High-end audio services, give to your music the chance to sounds better...

Studio

Located near Geneva, Strob Studio offers high-end services, such as mixing and mastering. The studio is made of a high end control room that meets the quality criteria of the best studios currently listed.
The architecture, design and acoustics of the studio were developed by renowned German acoustician "Jochen Veith", who has been in the business of developing and building recording studios for more than 20 years.

The control room is a real isolated bunker, the superb acoustics in the room as well as its incredibly low background noise (25 db SPL), results in one of the greatest mastering environment you can imagine.

For monitoring, we opted for a pair of ATC SCM 110 ASL Pro, with two ATC SCM 1-15 ASL subwoofers (15 inches), in a soffit mounted fashion. This results in a high performances and extremely critical listening.

PAGE SERVICE / MIXDOWN

WHAT IS A MIXDOWN ?
Music mixing is the process of taking multi tracks and 'mixing' it down to one single stereo track (left and right). As a result, you will have one stereo file.

So why is mixing so important? Because of what happens during the mixing process. We do much more than just 'combine' the tracks. You see mixing is all about context, the way individual elements of the arrangement behave, sound and feel relative to each other, and how that affects the overall experience of the listener.

This process requires great technical skills, expensive equipment, fine musical taste and lots of experience.
