At the moment: Working on a new website!
Enhanced Audio Productions is a recording, mixing and mastering company from Umeå, Sweden. The company's headquarters is situated in the legendary Garageland studios founded in the early 80's. The studio was previously occupied by bands like Meshuggah and The Facer.

The recording room is newly renovated and the sound is now more alive.

The control room houses a Mackie D8B console with 48 channels. We use state of the art DAWs and the best plug-ins from Universal Audio, Solid State Logic, Drumagog, Izotope and Focusrite to give you the best sounds possible.

Need drumsounds? No problem! We own the entire catalogs from Toontrack, Steven Slate and LSD studios.

Enhanced Audio Productions are endorsed by Recabinet, Speakerimpulse simulation.

We charge 400 SEK per hour for the studio and engineer. If you provide your own engineer the studio is yours for 1200 SEK per day. VAT is not included to the listed prices.
With cutting edge equipment and software at our disposal, we are prepared to welcome a wide variety of artists and bands to our recording studio. However, even the greatest producers, sound engineers and equipment can only take you so far. Before entering the studio, please consider these advices.

- Bring your instruments in top shape and make sure you have extra strings, drum heads, sticks, picks etc.
- Make sure you are fully rehearsed. This will save you precious time since it will cut down on takes.
- Plan your time. A careful schedule helps you keep within your budget.
Already have a recording but need help to mix it? No problem. Send us your audio files and we will make it sound excellent. Here are a few guidelines to look at before you send us your music.

All tracks edited and all alternative takes and unused stuff removed.

Name all equal tracks the same name for all songs.

For example, name the left guitar LGIT on all songs and not LGIT on one song and LEFTG on others.

If the tracks are not edited, E.A.P can do it for an extra fee of 800 SEK/track.

Drums must have Ddrum mic signals.
Cymbals close miced.

DI and amp signals on guitars and basses.

Drums have to be neatly edited, if not E.A.P can do it for an extra fee (800 SEK/track)
If you have your own mixdown on file, you might feel that the sound is not as massive and polished as you desire. Enter the mastering process. Using top shelf plugins and products, we can enhance your mix to the professional sound worthy your music.

If you want to send us your recording for mastering, please ensure that the file is saved as a valid soundfile running at 44,1khz/24bit.

The master CD is delivered on CD-R or DDP.
