FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book a session in your studios?
Jamplifier Studios are no commercial facilities, they are only used to produce music created by artists collaborating with us. This also means that you cannot simply book a session in our studios. Please follow the instructions on our Artist Services page if you'd like to work with us.
What kinds of instruments can you record in your studios?
We record vocals, as well as almost all kinds of instruments. We usually don't record drums however, as our recording space is not well fitted for this purpose. There are better places to record drum sets, and therefore we're collaborating with local facilities offering great drum recording environments.
Why Apple Logic Pro, why not Pro Tools?
This is mostly for historical reasons, as we have been working with Logic since the mid 1990s. Some people will tell you that you'll absolutely need to work on Pro Tools or that all professional recording studios only run Pro Tools, but this is simply not true. Logic is used by a large number of professional producers, and it perfectly fits our workflow. Also remember that we use the DAW mostly to emulate an analog tape machine, while most of the sound manipulations are done using our SSL console and our outboard equipment.
Why MOTU/AVB, why not some MADI/DANTE converters?
Again, there are historical reasons for this, as we have been using MOTU devices since the 1990s, and the current higher end interfaces offer excellent A/D and D/A converters. Some people will tell you that MOTU's preamps aren't the best (which may even be true), but remember that we're not using interfaces featuring preamps at all, we completely rely on Neve 1073 (probably among the best preamps ever made), SSL SuperAnalogue and SPL preamps.
