What we offer in and outside our recording studio
With a broad musical taste and experience in many genres, we record virtually everything. From pop/rock/indie/metal, to jazz ensembles, classical music, singer/songwriter, rap and vocalists, to film music and voice over work. The most important thing is that you as an artist or client are feeling at ease with the place and its people. That's why we invite you to meet beforehand for a drink, or have a chat on the phone.
We're big advocates of recording acts in a live setting, including the studio's beloved acoustics and sweet room sound.
Whether you have a clear idea about what you want, or if you're not quite sure yet where your creative ideas should lead to, we're here to work it out. At IJland we're not just audio engineers, but also experienced musicians and music producers who know what it's like to be on the other end of the cable. Our aim is to create a safe environment where we think and feel along with you, with the utmost respect for your ideas, doubts, or insecurities. You'll never be forced in any direction. We work with respect for what is already there, and will always look for the best way to make you and your music flourish, so that it becomes truly yours.
Mixing + Mastering
Wether it's recorded in our studio, a homestudio or anywhere else, our engineers will mix your songs to your liking, at any given time or deadline.
After our 2017 refurb, we now also have a linear response acoustically treated mastering studio.
Writing | Pre-Production | Rehearsal
IJland Studio is a great place for writing, trying things out with the many instruments we have, pre-production and rehearsals. Special deals are available in combination with recording sessions upon request.
Recording On Location
We love the acoustics, location and vibes of our studio, but we're also keen to record in different special locations.
Voice over and podcast
Our dead quiet iso-booth is perfect for voice overs of any kind. When working from a remote location with a client, a solid high speed fibre internet connection enables you to be in direct contact, or to record remotely from our studio into yours from around the world.
Our homely, sound proof live room provides the ideal location for recording a podcast with multiple people.
Experience and know how is a must. When available, we will make your act sound solid in about any location. Examples of cliënts we've worked for:
And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead | Caesar | Canshaker Pi | The Cribs | The Grand East | Mogwai | Palace Brothers (Bonnie "Prince" Billy) | Pavement | Silver Jews | Spiral Stairs | Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks | St. Tropez | zZz
