Recording Facilities


Live room:

Our main live room is a light room with high ceiling, treated acoustics and a calming atmosphere. The room is 90m2 (340m3) and has a reverberation time of 0,62 seconds. The room has an open and natural sound and is large enough to record several musicians simultaneously. A movable diffuser wall and several movable dampening walls are available to alter the acoustics or provide some separation between instruments.

Dry Room:

The dry room has dampened acoustics and is an ideal space for drier drum or vocal recordings. The room is 20m2 and is perfect for separating loud instruments that one does not wish to bleed into other microphones in the live room. The dry room has a window for visual contact with the live room.

Iso Booth A:

Iso Booth A is 8m2 and has dry acoustics and a large glass door into the live room. This gives a clear visual contact both with the live room and the dry room.

Iso Booth B:

Iso Booth B is 4m2 and is perfect for tucking away a guitar or bass amplifier to isolate loud recordings. There is no visual contact with the other rooms.

Other Facilities:

Øra Studio also offers a lounge area where artists can relax and a large balcony to enjoy fresh air and the harbour view.
