Resounding Sounds

S.Lieber

Mrs. Rochel Leah Reifer (Lamm) owns and operates a recording studio in Brooklyn. Mrs. Reifer mainly caters to the Brooklyn and Tri-state area, but has also received requests from places like Canada, England, and California. She happily agreed to talk about her work with us.

djMJ: Mrs. Reifer, can you tell us a little bit about what you do?

R.L.: I run a recording studio. Ladies and girls come to my studio to have their songs prerecorded with music. Sometimes, we do the recording without music, during the Three Weeks, for example.

The recording process works as follows: We all put on headphones. While my customers sing into the studio microphone in a room called the recording room or vocal booth, I sit in an adjoining room called the control room, separated by a glass wall, where I record their singing.

I make sure every word is sung perfectly. If I feel that the articulation, pitch (tune), or volume is imperfect, I ask them to sing it again. Sometimes, we repeat a line five times until we get it just right. After we’ve perfected it, I begin the “mixing processes.”
