Studio

Cederberg Studios is a 250 sqm state-of-the-art studio complex in Kristiansand, Norway. Newly refurbished, it includes a large recording room, two separate recording booths and a spacious control room.

There’s also a smaller control room with tie lines to the main recording room and both booths, which is great for parallel editing, programming and overdubbing during busy sessions.

The main recording room is especially inspiring for when musicians are in there playing together and feeding off each other’s energy. It has excellent acoustics, making it ideal for placing room mics on instruments and amps to capture the room’s depth and ensure that the sound coming from each source is as authentic as possible.

Equipment
There’s a collection of over 60 microphones, as well as a wide range of preamps, compressors and EQs.  There’s a Bösendorfer piano from 1906 – which for years was used in a concert hall in Vienna – a beautifully warm sounding Petrof upright piano, a full Slingerland drum kit from 1974, and lots of guitars and amps.

Full list of equipment.

Aside from that, there’s a reliable backline rental company nearby with a huge selection of equipment, all available at a discount price.

Accommodation
The studio has a fully residential flat with a living room, modern kitchen and bathroom, plus two bedrooms that can sleep up to 6 people. Kristiansand city centre is 20 mins walk away, and the sea, some picturesque fishing areas and beaches are just 10 mins walk away.

A bit of history
Built in 1978, the studio is the oldest in Norway. A lot of amazing records have been cut within these walls. At some point it was bought by a property developer, who planned to demolish it and build other premises. But when work started, it was realized that dynamite would have to be used to break up the studio’s 500+ tons of concrete. The owner eventually gave up and sold it to me. So, luckily Cederberg Studios can carry on creating explosive music instead!

“This studio is as good as any I've been in”
