Studio Concrete is a recording studio located in Montreal’s East end.  The Studio is equipped to record up 24 channels at one time with a 900 square foot live room and a 12 square foot iso booth. This makes it an ideal space for all recording situation from Foley, ADR sessions to tracking large ensembles. Our collection of audio gear and extensive mic locker also make it an excellent place to record over dubs or mix your track for that added bit of “album magic”.  

Studio Control Room      Studio Control Room 3

Studio Monitors and Control Room:
The control room is set up for live tracking as well as all post production editing needs. The Room was designed specifically with our pair of Westlake BBSM10 speakers in mind. They are powered by an Australian Monitor amp. The frequency response and other information on these speakers can be found in the link just below. The speakers are calibrated for the control room and give an honest and accurate assessment of the mix that will translate to other listening spaces.
