We can complete your project through initial recording, overdubs, mixing and final mastering for you release format (CD, vinyl or digital download), with an efficient and cost-effective workflow, all in a comfortable and friendly environment.
We record on both digital and analogue! You can go digital using iZ’s state-of-the-art Nyquist converters, giving the sweetest sound combined with Pro Tools HD convenience, or experience the traditional analogue-tape warmth of our Saturn 2-inch 24-track. We can also bounce digital recordings to tape and back, offering the best of both worlds. We’re happy to discuss your project to help you decide which method is the most suitable for you.
In addition to recording, we offer specialist audio tape transfer and restoration services. We can optimally digitise most analogue reel to reel tapes, in almost all stereo and multitrack formats, to 24-bit WAV files. All our tape decks are perfectly maintained and our devotion to ‘tweaking’ adjustments to achieve the best possible sound is second to none. Tape ‘baking’ is available to cure ‘sticky tape syndrome’ – chemical decay suffered by most tapes over time, even in perfect storage conditions.
Specialist restoration, using both hardware and software, can eliminate or significantly improve many problems such as tape hiss, hum, clicks and distortion.
We also offer technical assistance with many audio-related technical issues, for example electric guitar ‘screening’, equipment repair, studio installation and custom cable assembly.
