We offer a range of services as described below
Our approach to recording depends on the individual requirements of each project. Typically, we prefer to record acoustic elements of each track at a location familiar to the artist (e.g. their regular rehearsal studio, or even their home!). We find that this approach has a number of benefits - an artist will usually be at their best when performing in a familiar environment, and means the minimum inconvenience to them. In addition this approach keeps the cost of studio time down, keeping the fees we charge to a minimum! We then overdub, mix and master at our residential studio in York.
We are in touch with a diverse set of session musicians in both Yorkshire and London who can add a professional touch to a track.

Lets be honest, theres a million and one dodgy 'music technology' courses our there today. But are they actually any good? John, the owner of Precentor, is a graduate of the highest academic qualification available in the UK for Sound Engineering - the prestigious Electronic Engineering with Music Technology Systems from the University of York (1st Class Honours). All our Engineers are qualified to at least BEng level. We don't want to sound arrogant, but quite simply this means we're clued up when it comes to the academic side of Sound Engineering.
