Studio 2

At roughly 113 m2 (1215 sq. ft.), it’s a more intimate space than Studio1. The perfect room for bands recordings.

The band’s home

We went to great lengths to preserve the age-old acoustic, even lifting the existing structure to build a new foundation underneath it. At roughly 113 m2 (1215 sq. ft.), it’s a more intimate space than Studio1. The flexible architecture features an open drum booth and movable walls which allow the room to be subdivided into three separate spaces, providing good acoustic isolation while allowing all-important eye contact between musicians.

The control room is identical to Studio 1 in terms of the outstanding Jochen Veith acoustics and custom PMC monitoring, but Studio 2 features a custom API Vision mixing desk, originally developed years ago in collaboration with our team. This fully-discrete analog console allows for simultaneous mixing in both stereo and surround, helping you save time and money. For those looking to go “old school,” a choice of analog tape machines is available for tracking and printing. As in Studio 1, the unique docking “garage” system for outboard gear allows for great flexibility in choices for signal processing. Check out what’s available in our outboard gear inventory, let us know your favorites, and we’ll get you started.
