Studio 1 is located in Willow Acres, Pretoria, right next to the Silver Lakes golf estate and country club, with quick and easy access from the N4 highway, as well as Hans Strydom Drive or Lynnwood Drive.  It consists of a very comfortable, yet very cosy control room, where the clients can put their feet up and enjoy the process of creating their art. It includes a recording booth that is large enough to easily fit a drum kit, a percussion set, a small acapella group, vocals and any other acoustic instruments that need to be recorded.

The recording hardware includes a 24-in, 24-out system (yes, you're reading correctly:  we can handle 24 live inputs simultaneously, enough for most live bands, with 10 stereo headphone returns for monitoring), a combination of vocal, drum and other instrument microphones, two controller keyboards, one for recording various keys/pads etc, and one with weighted keys for pianists.  As you could imagine, all the software required to record and drive this system is installed, running smoothly and ready to rock.  A set of Behriger Truth studio monitors tops off the system for playback, mixing and mastering.
