IVAN SCHMIDT BIOGRAPHY

I don`t like word "composer", the phrase "I make music" is more than composing. It is composition, orchestration, sound design, engineering, mixing, etc. It is critical listening and finding the balance of creativity, vision and technical skills. I support the film industry top composers of the world, music producers, musicians, music supervisors, songwriters, artists, djs and studios.


Extensive knowledge of the classical orchestral forms over analog sound design and a mastery of the studio technologies create tandem which is paired with skill of a multi-instrumentalist. My skills are playing the piano, synthesizers, organ, brass instruments and drums, since my 6 years. I studied music for twelve years. It describes me in the category of the "full contact composers".


My music career started in Slovakia, next in Vienna for the studio as sound assistent where I achieved the new possibility of the composing intro music with the epic style for the large music shows for several years.


My creativity was limited from the technical reasons. A studio time was very expensive and I didn`t have money. I continued in the studies at university, outside of the music industry. I achieved skills, experiences and praxis of professional senior manager for managing, transfomations, security and risks. Thanks to this work I had the possibility to finance my own 37 Scoring Dolby Atmos Music Studio which has the most modern technologies and sound design, on-tailor.


Professional and personal relationships are very important for me, for the best cooperation. I love creative people and making things that will last beyond years. My goal is to be a true music ambassador. I hope you too.

THE SOUND LABORATORY

I love the big symphonic sound, the combination of the analog sound and the human voice. There is an amazing game of the vibration for every element of the sound where you are trying to achieve the emotional mood.


Where you can`t reach the emotional place using the strings, you instantly can use the choir. The voice and the singing, it`s the oldest instrument which a word has never had. It comes from you, it comes from our deep history and our personal history. So whatever you instantly give, you can give a chord piano sequence, you can give two strings and then you can give two voices.


And only one woman voice is enough when we need their instant emotions. And now what else I`m doing otherwise how to completely manipulate people and that`s meaningful.


The great thing about the film world is the possibility to work with the best orchestras and the best singers in the world and you can make music with them. And only costs of it are that you have to try and make it fit in the film.



BEHIND THE SOUND

All timeless contemporary sounds, compositions, designs and mix productions are prepared in my high end 37 Scoring Dolby Atmos Music Studio with the ability to deliver the modern technologies and still keeping analogue ambiance. For natural sounds I prefer various different natural spaces with natural reverb.


I was a member in the award-winning team in the category "The Best Music Show" in 2018 where our team prepared hybrid orchestral intro with techno layering for one of the largest worldwide music shows.



SOUND LABORATORY

I think Avid Protools is as a laboratory, as an environment, where I can create something, my vision, where I make all steps. I start with a vision, recording, mixing, mastering, all steps.


I use hybrid system, it means Protools is the centre of where the things happen. Protools speak with devices, which are highly customised on-tailor for me and again, devices and samples speak with Protools.


I have big gallery of the sounds for various needs. Every sound and sample is resampling by the on-tailor processing, it is my secret weapon. I have 24 tracks of the various mics for every sound or for sound layers of the sound which I can mix down to the Atmos tracks. Whatever instruments which I use are a part of the journey where I`m trying to do it in a seamless way by the hand of an artist.

SERVICES

I love the big symphonic sound, the combination of the analog sound and the human voice. There is an amazing game of the vibration for every element of the sound. I love techno too :)

I support the film industry top composers of the world, music producers, musicians, music supervisors, songwriters, artists, djs and studios.



Transform your original ideas from midi and demos into a full range instruments recording and sound design prepared for the song stems mix at the highest possible quality. Traditional live instruments bring another dimension to the music.



I make music for creating a unique sonic picture.

I provide surround and cinema Dolby Atmos mixing for the musical vision of the sonic space and depth combined by the character of the instruments, panning, levels, processing, effects, and the final mastering with the high-end processors to master.



I work only on selected projects so I can devote the necessary energy and focus creating on that.

37 SCORING DOLBY ATMOS MUSIC STUDIO

37 Scoring Music Studio makes inspiring professional Dolby Atmos sound design and music with focusing on the large format music, music shows and films, in collaboration with the world`s best artists.


