THE GARAGE Studio is located in Arezzo, right in the heart of the Chianti country, just a 40 minute drive from Florence.
In addition to being a State-of-the-Art recording studio, our property also has two historical, country houses with eight comfortable, well-appointed bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom which can accommodate up to sixteen guests.
We also have three media rooms, a reading room, a billiard room and patios.
The twenty-five acre garden has a large swimming pool. The atmosphere, the colors and the perfumes here are natural creativity boosters which help make THE GARAGE Studio experience unique, addictive and unforgettable.
The core of The GARAGE STUDIO is a beautiful Solid State Logic SL9000J 56 channels large format custom console with Ultimation® moving faders automation. It is unnecessary to describe how this beauty sounds, it is enough to mention that most the top international Hits are mixed on it. The main monitors are Genelec 1034b system with 7073a subwoofer while the nearfields are a pair of KRK V88 biAmp speakers beside a standard Yamaha NS-10 Studio monitors amped with a NAD. A Tivoli Audio Model One is also available for mono checkings. The DAW recording system is a Pro Tools® 10 HD4 with 192 blue series ADA converters for a total of 32 Ins and 56 analog Outs. A second DAW system used for masters is based on a SoundBlade® Sonic Solution software. This makes possible to print the mix in a standard Hi resolution format (up to 192KHz @24bit stereo) whatever the original PT session frequency and depth is. Both digital systems are clocked by an Antelope Isochrone OCX masterclock generator. We have almost all the plug-ins available in commerce, including the Waves Mercury Bundle, Brainworx, FabFilter, Sonnox, Sound Toys, PSP and many more. Two Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad core cards with complete plug-ins bundle are also installed.
So, we provide an high level equipped studio in an incredible environment.
The fee shown comprises studio session with one of our sound-engineer, and rooms and board for two people. In case of more than 2 people, price slightly increases.
