SERVICES WE OFFER
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.
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.
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.
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.
Remote Drum Tracking
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.
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.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT RECORDING AT SCHOOL HOUSE STUDIOS
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.
