The O.A.P. Studio is acoustically designed for perfect interplay between the musici and to capture the unique bandsound in the most natural form. A good musical balance between the instruments plays a major role. Typically, therefore, the recording is done in one room. In this case it is important that all musicians play perfectly in balance with the right dynamics, ajust to the recording room. This will help to make a high quality recording. It is also possible to record vocalists separately in a vocalbooth and instrumentalists in a separate space where 'cross-talk' is minimized.
The recording room is suitable for small ensembles and combos. The recording room is equipped with an excellent Steinway B grand piano and high-end recording equipment. The projects that will be recorded in this studio are usually (jazz)combo's, (classical)ensembles, acoustic music and soloists.
Recordings made in this studio you can hear at the catalog page.
