Recording and producing great music takes a combination of things to get the mojo right. You need top end equipment, great people, the right environment and good vibes all round. The Porch Recording Studio has it all. Located on the outskirts of Hamilton in a serene rural setting, it has all you need to put everything else behind you and focus on the job of creating great music and sounds. We can write, compose, produce, arrange, engineer, record and enhance the vision you have for whatever soundtrack you are putting together.
Welcome to The Porch Recording Studio.

We have a wide range of production music at our disposal plus the talent and creativity to give you the edge through great original music and sound.

The Porch Recording Studio was built and purposely designed for recording quality audio. Our large air conditioned control room makes for a comfortable and great sounding experience. Different parts of our live room offer alternative reflective wood surfaces and there are mid to high frequency absorption panels designed to control the response of the room. The Porch also offers an isolation booth large enough to record a drum kit. The room is fully dead of reflections and great for vocals or anything requiring a dry signal.
