Acoustic Concert Recording

From small chamber ensembles to full orchestra, with choir, symphonic band, to mixed acoustic and electronic ensembles; all concert performances have a particular character that can be captured using acoustic recording techniques. Also full multi-track capability is possible to completely, and realistically, change the acoustic presentation of a recorded concert.

Classical Album

What do you want your performances to sound like? Using film-scoring and pop recording techniques in conjunction with established classical and acoustic ensemble engineering, the possibilities are endless. Nick seeks to have a recording’s sonics reflect the moods and colors of the music and the performance, changing and fluctuating with each moment. His acoustic recordings can achieve this while still retaining the feel of a standard acoustic recording; or they can leave the realm of real-world acoustic possibility altogether.


Nick Tipp was the recording engineer for the LA Opera under Audio Producer Fred Vogler for two seasons. During his tenure as recording engineer the LA Opera released a double grammy winning DVD: The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny. Best Opera Recording 2009, Best Classical Album 2009. From large-scale productions to small regional theaters, Nick is capable of delivering the same quality recordings.

Audition Tapes

Classical instrumental, vocal, and Jazz instrumental and vocal audition tapes for college, festivals, and competitions. Wouldn’t you prefer to present yourself in the best possible fashion? Nick has extensive experience in invisible classical editing, and imperceptible tuning of recordings of acoustic instruments and voices.
