Recording At Music Feeds Studio

Music Feeds Studio is a purpose-built recording studio situated in Sydney's Inner West. The space, previously occupied by Megaphon Studios, has seen over 25 years of rich Australian music history revolve through its doors.

The main recording room is a spacious 100m sq and can easily accommodate live band recordings, string sections, choirs and large ensembles. The room has also gained a notable reputation amongst engineers and musicians alike as one of the best drum rooms in Sydney. The timber floors and walls give some great character, and the open space is perfect for capturing a big rock drum sound.

Music Feeds Studio is also home to a beautiful Yamaha C5 baby grand piano, a favourite amongst jazz groups and singer-songwriters. Our facilities also boast two isolation rooms, for vocals, amp isolation, or other acoustic instruments, as well as a large and comfy control room which can also be utilised for an extra tracking space if needed.

The control room features a 40-channel analogue Raindirk LN Symphony console, an Otari MTR-90 2" tape machine, as well an array of tasty analogue pre-amps and outboard gear. The studio also houses more modern hardware including a Pro Tools HD system, running ProTools HD v. 10 with an extensive selection of DSP and Native Plugins.

In the past, some amazing records have been made in this very studio including albums by Midnight Oil, You Am I, Grinspoon, Ian Moss, The Jezabels, Bluejuice, The Hard-Ons, Dappled Cities, Tina Harrod, The Necks and many, many more.

More recently, Music Feeds Studio has also been streaming and recording live performance sessions to the web, and have hosted notable bands such as Birds of Tokyo, Franz Ferdinand, You Me At Six, City and Colour, Boy & Bear, The Preatures, Sticky Fingers and more.
