Our facility is set up such that a band can choose to either track together or separately. We have 4 different rooms with different sounds, that we can mix and match to accommodate even the most challenging set ups. In terms of wiring, all our rooms are interconnected, meaning we can send speaker or signal levels to each room from the control room or from each room to another room. For example, a guitarist or bass player can comfortably sit in the control room while tracking because we can send their speaker or sound-signal to whatever room where the guitar amp or speaker is placed. It also means that even for large set ups we can accomplish great separation while tracking a band together. For instance, we can have a drum and bass amp set up in the live room, stack a guitar amp in booth1 sound lock entrance, put horns in the larger booth 2, and have singers in the vocal booth1. All these rooms have windows and a line of sight to each other. Booth2 has a double door that can be opened to increase the feeling of togetherness for the band.
Sometimes when having many people in smaller areas and all the amps on at the same time, things can get warm! Not at Bunker Sound. We have 2 separate quiet air-conditioning units that service the studio. The airco system has been designed such that the airflow is low enough not to make noise while recording or mixing. This is great because it means we don’t have to turn the air-conditioning off while recording and the studio area remains comfortable.
One of the main starting points to record a good performance, is that the artist can hear him (her) self properly. At Bunker Sound we use an Aviom headphone system. It allows us to send 16 channels of audio to the individual mixers, such that the artists can mix their own headphone mix. The sound quality is very high. Gone are the days where people are screaming for “more me”. We just give you all the audio you need and you choose what to use and how loud.
