Swiss Vintage Studio features an impressive array of vintage gears and synthesizers ranging from the 1960’s to 2020. It is a small facility of approximately 100m2 including 30m2 specifically focused onto the gears.

More than 160 gears, all operational and in perfect condition, are interconnected to the main consoles and DAW and represent a huge analog infrastructure, the latter being interfaced to 2 MIDAS 32 Units as well as to 8 UNIVERSAL AUDIO Interfaces.

Years of pure history

A UNIQUE PLACE

Check our equipment list and production to listen to the variety of sounds and flavors You can expect from such a packed musical environment.

We also have access to the music industry playgrounds, ranging from the labels to the manufacturers and stages in Switzerland and abroad.

LIKE TO RECORD Real physical gears ?

If you are willing to record real physical gears, you want to get rid of any distorsion, noise and interference. This therefore implies absolutely no input signal modification is applied to any gear before being recorded / sampled into the DAW.

All treatments are processed once operating and recording from within the DAW thanks to the full collection of professional plugins from Universal Audio(TM) and other Vendors as well as all the available outboard equipment on site.

We also have the ability to rent or even buy specific signal processors, consoles, speakers, guitars, microphones etc. from the relevant top distributors in Switzerland and Worldwide whenever required for specific needs.

Nevertheless, the affected internal and external teams have a tremendous amount of KNOWLEDGE which should match and satisfy most of your expectations on location. If you therefore need external engineers and / or equipment, we either have them or have a direct access to them.

RECORDING

It’s a true paradigm per se !

No need to tell you about the logics behind what we do here as you’d naturally have understood that « integration » is the master word in what we do thoroughly. We have all what is needed to achieve excellent results whatever the music style of yours. If you wish it to sound the way the industry does it, no problem once again.

Though the facility is of a humble size (30 square meters for the studio itself, 100 square meters for the accommodation during the working sessions), the studio is literally packed with real genuine physical and logical systems and engineering possibilities.

On top of all the DAW collection of plugins from various world class editors and the external outboard gears we either have on location or have access to, check the gears list out… Why? Simply because most of all the gears on location have the ability to be used to reprocess part or the whole of your files, bounces, mixes or even masters… The most ancient one dates back from the mid 60’s… and works perfectly well! 

Your sound can therefore be truly unique whilst fully compatible with the industry standards at whatever stage during the creation process! As we said in preamble, it is a true paradigm per se!!!
