Welcome to EB Studio on the Internet!
EB Studio is a small recording studio in Sandnes, Norway. It's basically a mobile recording studio that has been on the road for 20 years. A new recording studio is under construction. We do remote recording, mostly in the nearby area, primarily for local choirs and groups wanting to release their own CD's and cassettes. We do both classical and popular music projects. We also do sound and music for television and video production. We go for quality and all our recorders are digital as well as our digital editing. Since the start in 1976 we have done around 200 casette- and CD-productions.

We charge per hour so it's important that those playing or singing have rehearsed and know their stuff. It's equally important that any musicians equipment are in good shape; no bad cords with buzz and hum.
You are of course allowed to make mistakes during a recording. Things are re-taken several times, things are cut out and on the final record only the best is used. "We'll fix it in the mix" is often heard, however you cannot fix everything there...
A producer is a good thing to have. When something is recorded you need to decide there and then whether it is good enough and you can carry on, or if you have to take it again. A producer is paid to take thouse decissions and is normally a great help. However, low budgets don't always allow for a producer, so sometimes you just have to do without - it can still become a great record!
When the recordings are done, we make a working-copy, a rough mix, normally on a CD, so that the customer can listen to what was done, and select the stuff to work on during the mixing.
Very often the editing job is quite a bit more demanding. You may have to rescue a recording where you have no good takes at all, by editing together a couple of bars from take one, some from take two, some from take three, etc. This takes a lot more time. You can copy, cut and paste parts of the music just like in an ordinary text editor.
The finished result is your master-tape as a digital DAT cassette (DAT = Digital Audio Tape). This is sent off to cassette or CD production.

EB Studio is a registered companay run in the spare time by Ove Eldøy. During the day he works with robotics. But hobbies like music and electronics led to the creation and start of EB Studio back in 1976(!). At times, EB Studio does consume quite a bit of the available spare time...
EB Studio stands for "Evangelic Tape Studio". "Oh - oh", something religious?! Yes, that's right, Ove is a Christian and many of the projects at EB Studio reflect this. Several of our customers are Christian gospel choirs and groups making cassettes and CDs. We do of course also take on other projects.
