STUDIO


LOST SOUND is a recording studio in Marrickville, Sydney. The studio is part of a complex on Faversham Street. Our control room is sunlit and the tracking space is filled with natural light.

Lost Sound primarily services independent musicians to track and/or produce records at an affordable rate.

RATES


Rates are $320/day for mix/overdub only, (use of control room + booth) and $500/day to also use the live room (see details below).

The reason for the additional cost of the live room is that it needs to be hired separately. This helps keep costs down for people who don’t need a big tracking space on every session.

You may also choose to bring in your own engineer, and I will be available to assist the session at no extra cost. The studio prices remain the same in this case, plus the cost of your engineer, at their behest.




LIVE ROOM


There is a considerably large live room available for live band tracking, orchestral recording etc. It sounds great. See below for photos and details:



TAPE


We run an Otari 1/2” tape machine in addition to digital recording. Tape is free to use, unless you decide you would like to keep the tapes, in which case it is priced at $110 per half hour reel. On average, we recommend two reels per session so you are looking at an additional cost of roughly $220 to keep your session’s tape.
