Jake Sims Utilizes The Frequency Factory to Create Organic Sound

Using real instruments on records seems to be sort of a lost art now days. As new technology pushes real instruments out of the picture, it also pushes out real tracking studios. We are firm believers that music is not the same with out the human element. It lacks character and ends up sounding "square". Although we love new recording technology as much as anyone, we respect the traditions of where music comes from and always strive to keep it "real". Now that we have that out of the way we'll transition into our session this last weekend....

Columbus, Ohio resident Jake Sims landed at our studio in search of organic sounds. Jake has tons of talent, like TONS.  He also has had lots of experience recording. What he had never been given was the chance to do is really hear his song, recorded with real instruments, like it sounds when you're in the room with him and a band. Circa last weekend, he got 3 other musicians in a room and made it happen. Jake, producer/guitarist Josey McFaddin, Bassist Cody Aledia, and drummer/engineer Jeff Martin captured the magic of recording a song live together, at the same time. Mind you, Cody and Jeff had never met, let alone played with Jake. After a couple hours of working out the tune and polishing the performances he ended up with 4 minutes of time captured and locked in a device we call sound. Following the session, everyone involved had the same mindset, "These types of sessions are our favorites and take us back to why we really started making music in the first place." Be on the look out for Jakes song on iTunes and Spotify this spring.
