RECORDING, MIXING, (pre)MASTERING STUDIO
Kreastion vzw has set up a new young recording studio that is completely at the service of acoustic music (classical, Jazz, ...). Both live recordings and studio recordings are possible.
capturing sound for all individual instruments together or seperately is a balance between art and science.
Procedural approuches and a set of good trained ears is the key to a sucessfull mix. To create virtual spacing between instruments is the key to outstand regular mixing studio's
Putting music into production needs yet another step. Mastering is an art on its own.
Do not put your 'music' on tape, but the heart of your soul!
Phylosophy of the studio
Nothing but the beauty of pure acoustic music. In order to capture the deepness and the clearness of the pure vibrations of air special techniques are required. This is our focus at the studio.

Backup: Digital usage and storage have become major issues for studios and clients. Due to the unreliable nature of this digital world, we cannot guarantee the safe use or storage of digital audio files. We strive to do our best with audio file manipulation and storage, but there are many things out of our control. For example there are often “bugs” in operating systems and attendant software; hardware components that suddenly become defective in hard drive power supplies; glitches in the operations of complex computer functions, etc., that can cause losses in data. Although such losses are infrequent, JamSpot accepts no liability for the usage or storage of any data or audio files.
It is necessary for every client to provide backup for digital audio file storage.
Kreastion vzw is not responsible for educating or instructing client on care and storage of digital data and media, or any data, media or client files lost or corrupted while stored on studio hard drives. Please note, as well, that files will be stored for no more than 30 days following completion of the session.
Damages: Client shall be responsible for any loss or damage to Kreastion vzw premises and/or property caused by the client, the client’s employees, guests, invitees or agents acting under client’s instruction, as a result of misuse, negligence, carelessness or willful misconduct..
