At Quasar Sound Studio we specialise in analogue recording on quarter-inch magnetic tape. Our recording procedure is reminiscent of the productions made in studios of the 1950s and ‘60s.
We are committed to live, studio recordings, allowing the musicians to do their thing so that we may capture the very best performance and sound. Overdubbing may be used if necessary.
We believe in monophonic reproduction of sound and the final test of any recording is in the listening – we invite musicians to compare the sound of Quasar’s live mono reproductions.
We provide services for solo artists and groups who want to record a demo, music video, an LP, EP or single. From there we can release the finished product on vinyl (45rpm & 331/3 rpm), or CD – via the Quasar Record label.
At Quasar we use long-standing technologies and techniques to achieve the very best Hi-Fidelity recordings. It is these techniques that give artists the opportunity to perform together at their very best, in a live setting.
We have a single room studio ideal for acoustic and electric recordings and a control / mastering room with excellent monitoring and facilities for analogue and digital productions. We use high quality, well maintained 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s vintage equipment. To capture the ultimate Hi-Fidelity recordings we use a variety of RCA and Neumann microphones, a Tascam M-15B mixing desk as well as Rola and Ampex magnetic tape recorders. Our piano is an early 20th century, refurbished ‘Julius Feurich’. A beautiful German classic with rich, warm tones.
