room

The studio’s greatest asset is the large recording room (90 sqm). With 5.5 meters high ceilings, soundwaves gets the chance to bloom properly. The room offers great opportunities for experimenting with microphone placements.

The live-room stands on its own con­crete slab with dou­ble exte­ri­or walls and ceil­ing to min­i­mize sound leak­ing in or out. The inner walls are made of wood and wired for micro­phones, speak­ers and for re-amp­ing pur­pos­es.

There are two amplifier/song booths with win­dows fac­ing the live room that sup­plies good sep­a­ra­tion between the instru­ments for live track­ing.

Dur­ing record­ing, you can adjust your own mix with Hear­back-mix­ers. There are five per­son­al mix­ers, with two head­phone out­puts in each pro­vid­ing many pos­si­bil­i­ties.

The live-room has wood­en walls and angled, damped ceil­ings. Most things sound good in the big room, straight off. Vocals are most often record­ed in the live-room. We encour­age you to  exper­i­ment with all the pos­si­bil­i­ties when it comes to micro­phone place­ments. Ambi­ence micro­phones on the stand, in the kitchen or in the upstairs hall can add a lot to your record­ing.

There are a lot of fun and odd instru­ments to col­or your tracks with. Tim­pani, pianos, organs, string machines, synths and more.

You can record to 2″ tape or dig­i­tal. Track live or track-by-track. Work with click or skip it total­ly. The choice is yours. And the choic­es are many.

Many possibilities

The live-room has wood­en walls and angled and damped ceil­ings. The room is not com­plete­ly life­less but not on the res­o­nant side either. Most things sound good in the big room, straight off. Vocals are more often record­ed in the live-room than in the song booths.

Micro­phone place­ments
One thing I hope you take the time to exper­i­ment with is all the pos­si­bil­i­ties when it comes to micro­phone place­ments. Ambi­ence micro­phones on the stand, in the kitchen or in the upstairs hall can add a lot to your record­ing. A nice drum sound is quite pos­si­ble!
