The Keppoch Shores Recording Studio is centrally located in Stratford and is well equipped for most any recording project. The musical centrepiece of the studio is the Steinway “B” Grand Piano. We are the only recording studio on PEI with a grand piano, and it’s a STEINWAY! The studio features top of the line preamps by Avalon, Neve & Phoenix Audio, Dangerous monitoring, and the Hear Technologies Hear Back System. The MAC recording platform is paired with PRO-TOOLS HD (16 channel I/O) and is loaded with some of the finest plugins by SLATE DIGITAL, SONNOX, ISOTOPE, and WAVES. MELODYNE is here to help smooth your vocals. We have OMNISPHERE 2 for great synth patches, and the complete VIENNA SYMPHONIC CUBE for more complex arrangements.
The expanded live room has been fully tested and acoustically treated and is capable of many configurations. Piano trio (piano, bass, drums), or any combination of electric instruments is doable. There is vocal or guitar/bass amp isolation available. Acoustic guitar sounds amazing in the room!
The studio has a great collection of microphones for any application. The flagship Telefunken ELA-251 M has an incredible sonic presence and is known as “THE VOCAL MIC”. Then there is the Neumann U-87 ai that sounds great on anything. The Neumann TLM 103 and two Neumann KM-184's are all fine microphones. Two vintage (1970's) Sennheiser MD 421s, the AKG 112 D, and the usual Shure SM57s all sound great on the drum kit.
Donald Fraser is the owner and operator of the studio. He’d be glad to engineer and produce your next recording project. As a professional keyboard player and arranger in many genres, Donald can help shape your project.
