Our studios are equipped to cater for all stages of making records - from pre-production all the way through to final mix.
Our 'preferred' modus operandi is capturing the energy, interaction and vibe of a real, live, performing band. We believe that bands play at their best when they are all together, in the same room - just like a good rehearsal or live performance. We dislike chopping up entire drum takes and lining everything up to a grid.
We also like tape, and the 'rose coloured glasses' effect it has on recorded sounds. In other words, stuff sounds better when you hit 'play' and tape is a superior capture medium due to it's dynamic range, frequency response and reliability.
Never fear though! We aren't completely in the dark ages. For overdubs and mix, we use either Protools 9/10 or Logic with Apogee Converters.
We can work fast (how does 16 songs tracked in a day sound?) or we can be meticulous (how does 5 days to mix 1 song sound?) - and everything in between. We MUCH prefer quality over quantity however always strive to meet everyones budgetary and artistic constraints.
