Langlei Studios has been in the recording services industry for over 20 years, in which time we have been fortunate to work with many great bands & musicians plus several other prestigious clients.
Every month Duncan masters the audio for Total Guitar, Europe’s best-selling guitar magazine. He has also produced a number of the VIP backing tracks. If you are into bands, equipment, playing styles and techniques then Total Guitar is a must read.
We also worked with Rockschool on their 2012–2018 syllabus for drums, bass and guitar. The main tracks in the syllabus were recorded at Genesis's studio, The Farm, where Nick Davies (Genesis, XTC, Deep Purple) was the recording engineer with Mark Binge as his assistant. From there all project stems were sent to Langlei Studios for editing, mixing and mastering before being sent for production.
The project featured contributions from top session players, including the world famous fusion guitarist Larry Carlton. Mr. Carlton played on two tracks written by Kit Morgan (‘Striped Shirt’ and ‘Mind The Gaps’) which feature in Rockschool’s Grades 5 and 8 books for drums, bass and guitar. If you are looking to gain qualifications in your chosen instrument then the Rockschool syllabuses for guitar, bass and drums are in our opinion the most coveted when it comes to pop, rock, jazz and contemporary styles.
In 2013, we added video production to our list of services. Over the last couple of years, we have worked on some great projects, including some pop/rock, tuition and corporate videos. Recently, we have been lucky enough to work on some Videos for Innovate UK. This has been a great opportunity and has seen Duncan film interviews and technology at some very interesting places including Gordon Murray Design, Williams F1, Rolls Royce aerospace, Ceres power, FB1 systems, Delta motorsport and the Innovate 2016 show to name just a few.
Testimony from Chris Bird - Total Guitar Magazine :
Duncan Jordan has been mastering the audio for Total Guitar magazine's covermount CD since 2007. With a minimum of 40 audio files per month -and at times, many more- this is no small task, especially given the variety of musical styles, which can range from single note examples to rich, full arrangements of popular songs.
Never phased (pun intended!) by the workload Duncan has always delivered on deadline and without fuss. It's the kind of professionalism that we simply cannot do without on Total Guitar. With his deadline always falling at a critical time in the magazine's production process Duncan never lets us down, regardless of what we throw at him.
Duncan has also contributed audio to the magazine in the form of backing tracks for our subscribers to jam over. Unsurprisingly, the quality of these was exceptional. Decent, authentic playing. Excellent mixing and mastering. And, as is usual with magazine work, delivered on time to tight a deadline.
It's great to see Langlei Studios growing. In six years of working with Duncan on Total Guitar I've found him to be highly knowledgeable, totally reliable and, perhaps most importantly, a decent bloke who is really easy to work with. With Duncan at the helm I'm sure Langlei Studios will continue to go from strength to strength.
