Recording - Mixing - Mastering


Attention-to-detail is our approach for every project.

We have more than 20 years of experience recording all genres of music — however our specialty is recording, mixing and mastering piano, acoustic instruments and voice.

The studio features superb acoustic spaces and equipment including:

  • Schoeps, Neumann, Shure, EV Microphones
  • Millennia, Benchmark & Digidesign Mic Pre's
  • ProTools TDM HD3 DAW
  • Brodmann Acoustics monitors with Perreaux DACs and amplification for critical, reference class listening

For a pianist, nothing compares to playing a real acoustic instrument. Our Steinway Model D is one of the best.

Maintained in excellent condition, this instrument will inspire your creativity and bring out the best in your performance.


Piano Rehearsal


Our Steinway is available for solo piano rehearsal or solo piano plus one other instrument and/or voice.

The piano is also available if you need an undisturbed, quiet, creative space to compose or to play just-for-fun.

Please contact us to make a booking.


MIDI File to Audio Conversion


When a song needs a piano part, using a real acoustic piano will always add richness and depth to the recording.

Of course, sampled piano libraries have come a long way, but they still do not sound as deep and rich as a concert grand piano fully resonating as it responds to the player’s touch and expression.

A barrier to recording acoustic piano is that it’s often an expensive and time consuming process — but not any more!

Our Steinway is fitted with a precision player system which can reproduce all the nuances and dynamics from a sequenced MIDI file.

Just email us your MIDI file, perfected in the comfort of your own creative space, and we’ll send back a professionally recorded audio file at your preferred resolution.

NOTE: The MIDI player system does not interfere with the normal operation of the piano in any way.

Please contact us for more details.
