Technical Excellence meets Natural Ambience

The large 24 sq.m. Control Room has the latest SSL DAW, using a 7.2 version software with an Alpha Link interface. The recording desk is a classic Neve Sidecar from the early 80s, supplemented with Pre-Amps from Studer, Focusrite and TLA. Post-recording monitoring is via a Yamaha O2R96. The digital post-production enviroment is complemented by an extensive range of microphones, analogue compressors, accessories and outboard.

We concentrate on obtaining a high-quality original recording and have been extremely succesful in capturing a true and natural live sound from the excellent acoustics of the recording areas.
