    Hi all, I'm in the process of setting up a brand new studio. I'll be open sometime in mid august and I'm looking for a few bands/singer songwriters to get the ball rolling. For a limited time I'll be doing a rate of €200 per song. This will include recording, mixing and mastering. This rate is within reason. All bands etc should be well rehearsed and I would typically allocate 1-3 days per song depending on hrs, acts and how well I'm getting on with the band.

    My studio is very high end and I will be typically looking for €400 a day when the studio is up and running. The studio is equipped with a newly acquired MTA Trident desk (the actual desk was used to record Portishead's 1st two albums including "Dummy" and part of PJ Harvey's-"Stories from the City, Stories from the sea album")

    All mics and outboard are class A equipment and there is also an Otari MTR 90 MKII 2" Tape Machine and Apogee converters. I also have a large selection of guitars, amps and effects for hire for sessions too.

    I'm a certified city and guilds engineer and I have working experience in studios in town. If people are genuinely interested and would like to work with me then please PM me. This studio far exceeds the terrible standard of low-mid budget studios in Ireland. I look forward to hearing from you guys. Regards,

  • Registered Users Posts: 368 ✭✭ gagomes

    I've been a sloppy guitar player and studio enthusiast for the last 2-3 years but I've never really got to reach a pro quality in my efforts, mainly because I've never done this full time to the point of fanaticism and most importantly because I used to own less-than-useful gear which in summary was no more than a: pc with onboard soundcard (gotta love 160ms latency!!), pod xt and an Ibanez 7621 guitar with which I recorded this awkward track.

    Since this month that I made an investment of over 3000€ on equipment (after being 1.5yrs without any equipment at all) and now I built a moderate quality home studio for my own recreations. The list of gear that I acquired for my compositions, recordings and experiments is as follows:

    • DELL Optiplex 755.
    • core 2 quad 2.4ghz
    • 8 Gb RAM.
    • Vista x64 Business Edition + Cubase LE / Sonar LE (for the time being, working on acquiring pro versions of this and a few plugin and sample sets, etc)
    • E-mu 0404 USB soundcard.
    • m-audio studiophile BX5a deluxe reference monitor
    • several tongue-in-china headphones
    • Ibanez rg1527 (7 string)
    • POD X3 Live
    • Maxon OD-808
    • ISP Decimator
    • 1spot + daisychain multi5 (with 3 unused plugs...)

    I am interested in sharing this 'bedroom studio' in (D3/Fairview area) with someone who wants to record their own stuff or simply wants to work with someone else to develop and share knowledge and skills. I will also try to mix rock&metal projects for free, in an effort to learn and gain experience from. I have also a project of mine which I will home-record to the point of getting the best possible quality and would appreciate help from someone experienced in recording&tracking (my achiles heel). PM me if interested.

    P.S: All of this material is pretty new, I am, as of this writting, working with factory settings for the most part and haven't started tweaking stuff mainly due to the fact that I am still waiting for the delivery of a desk to put the pc and monitors on. As soon as all that arrives, I will start recording clips and show 'what I can(not) do'
