STUDIO

STUDIO ZX

The heart of the Sound Machine operation. The studio caters to all aspects of sound, from rehearsals, pre-production, tracking, mixing, mastering and post production - Studio ZX is your once stop shop.
 

The control room (4m x 3.5 x 3m) has been acoustically treated and soundproofed to ensure an accurate representation of sound. Architecturally designed, it provides a positive and creative work environment whilst all the while emanating a great vibe for all involved.

The live room (6m x 5 x 3m) has a warm, spacious vibe to it that can accommodate various instruments' timbral qualities. The room is sonically interchangeable via moveable baffles and diffusers scattered throughout the place.
 

The kitchen/lounge (5.5m x 4 x 3.5m) is a great place to relax, jam out on the honky tonk piano or even record with separate tie lines easily accessible. With tiled floors and hard surfaced walls it's a great area to encapsulate some extra 'lively-ness' in your recording.
 

If you're looking for even a bit more natural reverb and decay, then the warehouse (30m x 25 x 10m) is just outside the kitchen door with full tie lines accessible. Setup a drum kit or guitar amp and watch the player’s eyes light up when they hear it back!
