SERVICES

 

MASTERING


In the Box, Out of the Box, Hybrid, Stem Mastering Option Zoom attendance optional extra.
Mastering is offered by Luke on club-based music. The music will be bought up to a level Luke uses for his own productions whilst keeping the dynamic quality exemplify. We offer two resulting files for each track, standard. Where the result is not pushed to the extreme in loudness terms. Then an additional version that is pushed to a level for playing in clubs and big venues. You may choose from in the box mastering and analogue mastering for the session beforehand. Or a mix of the two (Hybrid). Mastering Music away from the club scene is headed up by Sie with the same options.




MIXING


Mixing Services - In the Box, Out of the Box, Hybrid Options.
Zoom attendance optional extra.
Sie heads up the mixing duties and offers his extensive experience, having mixed records over his career for the likes of Björk, Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Goldie and Unkle to name a few. The Spacestation is flexible and set up for both analogue and in the box mixing as required. The Spacestation includes 4 sets of monitors using Barefoot MM12’s as the main monitors and Trinnovs Speaker correction system to ensure exact results. Head to the gear list here.




PROCESSING


Processing Services - Run your stems through the outboard.
Zoom attendance optional extra.
The Spacestation hosts such a suite of analogue and software equipment we have decided that an interesting option would be to offer the chance to have your track run through a piece of analogue gear of your choice. Whether you would like your track or stem, recorded to a studer a80 quarter-inch tape machine or run through the analogue solution colossus circuits or even a mini moog. There are many creative offerings and possibilities to process. Just have a look at the inventory list to whet your appetite.




SOUND AND SAMPLE REPLACEMENT


Replace your plugins! Send us your midi files and we can play them back through an array of monster synths, samplers and drum machines of your choosing. Recorded down, bounced and sent back as WAV/ AIFF. Outboard treatment options are available. The Spacestation has a suite of classic samplers, many are now known and used as a way to process breaks and samples, usually to degrade the bit rate to Lofi. Coupled with their original circuitry the result is something hard to create with software. See the list of samplers. A lot of the classic equipment in the studio is vintage, some around 40 years old and is kept continually serviced to keep them at original standards with original parameters. Luke admits to being obsessive about having the machines working as they should be.
