Recording

Our digital recording studio (70 sq. m.) is perfectly suited for live music recordings of Jazz and Chamber Music. In addition, we offer a large selection of instruments, including a Yamaha Grand Piano C6. Our Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) is based on a dedicated high-end multi-CPU system running Steinberg Nuendo.

Mixing

The mixing process consists of taking individual instrument and vocal tracks and combining them to form a professional-sounding end-product using volume, EQ, compression, effects and automation to create excitement.

Mastering

Audio mastering is one of the most important and often overlooked steps in audio engineering. It's the final stage before an album or single is released to the public. Individual tracks must work well together when played one after another in an album sequence or in random album order.
