elstudio offers recording, mixing, composing & production services. We record and write in a number of different musical styles and produce anything from a one-off track to a full album. We have more than 20 years experience in the music industry, with a wide variety of credits.
The philosophy of our residential recording studio extends beyond simple recording into lifestyle and wellbeing. Our belief, based on our own experience, is that creativity born from nature creates greater inspiration and awareness.
We arrange the full itinerary for our clients. Our guesthouse provides room to accommodate 10 people, including a private apartment on top of the studio. If requested, elstudio provides an exclusive spa facility on-site as well as an in-house organic chef.
The recording studio consists of three main rooms. A live room (35sqm), control room (25sqm) and a small booth (3sqm) all of which were designed by legendary George Augspurger. The entrance to the studio is through a big room with an 8m ceiling height, which is great for drum recording.
Enjoy wonderful Costa Rican jungle & ocean views from both the control room and live room. The rest of the house is discretely integrated as being part of elstudio, with tie, speaker and cue lines, even including the bathroom.
elstudio is equipped with a beautiful collection of classic microphones, instruments and analog outboard. All locations and equipment are logically connected to patchbays, so that every professional producer, engineer and musician that walks in immediately feels at ease.
Between sessions artists can take a dip in our private swimming pool, enjoy the warm Pacific Ocean, drink a fresh fruit smoothie on the beach, read in a hammock, have a surf session or take a yoga class. Afterwards, play a new take or listen to your mix with a fresh and clear mind.
