Alchemy Studio was built to record bands! 3 isolation rooms plus a spacious control room make it easy to accomodate single performers to large groups. Every instrument can be isolated in it's own room, making it easy to correct mistakes and perfect your tracks while still playing together.
Alchemy is a large 4 room studio with 22 x 18 control room, 12 x 18 drum room, 10 x 8 vocal isolation room and amp isolation room. World class mics and pre-amps. Ideal for Bands and Groups, with plenty of space in the control room, and isolation for all instruments.

Alchemy Control Room
The floating hardwood floor is constructed of maple, cherry, walnut and teak, utilizing the sonic properties of each wood in specific areas of the studio to enhance the audio properties of the room design. The studio also has a variety of monitoring options including JBL - LSR - 4328's, a bi-amped JBL system, a 2.1 system, a set of small speakers and various headphone feeds.
The Alchemy control room is treated with acoustic diffusers and absorbers that you can see in the shot above. To the right you can see the built-in bass traps along the back wall ( like the drum room)
These panels absorb bass energy and reflect high-end frequencies to help the accuracy of the main room. JBL - LSR - 4328's, are the main reference monitors. There is also a bi-amped JBL system for tracking and a 2.1 system in the lounge.
Alchemy Studio is a local favourite for tracking live off the floor with complete isolation! I built this space specifically to record bands and groups.
The whole group may play together in the same room ( with the exception of the drummer )- with out wearing headphones. All the amps and drums are in their own rooms, isolated from each other.
This makes it really easy to fix tracks afterwords, even with the drums. Usually, it's not a problem to replace a roll or fill - or even just one beat. This is true for all the instrument tracks, if you make a mistake, it's usually not hard to fix.
Choose to use the Alchemy gear or bring your own
Alchemy Recording Studio comes with an impressive list of equipement including drums, guitars and other instruments, preamps and microphones etc. See more on the pages below.
Tracking and Recording - Created for bands and musicians, Alchemy studio features 4 rooms and an outstanding selection of gear and instruments.
We can record up to 32 tracks of 24 bit audio at once. I usually use 12 - 14 tracks for drums and 8- 10 tracks for the rest of the band. You can record live off the floor and use these tracks, fix these tracks, double or triple the bed tracks, or replace them completely with a new track.
