STUDIO RECORDING

Black Cave Recordings can take bands to record at s9fifty studio in Glenrothes for all or part of a recording project. This can be part of the location recording package, so you can record certain elements in the studio, and others at the Black Cave home recording studio or at a location of your choosing, cutting overall costs for your project.

The studio has a large live room, where anything from drums to a full band can be recorded, and the vocal booth allows for tracking vocals in comfort, and its design results in pristine sounding recordings. The control room has a great sounding layout where musicians can track instruments comfortably, and with a separate kitchen and green room, bands can enjoy their recording experience.

  • Record in a high quality recording studio
  • Experiment with sounds and microphone placement
  • Track as many parts of your project in the studio
  • Leave parts to be recorded at a location of your choosing
