Question de Son (« Question of Sound ») Studio was born out of the sheer will of two sound addicts who challenged themselves to build the studio of their dreams.
Right in the center of Paris, only 5 minutes from the Eurostar train station and the Marais, the studio is surrounded by trendy cafés, vintage shops and countless food spots with specialities from all over the world. The street is a typical Parisian melting pot of cultures and styles. Hidden away between two buildings, you will find an impressive 300m² (3230 ft²) space dedicated entirely to sound.
QDS Studios houses three studios for recording and mixing : Studio A (24 channel Neve VR series), Studio B (SSL 4048G+) and an Atmos studio designed to the strictest specifications featuring a unique AMADEUS 9.1.4 Monitoring System, as well as a pair of ATC SCM25. Add an unrivalled list of microphones, instruments and outboard gear in France and you'll have a unique mix between a vintage experience and a modern budding studio.
QDS Studios is an independent studio, so its rates are very affordable. Artists signed to major record labels have recorded here (Kanye West, Lil Nas X, Babyshambles, Beck, Gregory Porter, Frank Ocean...) as well as independent musicians (Rover, Keziah Jones, Anthony Joseph, Elliott Murphy, Mashrou'Leila, Stuck in the sound...). Our two in-house sound engineers are the founders themselves: Jordan and Frédéric, but we have also had some big names who have used our space to record and mix: Stephen Street, Mark Plati, Mike Hedges, Haydn Bendall, Phil Délire, Dan Black, Helik Hadar, Darrell Thorp.
