Lites Down is a 2000 sq ft recording facility located in Rosemont Petite Patrie operating since September 2017. The space includes a central control room, large live room, lounge, functional kitchen, and unique salle de bain.
The control room revolves around a 1970's Neotek Series One console. Originally built in Chicago, the console has been brought up to spec in Montreal after travelling from NYC. Integrated right hand patch bay gives endless access to outboard hardware. Our control room offers comfortable seating for clients with a view facing west towards Mont Royal.
The live room contains a 1950's Willis upright piano, Hammond A100 with Leslie Cabinet, 1970's Ludwig drums with space for full band tracking. Two isolated booths are connected to the live room. The live room can assist musicians in many recording or pre production projects.
The lounge also overlooks Mont Royal, facing west. A fully functional kitchen keeps sessions rolling smooth and caffeine warm. WIFI is provided.
Lites Down offers the studio to record production, freelance engineers, pre production, post production, and can be contacted for daily rates and a complete gear list. Fully compatible with digital/analogue requirements.
We welcome you to Lites Down.
