Babajim Istanbul Studios & Mastering

"Istanbul's Inspiring Urban Oasis"

Babajim Studio A is the flagship recording space of Babajim Istanbul Studios & Mastering. It is specifically designed to inspire musicians' creativity, and to be a playhouse of sonic possibilities for engineers and producers.

The studio's layout is both original and striking. Designed by Roger D'arcy of Recording Architecture, it comprises five isolated rooms spread across two different levels. It is both acoustically and aesthetically brilliant.

The spec is built around a Neve 5088 32 channel analogue console. There is a good choice of quality outboard, and many plug-ins loaded on a Pro Tools HD3 rig. The live room benefits from a beautiful Fazioli Grand Piano and Yamaha drum kit. A large selection of microphones is also at hand.

As one of the very best recording studios in Istanbul, Babajim sits at the forefront of the Turkish music industry. The studio has connections with all of Turkey's best musicians who specialise in many regional genres. Get in touch if you are looking to hire top-standard professional Turkish musicians for your session.
