holistic: characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole
Staple Chest Audio is a full service music and sound post-production company ran by composer/engineer/producer Christopher Botta. What we do best is 'holistic audio production', which means we can help conceive, record, and mix/master (create, capture, and present) your work. We find that working this way yields stronger, clearer music and sound.
In the creation stage we can help you compose, arrange, and produce your music. Having a wide range of experience from classical composition to commercial production, we can bring a modern sensibility to your song, album or video. We specialize in evocative orchestral/chamber music arrangements and electronic production.
In the capturing stage, we offer a variety of beautiful mics and preamps: tube and FET, vintage and modern. Our array of guitars, synths, and auxillary instruments will help add excitement and motion to your project. We also have access to a wide network of session players from string quartets to brass bands.
In the presentation stage we can both color and clean up your project with mastering-grade outboard compression, EQ, reverb, distortion, and 32 channel analog summing (audio nerds check out our 'Gear' page). Of course we also have plenty of plugins, including a UAD collection.
