There are so many ways in which we can work on your music, record it live in a room at any location, record each instrument indivuduallly, and everything in between. Get in touch and we can talk about what suits your music, playing style and the sound you are going for, and together we can do our best to get to what you hear in your head onto a recording. We’re really flexible in our approach here, so let’s talk!

Past projects include songs that have charted; punk, rock, death & black metal and reggae bands; hip-hop, rap, grime, etc. vocalists; pop songs with integrity and innovation. Weve worked on events in The Queens Hall, Edinburgh Fringe, Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh Art College, Liquid Rooms, Surgeon’s Hall and Summerhall. 

We’ve worked with: BBC, Disney, Pixar, Alcatrazz, Blumhouse, Cartoon Network, Vodafone, Universal, Hachette Book Group & Orbit, Glenmorangie Whisky.

All types of audio genres are welcome, vocals ranging from informative, factual-based adjusted voice overs to emotionally charged character acting and the conveying of life changing ideas and thoughts, and pushing your musicianship or voice to it’s full potential if appropriate.


Take home a multi-channel recording of your band practice. If you need high quality recordings of your practice session to use as a demo or to get gigs, this for you. The session can take place wherever you usually practice (or we can recommend a venue if required). Mixing and mastering is an optional extra, but can take your sound to the next level.
