WELCOME TO ENMORE AUDIO

Enmore Audio is a world class analog and digital recording studio based in the heart of Sydney's inner west owned and run by Radi Safi (Happy, Monday Records) and Dan Shaw (Yen, Circle, Wells). The three room space was designed by luminary acoustician and studio designer John Sayers. Our isolated 'dead' room as well as our live rooms are ideal production, mixing and mastering environments.

ROOMS

THE STABLE

The Stable is our dead room which is home to a few of our amps, the Fender Rhodes and our Yamaha U3 upright piano. It’s perfect for vocals, amps and tight drums.

THE KITCHEN

The Kitchen is our main control room and has a flat response down to very low frequencies. It comfortably fits several people and houses the majority of Enmore Audio’s outboard gear. It’s also home to our main soffit mounted monitors as well as our near fields.

THE GARDEN

The Garden is our largest and most versatile live room. It holds our A-100 Hammond as well as our 1970’s re-issue Ludwig drum kit. It’s big enough to record small ensembles and has enough outputs to accommodate most live recording requirements.

SERVICES

PRODUCTION

From work-shopping songs, experimenting with sounds, fleshing out arrangements through to suggesting session players and artist collaborations as well as balls-to-the-wall Steve Albini style band recordings, we’re passionate about conceptually contributing to every project we help produce.

MIXING

We take a flexible and creative approach to mixing that prioritises originality and sonic quality. From gentle EQ and compression through to a complete re-think of a track, the studio is equipped to handle sessions large or small and help realise your material’s full potential.

MASTERING

The role of mastering in the process of production is frequently misunderstood, and underestimated. We have the tools, experience and the expertise to provide a finished mastered product for a wide range of media platforms. It is often desirable to hand over a complete product to an artist at the end of a recording session and that is goal with every session.
