Whether you’re recording as a full band off the floor, or meticulously multi tracking every instrument, we’ll spend the time dialing in the tones that fit your sound and getting the takes to make a great record.

 

Mixing

Whether it’s a song recorded here at the School House, or at another studio, I will take the raw tracking session and provide heavy and hard hitting mix while preserving your bands sound and artistic direction.

Audio Editing

Send your raw recorded un-edited tracks, and I will take care of all of your editing needs. I will edit as loose or tight to the grid as the desired. I can also strip silence necessary tracks such as tom and cymbal spot mics, as well as provide drum MIDI and/or drum sample tracks.

Reamping

Send your recorded guitar DI tracks and we’ll reamp through the huge selection of amp and cabinets and provide the guitar tones requested for your vision.

Send us programmed MIDI drum tracks that you want real drums for. We will record real drums matching the provided MIDI performances with the drum sounds requested to match your projects sound, vibe and direction.

Studio Lockout

School House Studios also offers studio lockouts to freelance engineers and producers who need a great room and selection of gear to record live drums or a full band in.

Nick is the best. Does a great job making the recording process feel super comfortable, and is always down for me to do my own thing. Always a pleasure working with Nick.
— Corbin Giroux // Rarity & Solo Artist
Super friendly environment. Nick is no stranger to any genre of music when it comes to the projects he’s recorded over the years. Nick will record you and make it sound how you want all while getting the experience of a quiet, secluded area in which the studio is located. I’ve recorded here countless times and I will continue to.
— Phill Paxton // Sinner & Hellbent

ABOUT

 
SH - NICK PORTRAIT.jpg

Starting his love of playing music at the age of 12 when he first started playing drums, Nick started dabbling with audio and recording while in high school making demos with bands he was playing in. Since graduating Recording Arts Canada in 2010, Nick has focused on working with punk, hardcore and metal bands helping to create records that sound like a band playing together in a room, while still providing a big and angry sound.

In 2013 Nick opened School House Studios, an independently run recording studio located in Dundas, Ontario, just minutes from downtown Hamilton. Since then Nick has focused his time on working with mostly punk, hardcore and metal bands to help create a great sounding record that keeps the individuality, human element and sound of the band intact.
