|`||Blackstar Music Recording and Rehearsal Studio|
We work with analogue, digital, or a combination of both recording mediums. Final mixes can be delivered on CD, DAT, regular cassette, or on any of the mediums we work with.
In the live room we have a 1929 Knabe Baby Grand, a Hammond organ with full pedals and a Leslie cabinet, a drum kit, bass rig and a selection of Fender amps. There is a nice selection of microphones and some premium mic pre's. By using gobos, multi-tracking, mic selection and mic placement, the absence of designated isolation booths hasn't been a problem.
