FAQs – More info and questions clients might like to know.
- How experienced are your engineers?
Our team currently have over 40 years experience in the professional music industry. They have worked in studios all over the world and worked with the biggest names in the industry. To even be considered to work here an engineer must have at least 5 years professional experience.
- Do you have instruments in the studio we can borrow?
Yes, but our focus is recording to the best possible standard, so we do not have a wall to wall display for you to choose from. We have various instruments in the studio, including a vintage Hayman Drum kit, upright and electric pianos, a vintage Fender Rhodes, guitars and violins. Of course should you need to hire instruments specially, we are happy to accommodate this and please let us know on booking if you would like to do this.
- What time is the studio open?
We are open 24/7 by appointment and thanks to our full staff of engineers we have no limits on when we need to close. So if you prefer to record through the early hours or you are an early riser, we can work with you to book you in at a mutually agreeable time.
- Can I bring my film project to you?
At Rofl, we are built to handle a varied mix of complex projects including those with voiceover and ADR needs along with 5.1 mixing. We have full post-production facilities, including a dedicated vocal booth, production suite and capabilities to synchronize with any other digital or analogue system. We also have Source-Connect Pro which allows us to conduct ADR and other post production sessions from anywhere in the world.
- Do you cater for bands outside of Nottingham?
Of Course! In fact we frequently have visitors from as far away as London and Edinburgh and even outside the UK.
- Do you offer a mastering service along with recording and mixing?
For the most professional job, mastering should always be done independently of the recording studio. There are two main reasons for this. 1. It is always useful to have a different set of ears during this process. 2. Mastering and recording studios use completely different sets of equipment along with having rooms specifically designed for that purpose.
If you require mastering we may be able to recommend some specialist mastering studios. Get in touch with your needs and we’ll point you in the right direction.
