The core of The Garage Studio is a Solid State Logic SL9000J 56 channels large format custom console with Ultimation® moving faders automation.
The main monitors are Genelec 1034b system with 7073a subwoofer while the nearfields are a pair of KRK V88 biAmp speakers beside a standard Yamaha NS-10 Studio monitors amped with a NAD. A Tivoli Audio Model One is also available for mono checkings.
The DAW recording system is a Pro Tools® 10 HD4 with 192 blue series ADA converters for a total of 32 Ins and 56 analog Outs. A second DAW system used for masters is based on a SoundBlade® Sonic Solution software. This makes possible to print the mix in a standard Hi resolution format (up to 192KHz @24bit stereo) whatever the original PT session frequency and depth is. Both digital systems are clocked by an Antelope Isochrone OCX master clock generator. We have almost all the plug-ins available in commerce, including the Waves Mercury Bundle, Brainworx, FabFilter, Sonnox, Sound Toys, PSP and many more. Two Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad core cards with complete plug-ins bundle are also installed.
Inside the studio, there are two recording rooms, both 25m2, one of which has a beautiful Yamaha C3 and a cozy leather sofa. Besides, some of the rooms of the Villa are used as live recording rooms, especially the main hall, about 50m2, which with its elegant atmosphere provides a unique result both aesthetically and acoustically.
In addition to the Recording and Mixing services, The Garage Studio provides:
The eMixing service gives you the chance to have high quality and analogic songs mixed by a professional recording studio at a convenient price.
The first step is sending us a multitrack audio file of your song, in WAV or AIFF format, by email or uploading it via WeTransfer.
It is advisable to send us some songs' titles from which we could understand the sonority and the influence you would like to get from your final mix.
The first mix you'll receive is exclusively for a first listening so that you can give us a comment or the approval to create the final mix.
At last, you'll receive the final mix, with instrumental and a cappella versions.
