Analogue Catalogue is a residential analogue recording studio in Ireland. Recording to 24 track 2” Tape through a vintage Trident Series 80B desk, we made beautiful sounding records for a decade in Manchester until 2013, when our control room was dismantled and reassembled within a 3 storey stone mill overlooking the Mourne Mountains in County Down. The much loved control room now connects to over 1000 sq ft of live areas - a large 600 sq ft apexed ceiling live room, a 'Westlake-style' 2nd live room, and also to additional tie lines and mic inputs throughout the building. Within the mill we also offer eco friendly beautifully crafted artist accommodation heated by a wood burning stove, with a plentiful supply of fuel from our studio woods and log store.
Recent clients of Analogue Catalogue include The Vaselines (Sub Pop), Jeffrey Lewis (Rough Trade), King Creosote & Jon Hopkins (Domino), Barbarossa (Memphis Industries), The Music Tapes (Merge), James Yorkston (Domino), Allo Darlin' (Slumberland/Fortuna Pop), Fionn Regan (Universal), The Offset: Spectacles (Rose Mansion Analog, Beijng), The Shivers (Silence Breaks/Fence) and more. We offer first class analogue recording in beautiful surroundings whilst remaining within the recording budgets of independent record labels and self-releasing artists around the world.
At Analogue Catalogue everything is recorded to 24 Track 2" tape through our recently re-capped and lovingly maintained Trident Series 80B console and Otari MTR-90MkII Analogue Multi-Track Recorder. The machine room houses both the tape machine and desk power supplies which means that the control room contains no computers, screens or fan noise. This allows for a level of audio concentration that was the professional norm in recording studios prior to the digital invasion.
