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

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


$320/day for full use of control room + booth, or
$500/day to use the live room in addition to control room/booth (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.

studio amps


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 machine


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.

Please ask if there are any additional microphones or effects that you are specifically after for your project as I may be able to organise their use for your session.
