Our attention to detail, and our pride of workmanship are second to none. We have an understanding of the subtleties and nuances of production work which gives us, and you, a distinct advantage when setting out to create a professional-looking, professional-sounding, and fully satisfying product for others to enjoy. It is our talent for getting the little things right, which will allow you to have the benefits of big studio sound, and big production house capabilities, at such an affordable rate that you'll be wanting to take all of your projects to the next level. Let us help you craft your next Song Demo, or design your next Album Cover. We are all about helping creative people excel. You will be pleased when you trust us to aid you in the process of building your professional career.
