There was a nice little piece on the studio in the form of a Q&A yesterday. Long live streetpress! Here’s a transcription:
What’s the studio set up you have there equipment-wise? We call Enmore Audio a hybrid space in that there’s a heap of analog gear and a heap of digital gear. We also use tape machines so we’re well and truly into the old school sound but use Pro Tools for mixing.
Any tips for artists entering a studio for the first time? There’s a bunch of cliches out there that every studio owner / engineer / producer say about this topic.

An Enmore Audio logo was never going to be easy. I wanted to have nothing to do with it so asked the guys at DPM Creative to just go nuts. Here’s what I got back:
Circle have covered What Have I Done to Deserve This by the Pet Shop Boys. Half the clip was shot here. Pretty neat.
Just finished mixing Circle’s latest cover offering of the Pet Shop Boy’s What have I Done to Deserve This and they’re sounding pretty good. They I say… Well the original was pretty lush and slow and I referenced a bit of Camera Obscura on the final day of mixing. Some extra reverb on the drums was nice but the snare lost its snap. I always master to tape and play around with some vari speed options and this sucker was just screaming to go faster so I pushed it as far as it would go. The result? Well we have the original and the King Richard’s Disco re-rub. King Richard because we sampled Richard doing this crazy Michael Jackson thing at the beginning. It’s a bit gay lord a bit 90′s dance but ultimately you decide. (when they eventually get released).
