Originally, some 20 years ago, we were a mastering and recording studio based in the old facilities of Radio Belgium. Many of our team members are audio professionals and recording engineers. We support everything from direct-cut recording discs and vinyls over multi-track recording tapes to DAT and many other tape formats. If you have odd formats which you do not find in the list below, please contact us directly and we are happy to give you a quote for an individual project.
