elstudio offers recording, mixing (also online) and full production services in a number of different musical styles, from a one-off track to a full album.
The facility caters to artists, bands and various kinds of productions that require an exclusive, private environment for writing, recording, mixing, rehearsing and/or pre & post-production.
We arrange the full itinerary for our clients. The Villa provides room to accommodate 10 people, including a private apartment on top of the studio.
An in house engineer/producer is included in every session. When the clients brings his/her own, the in house engineer/producer will be available for assistance when needed.
On request, elstudio provides an exclusive on-site Spa facility and food catering.
The recording studio consists of three main rooms. A live room (35sqm), control room (25sqm) and a small booth (3sqm) all of which were designed by George Augspurger. The entrance to the studio is through the Villa's living room, with a ceiling height of 8m, which is great for ...well you know.
Artists can simply fly in and rehearse or do pre production for an upcoming album or tour. There is a full backline available and specific instruments that are not currently at elstudio can be obtained on short notice as required.
Between sessions artists can take a dip in our private swimming pool, enjoy the warm Pacific Ocean (only 800m away), drink a fresh fruit smoothie on the beach, read in a hammock, have a surf session or take a yoga class. Afterwards, play a new take or listen to your mix with a fresh and clear mind.
Enjoy wonderful Costa Rican jungle & ocean views from both the control room and live room. The rest of the house is discretely integrated as being part of elstudio, with tie, speaker and cue lines, even including the 8m high living room and resonant bathroom.
The philosophy of our destination recording studio extends beyond simple recording into lifestyle and wellbeing.
Our belief, based on our own experience, is that creativity born from nature creates greater inspiration and awareness.
