2015.06.03 // Cosmetics & Percussion

We've made some huge improvements to the visual presentation of the live room (read: garage) and we're not done yet! We're treating part of the room with acoustic filler, and we're placing a handful of folding baffles around to dampen reflections as needed. Things are looking good at Clarity!

Our first live room performance comes from our friends Just in Case. They'll be getting started on their 13-song full-length album with Clarity setting the mood via drum tones and tracking! We'll keep an eye on their progress to get those songs posted when they're done with the rest of the process! :)

2015.05.05 // Acoustic & Hip Hop

Relatively low-key month coming up at Clarity. On the books so far, we've got a couple different hip hop acts swinging through to lay down vocals and get some mastering done, and we've got our good friend Ilya Shatov tracking a handful of acoustic songs he's been working on the past year. Check out the calendar to the right, and if we've got an opening where you fit in, contact us! Let's keep it rolling! :)

2015.04.25 // Alive & Well

Next week, Alive & Well is headed out of town to track a five-song EP with Beau Burchell. He's done some killer work with Name Taken, The Bronx, Underoath, and From First to Last, and of course his own project, Saosin. It's always exciting to get in the studio with another engineer and observe how they do things, and Beau's got a great resume, so this is extra special. I'll be back after May 5th, so let's book some more time!

2015.04.12 // Gear Rentals

Clarity is now offering gear rentals! Our entire arsenal of guitars and amps can be made available for daily rental use! All rentals are on a case-by-case basis, but we're excited to be allowing musicians to have access to high end guitars and amps for their recordings and sessions!

Contact us for more information!

2015.04.08 // April Tracking

This month, The ShyFox comes back in to track another single with us. We're excited to get back to work with Alexis (our favorite drummer - he's a machine!) and the new lineup for the band. Look for a new release from them in June!

2015.03.22 // New Effects

Quick update to let you know about a couple new additions to the pedal collection!

We've picked up a Lovepedal Hi-Volt and a TC Electronics Trinity 2 Reverb.

The Hi-Volt is a crisp but rich sounding overdrive and distortion pedal that can thicken up your sound or overdrive your clean amp into oblivion. It's quickly become a favorite amongst the resident guitarists.

The Trinity 2 is a lush arena style reverb that has a TON of great usable settings and can be programmed with custom presets to do things reverb shouldn't be able to do. We're excited!

2015.03.08 // March is Full-Length Month...?

It sure seems like this is the month to kick off full-length albums. We've got Everybody Knows, The Calefaction, and Addy G getting started on a ludicrous amount of music. Drum tracking and beat making galore. Check back soon for more info!

2015.02.04 // Live Pre-Production

We've been at it all month doing live pre-production with Everybody Knows for their new album this Summer. Tracks are sounding great!

Speaking of pre-production, did you know that Clarity offers full 16-track live services? We can get you in, get your tracks laid down the way you're used to playing them, and work on them together. If you're interested in production services beyond that, we can even work with you to help improve your songs and tighten them up before you come back to track your album.

Contact us for more info!

Reviews of Our Work
"If you're looking for an amazing audio production studio in San Diego County, Clarity Recordings crushes it. Sean not only has a great ear and some amazing gear, he has the heart of an artist and is very intuitive to what other artists are trying encapsulate with their unique and individual sounds."

"Sean is the master of audio! I felt comfortable and confident right away with his abilities. He offered great advice throughout the recording and it was much appreciated. I am very happy with my overall experience and product in the end. This is my go to studio!"
