Recordings
Our Studio Room, where musicians play and record, is 50 sqm wide, has an high ceiling and no foam rubber. It features excellent acoustics and allows many musicians to play and record together, where necessary separated by mobile acoustic barriers.
Our standard recording matrix is 56 preamplifiers to 56 tracks, plus 56 machine returns and up to 24 independent cue monitor mixes (for headphones or wedge monitoring).
If required, we can easily extend the tracks to a number of 80, separate and simultaneous.
