AP Studios, Our Services

The most important step in making a record in our opinion is the recording process. Highly overlooked today, this task is the first and most important stage of a production. Many people feel that everything can be fixed at mixing and mastering stage, in part that's true but in reality there is not processor or computer wizard that can cover up a bad recording. Definitely the sound can be improved later but a badly tuned drum kit recorded in a badly tuned room with 8 mics will never sound as good as a properly tuned drum kit recorded in a great room with only 3 mics, at any stage. We strive to getting things right at the first step which is the key to obtaining quality finished products. We achieve this through combining the knowledge and experience of our engineers and acousticians with our great equipment and room acoustics

We record most of bands playing live all in the same room which creates a sound that has more vibe and depth as opposed to a more congested sound created when layering. The most common comment we receive after a band has finished tracking their first song in the studio is "wow that sounds as if it's already mixed and finished". Here at A.P. Studios we created an environment that encourages creativity and innovation in every project from classical music to heavy metal.
