    Hey everyone,

    first thanks to everyone using the practice room, its been great so far. The studio is basically finished now, bar a pane of glass but to get the ball rolling i thought id stick out an offer for people.

    I am offering a days recording for 80. Yep. So what you get is access to all the equipment and mixing done (i do the engineering and have an assistant kicking about) for 80

    The day is 8 hours long starting at 10am.

    Ideally i think that if interested you should book two days to allow for recording on one day and mixing on the other but its up to you guys!

    Below is a gear list for those interested. its differerent from the original ones i posted coz i changed a few things about.

    For those who dont know, the studio is located 5 mins from Laverys and has full ktchen and toilet facilities. There are three rooms, a dry drums room, a big lvie room and a treated mix room.

    If anyone is interested, im gonna offer this for thhe next thirty days so get in touch!

    Hey everyone,

    ive updated the list above with some new gear for yous to have a look.

    bookings are coming in for both, so i thought id just post something about the prices as people are asking.

    Rehearsal space is currently 12 pounds per hour, however discount is added in if a regular slot is booked. Normal bookings are 3 hours, however some bands have booked longer slots.

    Discount can also be provided for earlier day slots if necessary. Get in touch.

    thanks

    Dave
  8. avatar DaveT
    few slots here and there still available.

    if anyone wants to come have a look around too, that can be arranged.

    Dave

    bump.

    ive started filling up for the new year, if people fancy a slot give me a shout!

    Just to add - Dave's not only a really nice guy to work with, but
    the rehearsal studio is the nicest one I've ever been in!

    Having seen the recording setup too, I can confirm that Dave is
    a massive tech nerd who has put in a lovely setup.

    I cannot recommend Black Swan highly enough folks. Nice big room, great equipment, fantastic location (if you're in Belfast). Dave is incredibly helpful and friendly and [b:caa36e5110]he knows his shit big time[/b:caa36e5110]

    Best practice room in Belfast as far as I'm concerned. Check it on out.

    Hey Dave T and all~ hi from Portland, Oregon!
    Cool beans, yo. Your studio sounds like [b:2ffc6d6cd9]just[/b:2ffc6d6cd9] the place I'm looking for. I had Yakuza over here a while back to mix & am currently mixing some stuff for Dublin's Hassle Merchants. I'm hoping/planning to be over mid-April/mid-May for a fastfuder's wedding & would love to record/mix some other fantastic norn bands while over. Looking for a studio home AND bands that might want to work with me.

    Dave, I'm gonna email you directly about stuff; [b:2ffc6d6cd9]I don't mean to hijack your thread! (I'll gladly delete this post if y'd like)[/b:2ffc6d6cd9]and if anybody would like to hear some stuff I've recorded/mixed (Yakuza, Large Mound, an early Gossip tune, etc) feel free to drop me a PM here, as long as we'll be working out of Black Swan :)
