Recording Studio Melbourne

Oaklands Recording Studios Australia offers a wide range of services from simple band demos right up to full surround sound mixes for motion picture and television. We have a number of studios catering to a wide variety of requirements. Oaklands offers four control rooms and seven recording spaces.

Clients have the option to mix fully in the digital domain within the Pro Tools HD3 Accel computer software utilising our control surfaces or to come “out-of-the-box’ and mix back through the sweet sounding Harrison Series10 analogue desk and racks of outboard gear. The Harrison Series10 offers 128 channels of pristine analogue signal processing with four band parametric EQ, two filters, compressor, gate and endless routing possibilities on every channel. It features full dynamic automation with flying faders. This gives the amazing sound only a large format analogue console can offer as well as the flexibility of full automation and recall settings.

The studio has facility to record up to 96 tracks at once and can play back up to 256 tracks simultaneously. The mix can be automated and edited using the available control surfaces with motorised moving faders.

Another advantage of the studio is its comprehensive microphone and outboard list.
