DUAL PRODUCTION IS A TEAM OF EXPERIENCED MUSICIANS, COMPOSERS, PRODUCERS AND SOUND ENGINEERS, MANAGED BY BLANKA MADEROVÁ. WE PRODUCE AND RECORD MUSIC, HELP MAKE MUSIC ARRANGEMENTS FOR SONGS, FILMS, VIDEOS, PROVIDE REMIXES ETC. WE ALSO OFFER ANALOGUE AND DIGITAL MIXING AND MASTERING.
DUAL PRODUCTION AS PART OF FAUST STUDIOS
Our activities take place in Faust Studios in Prague which is one of the best-equipped and located studios in the Czech Republic. Vintage ïnstruments and analogue gear are available upon request, as well as Steinway piano, many guitar and bass amps, synths and drum sets. We prefer to create or record together with the artist so that he or she put their heart/personality into the project as much as possible. In many projects – if it is in the interest of the the artist and if it is not to the detriment of the project – we work very quickly.
In our music production, we try to combine intuition and rationality, male and female elements, spontaneity and precision, technical expertise and insight into the project as a whole. In case of half-finished compositions, we offer to help prepare the project for recording, together with the artist in the so-called “incubator” (Faust Lounge). There, we serve as vocal and instrumental coaches, explain the basics of composition, preparation for recording, etc
ANALOG KEYS AND EFFECTS
In the Faust Lab, analogue keyboards and effects (such as Prophet, Moog, different types of Korg, Fender piano, Hammonds, etc.) are available for composing and recording. Apart from that, we have a team of professional musicians from Prague (experienced drummers, bass players, guitarists, rappers and remix-making DJs, as well as string and brass ensembles)
We provide contacts for managers of artists, PR, technical support for concerts, graphic designers for album covers, and accompanying musicians and vocalists for concerts.
UNIQUENESS OF FAUST STUDIOS
The uniqueness of the studios where we work lies in their both analogue and digital equipment – from the big SSL mixer from 1970s in the Blue studio, Toft mixer in the Green Studio, Apollo and Apogee sound cards, vintage tube preamps, original vintage keyboards, to the classics such as Steinway Piano, Fender Rhodes, Hammond, and microphones from the ’50s to 2017, guitars from the 1950s and 1960s eg.: Jazzmaster Fender, Stratocaste, Gibson SG, Ludwig and Sonor drums.
There are 4 separate recording spaces in Faust studios:
Blue studio – the largest
Green studio– smaller, perfect for acoustic music, vocals, or smaller electro projects
Brown – ideal for film music production
One underground space is available for the recording of drums, loud guitars, strings etc.
