Babajim Studio A is the very best recording studio Istanbul has. It comprises five isolated rooms spread across two levels. Immaculate attention has been paid to every aspect of the studio to ensure aesthetic and acoustic brilliance throughout. The equipment spec is built around a Neve 5088 32 channel analogue console, a great choice of outboard and a Pro Tools HD3 rig loaded with many plug-ins. The live area features a Fazioli Grand Piano and Yamaha drum kit with a large selection of microphones on hand too.
A special feature to the studio is its movable acoustic walls, which can divide the main live space into two separate rooms. These dynamic walls can also be used to create unusual hybrid spaces, so you can really have fun with the studio's acoustic possibilities.
Babajim Mastering features a terrific selection of the best mastering gear available. At the centre of its spec is the powerful Maselec MTC-2 console, which is joined by a huge selection of compressors, EQs, processors and convertors. The monitoring is equally impressive and is provided by ATC SCM-150ASL PRO loudspeakers on custom Black Box stands. Thanks to its unique "stealth bomber" shape, the room completely eliminates side reflections – the sound and accuracy is astounding.
Clients using both Babajim Studio A and Babajim Mastering will have access to the building's classy chillout lounges, which were conceived for total client comfort and privacy. The lounges consist of a spacious lounge, outdoor terrace and bathroom facilities, while on a basement level is a smaller cosy lounge, mini-kitchen and bathroom.
Away from the studios you can enjoy everything there is in Istanbul, one of the world's greatest and most diverse cities. Babajim is located in the heart of Old Istanbul where there is plenty of accommodation available for all budgets, and we can help organising hotels should you require us to. The studio is only 30 minutes drive from Ataturk International Airport and 10 minutes from Taksim Square, which forms Istanbul's commercial and entertainment disctrict.
