Studio A

  • Studio A. 

    The majority of Audio Culture’s recording sessions gets booked at Scherzo Production’s Studio A. 

    Studio A is centered around the 7m x 3m x 5m live room, acoustically designed to be controlled but still lively, as well as completely isolated, easily being able to track a 4 piece band with up to 100% separation. 

    Studio A’s control room is designed to have the flattest frequency response possible, with monitoring to give the most accurate representation of a mix, as well as making it effortless to patch a large selection of analog outboard gear.
