Studio "A"

…a three room suite plus a control room with a cozy atmosphere and a (mostly) analog workflow.

Comfort & Isolation

Drum or Amplifier Recording for Home Studios

Recording Single or Multiple Performers

Pre Production (live demo tracking/re-working)

Post Production (Editing, Mixing, Mastering)

Studio "A"

…is a four room┬árecording studio┬áin Edmonton that is dynamic, cozy, and priced specifically to help your budget. The space feels like home without the distractions, and it’s able to handle just about anything you can think of with three dedicated tracking rooms, one beautiful sounding control room, and selection of equipment that is beneficial to your recording.

A (mostly) Analog Workflow

If analog is your thing, Studio “A” is equiped to handle your entire session with outboard EQs from API & Neve, compressors from DBX & Purple, and our 48 channel Soundcraft console.

Microphone Collection

From classics like our old Neumann U87i, to a modern gem like our Cathedral Pipes’ Notre Dame, you’ll find the right match for what you’re recording. See below for more details.

Setup & Ready for You

Pro Tools, CuBase, Studio One and more are loaded on the studio’s Mac Pro with plenty of horse-power for every session. Also loaded are plugins from Universal Audio, Waves, Izotope and more.

The Digital Advantage

Don’t want to learn a new system? Connect to the studio through our Antelope Orion and it’s rock-solid USB drivers for 32 channels of high quality i/o.

The Right Price for Your Budget

Your recording shouldn’t come down to price, so we brought the price down for you.
