Studio 52 Of Australia - Studio 52. Collingwood. Not for serious artists! Avoid!
Only my third recording after finding them via the internet. It was also a recommendation too as well, on the internet. It was terrible! A heads up if you are wanting to get a quality production. I am a female singer and i write some songs, and i wanted a full production. I went in there to talk to the owner and the gear seemed fine. And he basically went over what was required for me to hear, to get a sale. He said “We will finish the song to a commercial standard for you”. The position of getting a contract or written agreement or anything in writing was out of the question. I ended up getting this older engineer. They indicated that they had no access to live musicians, and only did virtual instruments? This was obviously to get a higher cut of the fees. They assured me being new that the sound would be equivalent to any live musician playing. They have a high schools program called “Kool schools” and have concentrated on this form of work. Hence, when it came to real musicians playing, they really struggled, and i was under the impression, besides what they were stating, they were not available. They are essentially a kids recording studio. So besides showing you on there web site and presentations of big flashy boards and being able to record drums and keyboards it is all a fancy charade. I was quoted on email for 10 hour two day blocks, and got 8 instead. They do not care, once i gave over the money, even though i was a female singer only doing my third song. Anyone with a decent ear for sound could tell the result. There was no compression, no mastering, no edits. I had to go elsewhere to finish it. They were so rude on the phone, offering me no opportunity to finish it without incurring more cost. I earlier was considering a further song, but without musicians, and the way the song was sounding, i thought better of it and i said NO. Wanted me to finish it there, and after the way i was treated, and from what i was quoted by email i said – No thanks! Besides, parking there is impossible in the middle of busy Collingwood on Johnston Street. I had to go to another company to finish it, but it would be at the same cost. They wanted me to finish it there for more $ than quoted. No thanks. Never again! Studio 52 is fine maybe to do kids projects.
