Studio A

Big airy spaces, perfect for big drums, rock bands and acoustic music. Sweet analogue sounds in classic outboards combined with the power of the digital domain.
In august 2010 we installed our 48 channel Neve VR Legend console with dynamics, flying faders andtotal recall. All channels recapped in 2014 with great help from Neil McCombie.
In combination with skilled producers, a wide variety of classic microphones, outboards, instruments and plenty of
space to work and relax makes this one of the top studio locations in Scandinavia.
