Studio Total Entertainment is situated in the archipelago
of Åland, more exactly in Kumlinge. The calm and quiet environment can thus
boost your creativity. On Kumlinge you have possibility to experience nature,
e.g. by fishing, bathing and nature walks when you need a break from work.
Instruments: Available are a Gibson Les Paul Standard and a Fender Telecaster (USA). Amplifier used is a Marshall TSL 60 (tube) with a speaker cabinet of four twelve inchers. A Fender Deluxe tube amplifier is also available i the studio. A Fender country-western acoustic guitar is also available, as well as a Yamaha CG 151 S classical guitar. The bassguitar available is a Yamaha RBX460. No actual bassamplifier is available, but can be arranged if necessary. The Marshall amplifier can well be used for the bassguitar, alternatively be lined directly into the mixer with different effects added.
A Roland VR760 is used for the keyboard section. It´s easy to say that the 760 might have the most natural Hammond B3 or C3 sound among synthesizers. The piano sounds are as well scaringly similar to the ones of a real piano. Drums can be rented if needed, and these are also of highest quality: Tama Rockstar with 5 toms, double basspedals etc. Various percussion equipment is also available.
The philosophy of a recording in the studio of Total Entertainment is to record a natural sound. One way to amplify this impression is the use of tube technique which gives the sound a natural warmth. As mentioned earlier tube mics are being used for vocal recordings. In addition, tube preamps and a Behringer tube compressor/limiter is used.
Appr. 60 m from the studio there´s a cottage right on the seaside (2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom). This cottage is winterized and has all conveniences.
Depending on what should be done the fee is decided. Yet the prices are reasonable. Rent for the cottage depends on how many people stay there.
Total Entertainment provides CD printing service. Normal printing time from master CD to ready product is approximately two weeks. Thus Total Entertainment can provide everything from recording to CD ready for sale.
