Recording Studio                               Call us NOW 02 9565-1123

Welcome to Stagedoor's recording studio. We've amassed equipment that delivers quality at affordable rates. 

So what does all this mean? Firstly, a complete facility for recording demos, singles and albums at realistic prices without compromising quality. Secondly, we offer recorded rehearsals at dearer than rehearsal but cheaper than recording rates. Why recorded rehearsals? For the serious musician, these allow you the window to look at your music for production purposes. During rehearsal, when the volume is at 12 on a scale of 10 and everybody is firing and feeling good, you think its fantastic. The recorded rehearsal will reveal that the screaming guitar solo of 308 bars may need to be a tad shorter ( by 10 bars ), or those vocal harmonies may need a little more polishing, and so on. A procedure worth its weight in dB.


We have TWO (2) LIVE ROOMS

O.K., so many of you have recording set ups in the lounge or bedroom. We can be of benefit to you ( and your neighbors ) by tracking the drums in the studio, or providing the professional vocal sound you're after. On the other side of the coin, once all the tracks are down, bring the material into the control room to do the final mix in an environment that provides accurate monitoring, so that what you hear is what you get - supplemented with oodles of FX gear sitting in the Pro-Tools rig.

Richard "Dick" Smith.

Chief Recording Engineer

Possibly the finest studio engineer Stagedoor has ever seen. Dick's ear is second to none, with immense production skills and a great personal disposition, your next recording may very well be the next number one hit.

I have been coming to Stagedoor for eight years. In that time I have rehearsed, auditioned and released three albums, all recorded at Stagedoor.  The thing that stands out is the knowledge, professionalism and genuine friendliness. Kayo knows the facility back to front, he has worked tirelessly to ensure the rehearsal spaces are state of art. That is why so many recording artists still choose to rehearse there. 


After recording three albums, I can say only this, the work ethic, understanding of what artists want and the level of ear training with these guys is second to none. They work efficiently, with great generosity and plenty of helpful advice. Richard, the chief engineer is also a nice guy. So no ego from the guy who gets paid to push buttons trying to tell the artist, they know more about Music than the person creating it.


I look forward to recording many more albums at Stagedoor................

Hi Shaughan,

I just wanted to give you some feedback on our session the other day.
We had a really enjoyable time at Stage Door, and I think we were all put at ease by the professional yet relaxed attitude of everyone we encountered.
Steve was a pleasure to work with ? friendly, patient and efficient, and we were very happy with the results.
I thought of Stage Door for this project because I did some recording there a number of years ago, and I'm pleased to say it was just as good an experience on this occasion.

Best wishes,  David

Hi Shaun,


I just wanted to thank you for your kind hospitality today and the use of your facilities.

I would also thank you for Richard's assistance. It might all be part of the service however, the recordings sound great, his attention to detail, efficiency and general manner were exceptional.


Thanks again.

"Hi K.O.

Peter Hutley here. Just wanted to say what a fantastic job Richard did last weekend on our recordings. We were very impressed with the quality and enthusiasm that Richard (and Danny) brought to the whole proceedings.

If you're looking for endorsements for your new recording facility we are big fans and would be happy for you to say so (I know it's not Cold Chisel, but hey, an endorsement's an endorsement).

Thanks again.
