Our studio is based in the South of the Netherlands and consists out of two rooms. The ground floor room serves as a reference room and is fitted with various playback equipment and monitors for referencing draft recordings. It also has a kitchen and a sitting area.

The basement room serves as the main studio room and is equipped with a combination of digital and analogue recording equipment. We record music using a combination of outboard gear and plugins running via our Mac Pro.

Besides the main Mac console we also have a second PC for mastering purposes, with a second set of monitors and Steinberg Wavelab in combination with various plug-ins for mastering, including Waves, Oxford and SPL.
