The Magic of Analogue Tape

Our Studer A807 recorder is ready to reacord your song for a Vinyl release without going into the digital domain.

Find out more info on this amazing tape machine.


As the engineer behind Nirvana and the Pixies puts it:

" Today's digital recordings will be unplayable in the future. "I feel it would be irresponsible to give my clients digital files as their permanent masters, knowing they would eventually disappear or become unusable, so I won't do it. Some of the bands I work with don't appreciate the difference, or take seriously the notion that music should outlive the people who make it, and I understand that." Still, Albini feels that analog tape offers the best chance for recordings to survive. I agree, and analog tape can be used to create great sounding high-definition digital masters. That's not true of the vast majority of recordings that are being made today; most are limited to 96-kHz/24-bit digital.

..there will always be work for engineers who can do a good job, because there will always be people who appreciate good sound. "

Find us also on AudioHunt (a great link about tape magic)

The records we love from the 30's until the turn of the 21st century had one thing in common soundwise

They were all mastered to.. 1/4" 2-track stereo, 15ips, NAB equalization (at least in the U.S.) on a reel to reel pro-recorder.


This is partly why we master and record sound onto RMG M911 1/4" Master tape after using a range of valve analog equipment to refine the sound and bring out the subtle harmonics usually hidden for the average listener thanks to amazing world class monitoring.

So why don't you bring some tape and come make some pieces of not just history but 'your' story!

We store brand new tape, but even get a roll before you come and rock: here is a source - European SM911 Tape 1/4" Dealer

It's probably the best thing you can do for your music since the day computers were invented..


The tape master acts as a final glue for your mixes and no extra noise is added thanks to the valuable Dolby HX Pro circuitry--an anti-distortion for high freq. mode built into the A807, the last tape recorder from Studer, that benefited from over 50 years of analogue research and engineering.

We can also re-master your original 1/4" master tapes(s) into a digital file of the highest quality, using the stereo converters and clock from our Metric Halo ULN2s.

The Swiss precision of the Studer A807 is fed into one of two top-of-range studio-grade analogue to digital converters which capture every detail needed to reproduce the magic of your master tape - no need for an atomic clock, a trained pair of ears and some experience of the way records were made during the last 30 years helps to achieve good results. We aim to keep the 'magic' from the tape and bring it into the digital world.

Our choice of equipment and attention to detail in creating digital files are as painstaking as those in our analogue mastering process. In each case, we convert directly from our refurbished master tape copy into each format separately, never compressing from one format to another. No computers are used in the process; each file is created entirely ‘natively’.

Conversion from analogue to digital is therefore pure and direct, with none of the compression typically involved in the mass-production of digital music.

 Read what Steve Albini has to say on the subject.

Our Main Space is an acoustically treated control room with a nice fire stove and welcoming vibes.

There is an adjacent recording room in which you can achieve a great acoustic separation thanks to a 1m thick stone wall. A couple of other rooms can host horns or vocalists.

Our studio also offers multi-track recording in a place you choose, from your living room to a stage, a forest, a chalet, on a rooftop like Joy Division, we can record you just about anywhere..

Also without moving from the studio, you can sit by the fireplace, close your eyes and we'll setup a classic microphone with some great headphones (Beyer DT770 Pro)..

Hear your voice/instrument and let us take you to any space you want to sing in and create YOUR SOUND around that SPACE with a Lexicon Reverb bought from a Nashville Recording Studio and the completely analogue 'valve' signal path.

1 Neumann U47 FET (read about it here Sound On Sound Article)

The list of renowned artists who have created musical masterpieces with the sound of the U 47 fet – including AC/DC, Kate Bush, Bruce Springsteen, and later R.E.M, the Pretenders, a-ha, Dire Straits, Metallica, Michael Bublé and many others ..

One of its particular strengths was an ability to cope with extremely high sound-pressure levels — up to 147dB SPL with the 10dB pad switched in (for comparison, the original U47 was getting pretty crunchy by 120dB SPL). The FET 47’s high SPL-handling capability quickly made it a firm favourite for capturing kick drums, bass instruments, guitar amps, brass and many other demanding instrumental applications. Although never as popular as a vocal mic as the original U47 — it sounds a little more ‘closed–in’ and flat than the original 47 (which has a much broader 5dB presence boost) — the FET 47 was still quite usable in this role too, particularly for male vocals and speech. Its modest 2dB of presence boost between about 2 and 5 kHz is enough to aid clarity and intelligibility in a mix, while the gentle proximity boost adds a degree of body and warmth.

