Affordable Recording in Edmonton

Tracking or live off-the-floor

The pro recording studio experience is not for everyone. It can be intimidating (not to mention expensive), so our philosophy is to keep it simple and affordable while producing excellent results.

If you're ready to record, but not ready to "go pro", Edmonton's (possibly) smallest studio is a great place to start. Realistic Productions’ “Just Play” studio offers a cozy (ok, small) integrated live room (in other words, no space for a separate control room) with everything you need to lay down professional-grade tracks. Hey, if Dave Grohl can do it in a laundry room...
