RECORDING

The studio hosts a great sounding recording room (60m2), with two glass-featured isolation booths. Besides those three recording spaces there are also two separate rooms for guitar & bass cabinets with wiring to the main recording room. Hence it's possible to record with your full band with eye contact and hardly any crosstalk. Because of the height (5m) and well planned acoustics there are almost no distracting reflections etc. Drums sound great in here. Last but not least the recording room, with it's theatre lighting, has a very relaxed and inspirational vibe. Many bands praised the energetic sound they captured in here.
