The Lullabye Factory is an All Analog Recording Studio, Record Label, Art Gallery, Booking Agency and Concert Promoter located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our philosophy is creating soulful top-notch analog recordings in an atmosphere where artists feel right at home. Our workflow is one that is direct and engaging, our focus being on sonic revelation. We use Analog Equipment, from the recording console to the classic effects like spring reverb and tape delay. This makes our sound true and revealing.
The Epicentre of The Lullabye Factory is a D&R Orion analog studio console paired with a AMPEX MM1000 16-Track 2 inch Tape Recorder. The Orion is manufactured in the Netherlands by D&R and used to belong to the late Pieter Nieboer, former sound engineer of Golden Earring. The Ampex MM1000 was the first 16-Track ever to be Mass produced, and from the few left in fine working state around the world, we own the only one in the country. The AMPEX MM1000 is legendary for his great sound and robust build. Hence his nickname "The Beast".
Recording - We offer ANALOG recording at The Lullabye Factory. After the recording stage we can mix your work fully analog In-House or we can provide you with the separate tracks (analog ON tape or digitalised FROM tape, to keep all the warm & beautiful character of this medium).
Mixing - If you recorded your work elsewhere we can mix it down through our analog console onto tape, this way you'll get the beautiful sound that only analog summing & bouncing to tape gets done.
Analog Effects - We have a variety of the classic analog effects that have been used on oldschool but also modern records to give them that true sound! Examples are: Spring Reverb, Tape Delay, Plate Reverb or the Echo Room technique! It is possible to send us a track (analog or digital) or just drop it off at our studio, this way you can choose what kind of effects you like while chilling and listening to the result with us!
Analog Recording ON location - Technology finally made it possible for us to capture a live set the proper analog way with the option to remix until satisfied with the result! For recording on location we use our vintage 16 track portable, not so very portable, tape recorder in combination with our even more vintage D&R series 1000 20 channels mixing console.
Analog Mobile Studio - It is even possible to create an Analog Mobile Studio for longer periods of time. In case you would like to record an album in the middle of nowhere in some cabin or an oldschool castle for that matter!
