Description - Blitz Recording Studios

The sound of your project is everything. The best performance can be lost if you don’t have an Engineer/Producer with great ears and an understanding of what you’re trying to achieve.  Whether you are looking for a kick-ass drum sound, powerful vocals, or the delicate sounds of a whisper across the strings of an acoustic guitar, the engineer can make all the difference.  That Engineer is Richard Blitz.

We use a Pro Tools 10 HD system on a fast Mac Pro coupled with great mics and many of the hottest plug-ins available like the Waves Diamond bundle, McDSP suite, the Eventide Anthology Bundle and Steven Slate's amazing Trigger and mastering FG-X We have the “know how” will help you create an exceptional project. We also have 24 tracks of 16 bit ADAT, should you need it.
As a well-known San Diego Producer/Engineer/Performer, Richard Blitz has the experience and the tools you need to record your masterpiece.  BLITZ RECORDING STUDIOS has engineered and produced some of San Diego’s finest artists for over 25 years.  His projects have included everything from Rock, Pop to Rhythm & Blues, Rap/Hip Hop, Jazz, Country, Folk, Bluegrass, Alternative, Reggae, Electronica, Ambient Digital, Opera, electric, eclectic and acoustic instruments of all kinds.

Richard has recorded live performances, tracks for radio & television sound recordings, and written and produced soundtracks for corporate giants such Google, BMW, Bank of America, Magellan, Hewlett Packard, Ford, San Diego’s KGB Sky Shows, and much more.  He is a wizard at dialog editing and has done many projects for medical groups such as Glaxo Smith Klein, and motivational speakers such as Dennis Waitley and Tony Robbins Worldwide. He has done a number of very successful books on tape as well.

Some people need just an Engineer. Others need to find musicians for their project...either way, you’re covered at BLITZ RECORDING. Richard is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who has been performing live and recording since he was in his teens. He can help you put your project together...whatever you need.  From arrangement to final release, Blitz is da man.

If you want a creative and inspiring environment, superior production, and the encouragement that can make the difference in the outcome of your project...

Richard Blitz has an intuitive way of getting great performances quickly, and he brings out the best of every artist he works with.
