Okay, let’s get the important bit out of the way first. In my opinion, this studio is world class. The recordings I did with these guys back in 2002-3 got my band festival gigs in Europe. I got us interviews on the BBC in England and have garnered us a series of really strong reviews, both on the web and in print. One of those songs was even used as the inaugural, opening track for a new radio station in the UK. (How often does that happen?). I’ve worked in a number of other studios and with other producers, but ten years on, I still go back to these guys when I need that something extra. Now the disclaimer, the work I’ve done has been with their producer, Trevor Carter. I can’t comment on the other producers in residence, although I can't imagine them employing any duds either. Personally speaking, I’ll keep booking Trevor. He’s really good. I guess one reason you’re reading this review is to decide whether the extra money you'll spend will be worth it. My mates in the band wondered the same thing. There are, let's be honest, a lot of places out there who will record music for much less. You can put together something yourself without ever leaving your bedroom. Like most things, it depends on what you want. If you just want to put something rough up on sound cloud so that everyone else can hear your chops, then this place is probably an overkill. On the other hand, if you really want your project to impress people, then this is the place for you. But back to my mates in the band. We get mates rates from a studio owner who is, indeed, a good friend of ours. He works at a fraction of the cost of these guys in terms of dollars per hour. But the guys in the band are now convinced it will end up cheaper in the long run to do our stuff via Studio 52 than with him. You kind of have to be there in order to appreciate how that can be true. But suffice to say that having a world-class producer driving the latest, a state-of-the-art recording software has its advantages. Things get done quick, and you get good results faster. Anyway, that's my rap. I should say for the record that I’m not getting any incentives or free studio time, or anything like that for writing this review. But these guys have done really well by us and I think they deserve to be recognized. Whoever is reading this, best of luck with getting your sounds out there.
