"It sounds incredible. This shouldn’t be a surprise to me but I find myself shocked at how little I need to do to make this all work together, as all these processes are so perfectly balanced. Why did we ever go digital?"
Soundgas founder, Tony Miln, has spent nearly thirty years bringing together an eclectic selection of classic, bespoke, exotic, and downright weird gear that lives in the Soundgas Studio.
Taking the sonic road less travelled and exploring the outer reaches of recording equipment and techniques has led to many discoveries and new uses for long-forgotten devices.
This incredible resource is now available to help shape the sounds in your music via the Soundgas Studio Service: wherever in the world you are.
Whether you wish to give us detailed direction, or simply ask us to ‘Soundgas it’, we can tailor our service to your individual requirements.
Each piece possesses its own sonic signature; by selecting a chain of multiple processors our experienced engineers can sculpt a unique sound for your music.
Send us your music and comments – be it stems, sounds, samples, or a whole mix – and let us do the rest.
Whether you wish to choose specific pieces of gear, have a sonic brief/reference for us or just want us to 'Soundgas It!'
We have a growing library of sound clips from the studio.
Here’s what we did with some string stems (supplied by Calum Minuti-Goold) treated with various combinations of equipment.
Tubes, wires, capacitors, transistors. Something special happens to sound when signals pass through circuitry. That larger than life three dimensional sonic character is hard to achieve via software alone.
Every piece of vintage gear is subtly different: individual components change over time; historic repairs and modifications result in a unique sonic signature; something even the best-designed plugins can’t emulate.
Full studio gear list is here (perpetual work in progress!), but some pieces are undoubtedly at the core our sound…
Reverbs: our pair of Grampian 636 units, a Kawasaki broadcast reverb, and an every-growing number of “secret weapon” Japanese and European 60s/70s units that each have a character of their own.
Early Digital: Eventide, Lexicon, Ursa Major, and of course our beloved pair of Publisons.
Tape Echo: so many… including our stunning studio RE-201 and 301 (plus as many extra machines as we need!), Tony’s treasured Echoplex EP-2, our HH Slider Echo…
Binson Echorec: machines with various modifications are always coming through on test, but our super-slow varispeed Baby and valve T7E are permanent fixtures.
And then there’s our Calrec Q Series console, the outboard, the secret weapons… read more on the full Studio Gear List…
