Situated in a private complex of boutique businesses on the end of East Darling St, The Vault is perfectly equipped for the many VIP clients we’ve had over the years, providing an exclusive location most people would not know is even there right on Sydney Harbour.

Our sun drenched, private and acoustically amazing control room peers in to a live room of hard wood, retro furnishings and gorgeous lighting, which is also linked to a second recording room. Each room is maximised for visual communication, optimal acoustic performance and a feel that leaves both engineers and artists alike wanting to work through the night and to keep coming back.

And when you want a break, you can walk down to the water and gaze over the famous harbour bridge, take a ferry right into the city or a short walk to some of the best cafes in town. Of course, we have a fully equipped kitched and coffee facilities in the studio for those who prefer not to leave as well.
[/av_icon_box] [av_icon_box icon=’ue897′ font=’entypo-fontello’ position=’left’ title=’The Sound’ link=” linktarget=’no’] All the engineer/producers who hire the space are loyal returning clients who love the space not only for it’s open yet private feel and great interior vibe, but also because of the sound of the room and gear itself.

Our main live room is a coveted combination of open and live sounding but with a quick and very natural decay. It is neither too live, nor lifeless, and is just the right dimension to bring the character out of every musical instrument that is played in there. It also have plenty of interesting places to put room mics allowing a multitude of sounds.

The secondary live room is our darker option, just as lively but ideal for brighter instruments that need a bit of help from the room itself to sound “bigger” whilst still retaining a controlled, easy to mix sound.

Our control room is famous for its natural and even frequency response. Records made at The Vault translate extremely well and coupled with our numerous pairs of monitors take all the guesswork out of recording and mixing.

Coupled with an extensive list of rare/vintage and new, boutique gear (see our gear list (hyperlink) for more), you can be guaranteed that recordings at the Vault will stand up to anything, anywhere in the world.

Want to run amp heads in the control room and speakers in another? Or a choice of analogue summing for mixdown? Or perhaps you wish to use low latency monitoring out of software rather than the console? Or run a live band tracking session?

The Vault is meticulously designed to be totally customiseable and efficient so when any of the producers or engineers who use the space come in it is instantly familiar to them and sessions run faster.

[/av_icon_box] [av_icon_box icon=’ue80b’ font=’entypo-fontello’ position=’left’ title=’The Staff’ link=” linktarget=’no’]The Vault, like most studios, has a team of in house engineers and producers specialising in the Vault’s many configurations and the gear we have.

What sets us apart however is that we are all working producers and session musicians with our own professional networks in the industry. We have ongoing relationships with other studios, major labels, music publishers and advertising agencies and we make records for all of them, so when you hire an engineer you’re not only getting someone who intimately knows how to perform their job, you are getting someone who is qualified in multiple facets of music too so you’re never lacking for expertise in your session.

If you want us to make coffee and show you the patch, we’ll do just that. If you want us to engineer, we’ll can do that too. Or if you’re a musician with a particular sound in your head, we can help you not only pick the mics, but tune the drums and set up the guitars as well. We have all the expertise to achieve world class results.