Bruce Swedien (r.) with Wolfgang Fraissinet (President of Neumann)

For decades, legendary recording engineer and producer Bruce Swedien has been an enthusiastic fan of the U 47 fet. One of the many highlights of his career was recording and mixing the Thriller album with Michael Jackson in the year 1982. Duke Ellington, Quincy Jones, Natalie Cole, Diana Ross, Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand are only a few of many other stars with whom he has worked. He has been nominated for a Grammy award 13 times, and has been a Grammy winner five times.

In his book Make Mine Music, he wrote about the U 47 fet: “My personal favorite of this series (Neumann fet 80) is the U 47 FET. I have two U 47 FETs, very close in sequence numbers, that sound simply fabulous! I absolutely treasure these lovely mikes.”

In 2005, in the Music Player Network Internet forum, he wrote: “The U-47 fet is one of the best sounding Neumann condenser mikes! It is vastly underrated by the industry! I absolutely love mine” and “The U-47 fet is a wonderful vocal mike! A nice and very useful amount of proximity effect. Great for thin voices. The great thing about using the U47 fet on acoustic guitar is also the proximity effect on some guitars ...

New! our Profile on soundBetter. Also visible on AudioHunt, we offer select services such as re-amping, ASP and mastering using a range of equipment.  Check the menu.

As monitors, we use Genelec 1030A speakers and Tannoy Precision monitors that go up to 50000Hz, we care for this because a signal’s higher harmonics can matter especially to create a tangible stereo perception.
Rupert Neve talks about the body being unable to relax when the HF content is cutoff beyond 20KHz so we respect the sound well beyond the perceived human hearing range..


Mastering is an Artform, requiring creativity and tools as the making of the music does, but with the aim to always imagine what the Artist wants the outcome to sound like in his mind.

We can master your song to 1/4inch at 15ips Mastering tape using a Studer A-807 through our outboard and then export to digital, this way you can keep a master tape reference for further format conversion (no dithering or other sound problems)

Final CD/WAV mastering is done with SonicStudio SoundBlade HD on Mac Pro. A Benchmark Digital Audio Workstation For Mastering, Restoration, Recording & Mixing. • Sonic Studio Engine (SSE) is trusted by mastering engineers worldwide for its transparent sound.

The digital domain is looked after by two Metric Halo ULN-2 Interface +DSP which allow extremely accurate capture and reproduction of sound, which matters when you leave the digital domain to go thru to analogue and back to the computer. Our analogue mastering service combines treatment with the legendary Fairman TSC Opto Valve Stereo Compressor/Limiter, two linked Legendary NEVE 2254/R Compressor/Limiter and Sonnox/Pulteq Eq (Software), Lexicon Mastering Tools as well as the Metric Halo +DSP tools such as M/S and Parallel Compression.

As a Label, we can also release or help your distribute your music yourself on various platforms (eg: itunes, bandcamp, youtube..).

As part of the Mastering we can add your work to our online label and create your Custom ISRC code with our SCPP/IFPI membership and insert it into your MASTER. This way your music will be trackable online and you can then get paid when your song/video gets played on all the platforms.

As long as we’re not too busy, we will be happy to do a test master of one of your tracks to show you what we can do for your music.

Should I Attend The Mastering Session

Having the artist attend the session can often be useful for both parties, and make for effective and fast communication. However, it is not absolutely essential that the artist attends the session and it is commonplace that mastering sessions and communications are dealt with via FTP (file transfer protocol) and email/telephone respectively.

As mentioned, it is not essential that artist attends the mastering session. There are certain things that should be provided to the mastering engineer, however:

This is the song order of your album. There are many possible orders and this should be decided and given to the mastering engineer before the session.

 – any questions and concerns you may have. For example, perhaps you feel one song is too quiet, or the vocal is not quite bright enough, or you want a warm and darker master. Let the mastering engineer know this, as he will otherwise take lead from what he is hearing and assume that it is the creative intention of the artist and producer.
