ACCOMMODATION

Accommodate at studio:

The luxurious main accommodation is located upstairs and has a separate bedroom, kitchen, living room and toilet. 140 year old wooden walls, natural stone and rusted metal details create a highly unique and creative atmosphere which can be heard on the albums.

HC-sauna and especially the "Round of Honour" are special experiences on their own.

ANSSI KIPPO

Platinum selling music producer and the heart of Astia-studios who spreads the gospel of analog sound.

"After years of walking the digital path, music just felt wrong and I didn't want to hear a single note outside work. I started experimenting with analog equipment I soon ditched the digital console and once I started recording on tape, I finally found the joy of music again and it gives us all goose bumps!".

Both studios have Trident Vector 432 mixing consoles. The same model has been used on several Rammstein, Björk and dozens of other platinum-selling artists albums. A-studio console has VCA automation which makes tape session mixes fast and easy. Abba had the very same YellowTec automation installed in their console back in the days.

"When others spend days mixing one song, I usually complete 3-4 songs per day when mixing what I have recorded on tape." Anssi smiles and says "Once you get tired of cold, hollow and flat results of digital recording, we can help you improve the quality of your music a lot!"

Anssi delivers a full analog experience and that usually is life changing. This analog enthusiastic keeps spreading the gospel of analog!
