Established in 2008 and nestled in the heart of the mother city, the Red Bull Music Studios Cape Town aims to be a platform for growth in the vibrant local music scene. A musicians dream, the studio features the latest digital music technology, quality recording equipment as well as a choice selection of vintage analogue gear. Comprised of a main recording studio with an adjacent live room as well as a smaller studio with attached vocal booth, the space provides up and coming as well as established artists the opportunity to bring their ideas to life.
An open space that can accommodate about 50 people seated comfortably, perfect for workshops, lectures and info-sessions. Swing the DJ booth in front of the couch, put a bar in the corner and turn the lights down low and the space becomes a great place for art exhibitions, live music shows and straight up parties for around 100 people.
Centered around a Solid State Logic AW924 Console as the heart of the main Studio, the control room is a comfortable space for tracking, producing, mixing and on many occasion a space to unwind and get loose (just no drinks near the SSL!)
A no-nonsense space perfect for vocalist and bands alike featuring a modest selection of amps, mics and both a Yamaha Tour Custom 4 and Roland TD30 Electronic Kit.
A no-nonsense space perfect for vocalist and producers alike featuring a modest selection of synths, modular instruments, and a vocal booth.
