Services

Recording

In order to ensure an efficient capture of various sound sources, we offer a wide range of pre- amplifiers and microphones (dynamic, condenser, ribbon). We only use pro equipment and guarantee a perfect audio recording.

Mix

We process the recorded tracks with great care and apply an analog or a digital treatment based on your needs.

Mastering

To achieve an impeccable result, we apply an analog or digital treatment to your mix, whether it’s destined for physical duplication or internet broadcasting.

Production

We offer creative and artistic guidance to anyone who wants to develop a project, be it a single, an EP or a full album. Our passion for music is at the heart of everything we do.
