Welcome to the Ariege,

A place where the city's noise pollution is no longer a problem, sit down, relax, breathe and get ready to create with a professional engineer/producer by your side.. let's make wonders together..


You can find the studio near St Girons, just over an hour away from Toulouse Airport and City Centre. A few hours drive from Marseilles, Montpellier, Madrid or Barcelona and six hours from Paris.

Near the studio, you have access to Andorra (1h30), Guzet Neige ski resort (30mn), Massat, Seix, Oust and the surrounding rivers, lakes and mountains..

An album full of Summer vibes and Winter warmth..

Not to be confused with the TMC, the TSC uses optical gain control and has 4 tubes for gain staging and amplification. This makes it very flexible and can be made to sound clean or warm and remain gentle either way. It's fast, certainly mastering grade and can be ordered with Elma gold switches (which I like a lot).

The Fairman TSC Tube Stereo Compressor is a very high quality and warm sounding Tube Amplifier, were the gain is controlled by the light-sensitive input potentiometer.

The circuit design is based upon an LED illuminated high-speed resistor. This light-sensitive resistor is in fact part of an optical controlled potentiometer rather than a VCA. The result is absence of any distortion in the gain-controlling device at any compressor/limiter level. The Tube amplifier does not change gain, and therefor does not change Sound during compression. Compare it to as the compressors “moving Fader”.

The unique developed detection circuit delivers a clean and very fast control voltage to the optical device. This avoids the often seen problem of many comps, where the compressed low frequencies are “modulated”, especially when fast attack and release times are used. The benefit therefor is the extremely high linearity and thigh sound also at the lowest compressed frequencies.

Besides being a Compressor, the Fairman TSC is also a very high quality Tube Amplifier recommended as Recording Input Amplifier.

With its gain range of +/- 15 dB and when the Threshold is set at zero, the Fairman TSC provides the Level Adjustment Facility for many different analog sources before going on track. The Fairman TSC will also with excellent result “Warm Up” on all ready-recorded material.

Following a memorable night in aid of Syrian Refugees in France and beyond, the Volvestre Collective presented no less than 20 Artists from everywhere, who filled the room with warm and generous sound gifts. The public was great and gave plenty (the bar profits went to the cause!) Thanks again to everyone involved in this surprise.
The improvisational piece below is a one-man live composition using nearly 200 tuned strings and a handful of cymbals. A cultural attempt to harmonise east and west, where two Persian santoors tuned in two complementary but different scales. Reflecting both points of a journey through space and time.
A mandolin, a 12 string guitar and two acoustic guitars are used to bridge the scales of the lead santoors into a conversation, add cymbals and ornaments crashes and beats to symbolise the accidents on the path of exile.
A gift to go with the sounds a Persian Sufi poem..
Currently show in Orkney and Hong-Kong next month

With Choreographer Julia Griffin and SoundBringer
This work was filmed in Stockport, Reddish Vale. Where the question of a dialogue with the industrial landscape and the rhythm that is sometimes not in sync with the dancers movement, but that is also part of the dialogue between the video artist Kristín Scheving and the Choreographer Julia Griffin (UK) and then later with sound artist SoundBringer (FR), how do we communicate?
