okay, here's the deal...
if you're a pro player and you need a pro studio with
acoustically-treated isolation rooms, $2000 Neumann microphones & other
high-end gear, years of professional experience, and all the amenities
you'd expect if you're paying $60-$100/hour, Dry Creek is
not what you're looking for. Omaha has lots of great recording
studios, and I'd be happy to refer you to one. (click
here for a list)
But if your needs are simple, especially if you're a folk/roots
musician, and you're just looking for decent results on a tight budget, we
just might be able to help.
Hi! I'm Kyle
Knapp, a local folk/americana artist. I built Dry Creek
Studio 7 years ago to finish and mix my own recording project, and
discovered I have a knack for it. Actually "built" is a little
misleading - I upgraded the computer in my home office, adding a
professional-quality soundcard, investing in some decent
microphones and other gadgets, and installing industry-grade Nuendo
software (this is not hobby software, but a high-end product from
comparable to ProTools).
album, I've produced full-blown album projects for
Kareen King, done a number of demo and hobby recordings, mixed and
mastered a few CDs recorded by local band at their homes, hosted a talk-show format
and am currently working on new album projects for singer/songwriters
Vicki Lynn, Kathryn King, and Kevin Sullivan. About a year ago I
upgraded my digital workstation and moved the studio out of my original
hole-in-the-wall into a larger acoustically-treated room.
Nothing fancy or flashy here, but I'm getting excellent results, at the
lowest rates in town! If you're looking to record your music, but
can't afford pro studio rates, check out our audio
samples and gear list, and if you like what you
hear, give us a call.
