No matter when or how. The music industry has changed so much in the last 20 years, but there are some unbreakable myths about how a song becomes more than a 3 minute delight piece for listeners; Recording studios are still a valuable part of the whole process.
Aclam Records is one of the most well kept secret spaces from Barcelona's music scene: Not only for being chosen by Grammy Awards honored artists such as Kendrick Lamar or Rosalia, but for being a place where the music creation process meets one of the finest classic-style facilities and lots of analog and unique gear for vintage lovers.
The gear: The heart on every recording studio
The heart of every studio is built by the magic combination based on the analogue spirit and digital support, set by the newest recording tools in the market.
Our 16 track Neve Genesys console represents the main core of Aclam´s sound.
There´s nothing like the warm sound of the 1073 preamp featured in the console, combined with the characteristic sound of a classic Mixbus with standard units of Classic Emi and Chandler units.
Our gear is completed with a full set of vintage sound microphones to choose from. Ribbon and Valve units are a strong companion when guitars, drums or voice need that extra quality sound every single project deserves.
The space: Creation needs space to be projected
Aclam records is one of few studios with more than 100 guitars, 30 deluxe vintage amps and a great upright Steinway & Sons piano available for clients, at your disposal without extra charge. Before any recording is scheduled Aclam offers selected instruments from our collection in order to select the best sounds for every project.
Three different studios in one location
The most classical 60´s style lookalike place, with a 42m2 recording room with space for live-full band recording.
A place where new sounds and production are welcome. Designed and created for sound designers and urban musicians, this is the right space to develop a new approach for music.
Iso & Edit Room
The Edit room is an isolated vocal room where advertising, editing and similar projects are done. The perfect fit for the right work. A small space separated from the rest created to isolate vocalists or delicate acoustic instruments with view into the Live Room.
The Iso booth, with communication with the Edit Room is a space designed to prepare sessions in a simple and comfortable environment. The Iso booth is a great choice for locution or small recording works.
Three selected spaces
Chilling out is also needed when there is so much time to spend in a recording studio. You will experience it thanks to the bar, TV room and chill zone.
The people behind the scenes
And last, but not least, the soul of every artistic project: Jose, Isma and Víctor. They are producers, engineers, mixers, musicians, but mainly, those caring about every detail on every single project coming to the studio.
