elstudio is the professional recording studio located in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.
The facility caters to artists, bands and all various kinds of productions that require an exclusive, private environment for recording, mixing, songwriting, rehearsing and/or pre & post-production.
Artists can simply fly in and rehearse for an upcoming tour. There is a full backline available and specific instruments that are not currently at elstudio can be obtained on short notice as required. 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.
There is an exclusive spa facility on-site as well as an in-house organic chef.
elstudio offers online mixing, composing & production services. We write and record in a number of different musical styles and produce anything from one-off tracks to entire scores or soundtracks.
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.
The recording studio consists of three main rooms. A live room (35sqm), control room (25sqm) and an iso booth (3sqm) all of which were designed by George Augspurger.
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, so that every professional producer, engineer and musician that walks in feels at ease.