All timeless contemporary sounds, compositions, designs and mix productions are prepared in my 37 Scoring Dolby Atmos Music Studio with the ability to deliver the modern technologies and still to keep analogue ambiance. Studio has fully compatibility with Hollywood studios.


37 Scoring Music Studio has matchless facilities for all the state-of-the-art aspects of music production, with the perfect flexibility of the sound design experiments for film scoring, mixing or mastering for all audio formats. And of course we love modern music like techno, EDM and other genres, too.


Recording equipment and recording process has taken many different steps and changes. For recording I like primary ribbon and valve mics through Neve Montserrat preamps and the 88R Neve console, converted with the Focusrite RED or Prism AD converters at 48, 96 or 192 kHz, as I need.


Music studio was my dream for long time. The dream has become a reality since 2018. Location is in Bratislava, Slovakia (EU). Secret weapon of the recording is to be transported while for a monumental sound I prefer various different natural spaces with natural reverb. Studio is private for me, it is not for a rental.



FEATURES

I`m using the modern technologies and still keeping ultimately analogue ambiance in format from stereo to Dolby Atmos 9.2.4 and the 48, 96 or 192 kHz sound quality. I`m starting with Apple, AVID Protools HDX technologies, over various synthesisers and workstations as for example Yamaha, Doepfer, Arturia, Moog, Virus, Roland, to the brand of the music studio gears as API, Chandler, Neve, Focusrite, Elysia, Emirical Labs, Manley, DBX, Pultec, SSL, TC Electronic, Eventide, Behringer, JBL, Drawmer, etc. (Note: All equipment and synthesisers did not take on sponsorships offered by any synthesiser or audio-equipment manufacturer.)



MISSION

I like a musician’s natural creativity, sound complexity combined with music theory knowledge and reflexes, as the computers, and creating and performing music with new technology should lead to more spontaneous and instantaneous music creations. In many recording environments musicians would frustratingly play around with interfaces for a piece of music to materialise, and sadly, in some instances, this would result in music the creation by trial and error. This, in my view, was not the way to create the honest music. Also, I don`t like albums of the artists with same music, too, but I like own life and tail for every second of the song with multilayered textures, phrasing and expression on every key note, complexity of the sound.

Please use the social network private message for the contact, f.e. Instagram direct message.

MUSIC STUDIO DESIGN

I use Apple technology, with zero-latency high-speed inter-communication. For audio processing is used DAW AVID Pro Tools. Additional audio processing using world-class AVID HDX, UAD-2 DSP, on-tailor DSP with additional high-computing performance and Blackmagic Picture. Data are stored on ultra high speed Blackmagic SSD storage and they are extended with the storage arrays with SSD. Even projects with hundreds of tracks and effects can be mixed in real time.

The main audio interface Focusrite RED 8PRE offering all standards for Pro Tools, ADAT, Dante network and high resolution 32 bit 192 kHz AD/DA conversion together with zero-latency monitoring. Focusrite is extended with audio preamps and Midi interface.

High resolution monitoring is provided by Yamaha, Sony, JBL, AKG, etc.

Mastering section combines processing by brands Elysia, Chandler Limited, Manley, SPL, Kramer Tape and Abbey Road EMI TG Mastering Chain. My love is the EMI TG12413 Zener Limiter with EMI TG12345.

Comfortable Pro Tools mixing is combined together with the direct parameter access, with AVID control unit and with a very big love of the large-format 72-channel Neve® VXS™ virtual analog console. For unlimited mixing and for the unique sound design and acoustic characteristics are available all needed studio gears. I`m big fan of the virtual dsp processors with hw accelerators because the sound modeling has same properties as hw solution without any differencies. My really big love are the high-end Eventide Ultra-Harmonizer, the high-end boutique Black Box Analog Design HG-2 tube processor with 12AX7 tubes, 6U8A pentode and triode tubes, and huge Scheps Omni Channel designed with Grammy-winning mixer Andrew Scheps (used by Adele, Jay Z, Metallica) delivers combinations of compression, eq, saturation colors and many more.

All connected studio equipment uses on-tailor exclusively the MXR studio cables.

Video editing is provided by AVID Media Composer.
