Facilities

Recording Rooms

The studio is composed of an entire 300 year old home that was renovated in 2007. The building was renovated using natural elements, oils, and paints in an attempt to retain its original style. The studio contains 6 recording rooms with variable acoustics that are all interconnected with mogami, digital, and cat 5 cables to both our control and machine rooms. This enables our clients to capture the diverse sounds of our recording spaces. The wide range of recording equipment, instruments, and recording rooms give infinite possibilities for creating new sounds.

Our lounge offers a comfortable place to relax when not recording. We also offer remote recording possibilities so one can take advantage of the acoustics of our local churches, castles and other interesting recording spaces.
