Services

Founded and owned by Jens Bogren (e.g. Opeth, Sepultura, Dimmu Borgir, Amon Amarth, Kreator, Arch Enemy, Dir En Grey, Marty Friedman, Devin Townsend) Fascination Street Studios has become synonomous with the highest sonic quality possible. We do everything from full productions to mastering only, and offer custom solutions for most budgets. No project is too big or small for us!

Check out the staff pages for sound examples from our engineers/producers David Castillo, Tony Lindgren, Johan Örnborg, Linus Corneliusson, André Alvinzi, Per Aldeheim and of course Jens himself. Or you could watch one of our slightly embarrassing videos, or order your mastering directly in our webshop/order form.

Confused? Send us an email and tell us what you need, or let us have a listen and we will find a good solution together!


Select service:

We move with the market and offer flexible production packages. Do you want a full production with Jens Bogren, David Castillo or Per Aldeheim, or do you perhaps prefer spending your budget on drum recording and mixing while recording the rest on your own? Get in touch and we’ll help you find the best solution to fit your needs. Both our studios in Stockholm and Örebro offer fully equipped apartments where your band can stay, free of charge!

Prices for recording and full productions are calculated per project.

We have what’s needed to do productions on the highest level. Besides a good selection of amps, cabs, guitars and basses, we have a Tama Star Maple kit with all available sizes and a huge amount of different snare drums. You’ll also find a Hammond M100 with a a Leslie 147 and a Baby Grand Piano. Contact us if you need any specifications prior to recording.

Mixing is the process where your recordings come to life – or not. Sound wise it’s the single most important step of your production. A skilled mixing engineer will take your songs to a new level, providing them with the sound they deserve. Many great bands have experienced what mixing with one of our engineers at Fascination Street Studios can do for their music.

Prices for mixing are calculated per project. Please check out our engineers below, and contact us for a quote.

We accept Pro Tools sessions or consolidated files with zero start. Send them in whatever source format you’ve been using, do not convert the sample rate or bit depth. Make sure you record in 24 bit or higher. It’s a good practice to clean the Pro Tools sessions from hidden or unwanted tracks. And always include a monitor/rough mix! It doesn’t matter how bad it sounds, it’s only there for us to know that the files are in sync and that nothing’s missing.

If your session is a mess in deep need of editing: expect to hear from us. We can offer these services, but normally the mixing engineer won’t do this job for you.

Have you recorded your guitars and bass tracks with Di signals? We’re happy to re-amp them if needed.

Some of our engineers offer online unattended mixing only. If you wanna sit in on a session with Jens or David you’re welcome to do so. Lodging is available. Expect to be dragged on to Jens’ boat for a fishing adventure though. 🙂

Mastering: the final frontier. With a delicate mix between analogue and digital gear, our engineers Tony and Jens will do what’s within and beyond the laws of physics to make your master as clear, loud, wide and proud as possible without destroying your mixes. And does your mix need some help? Well, nothing will beat a good mix, but a lesser mix certainly needs a good mastering. Check our new mastering video below!

Facilities

Life’s too short! Let’s make the best out of it. Our studios feature some of the greatest equipment and instruments around, both vintage and new. Enjoy your stay in the artist apartments next to the studios!

Studio 1

The facility in Örebro is a studio mainly for mixing and mastering, even though some recording still takes place here. This is where Jens and Tony are spending most of their time. The studio boasts a custom-made hybrid setup for mixing and mastering that allows all the benefits of the analogue environment but with the recallability of an all-digital setup.

Studio 2

Our studio in Stockholm where David Castillo is running the show is a top of the line modern recording studio with all the bells and whistles. How about an SSL console surrounded by all of the classic outboard gear you can imagine, monitored through Barefoot Sound speakers and the classic NS10’s?

The main recording room is the most important part of this studio though. The lush sound of a great room can’t be simulated!

The fully equipped apartment can house up to six people. It’s located next to the studio and close to the center of Stockholm. Right outside you’ll find restaurants, shops, local amenities and easy access to tram and subway stations. This studio facility is locally marketed as Studio Gröndahl.
