Need a studio in Paris

Need a studio in Paris

Got a client traveling in Paris who needs a studio to record a vocal in the next few days. What are the options and price ranges? Looking for good commercial spot with high end mics, but obviously doesn't need a huge room or massive console. Thanks!

That a tricky one... let's see in Paris: Twins studio, Question de Son (owned by some gearslutz member btw), Ferber, Grande armée, Studio Appolo (Volodia studio), Guillaume Tell, and Studio de la seine.
Omega is a school now, Davout have closed...etc.
Big act mostly go to Twin, Question de Son, Grande armée and Ferber right now.
Hope that help

Red Room (big space, but maybe they have a smaller producer room?).

Visit the Miloco site - they’ll have somewhere!

There are tons of good commercial studios in and around Paris, it would be easier if you tell us where in Paris the person is or would prefer to be, the budget, how much time is required and when they would like to record...is he recording on tape or DAW, which DAW etc.

That studio was formerly “The Engine Room” and has always been there (maybe the now SSL came from Paris? Though I have a feeling it just came across town). Spent a lot of time in there!

Anyway, Miloco definitely has Paris based studios on their books.

35 mins north of Paris Studio: vintage equipment and exceptional location.

I've never been butbits run by a friend of a friend. My friend has worked there and said it was a great experience. Can't tell what the mic locker is from website though

I know the room was here long before but I stand by what I said. It's now Red Room London aka Phillipe Weiss room. Red room paris is no longer listed in Milocco website from what I could find.
If you want more inside here a couple of link:

I'm sure the site is a good resource, I'm also sure Miloco does not list every studio in Paris or is it as up to date on the state of affairs as the people who live and work in the city everyday...plus the OP hasn't even checked back in to help guide the process.

Having people just throw out a bunch of studio names with no specifics (because no specific info was given) is akin to blindly choosing a facility off the internet and I thought the idea of asking here was to get suggestions based on some level of inside/intimate knowledge of the facility.

It’s just a commercial mix room. It’s not Weiss’s room, he just owns some of the gear. But that’s beside the point.

I worked for Miloco for many years. When they take a place on, they do their research. Any studio on their site is verified as a quality place. I’d trust their judgement as if it were a colleague. Not meant to be exhaustive - just a suggestion as to a resource.

I thought there was enough initial info to make suggestions, and with the OP being a mod I’m guessing he’ll be back..

Like I said, you're limited to only Miloco studios which i'm sure does not include most or all the possibilities in a city the size of Paris.

From the experience of doing this a number of times for people in different cities I asked some additional questions that can narrow the suggestions and make them more relevant..."good commercial spot with high end mics, but obviously doesn't need a huge room or massive console." is hardly detailed info for a precise response in my opinion, but whatever.

It’s just my suggestion - three vetted options. The point of the Miloco site is that it takes some of the guesswork out of it.

I don’t know - short of an actual gear list, I thought that was enough to make a decent suggestion.

It’s just a starting point after all.

Studio Saint-Germain (formerly Studio Acousti) is great place. I recorded a jazz band there some years ago. The acoustic of the main recording room is incredible. The mic locker is amazing (at least it was at the time). It's very well situated in the center of Paris with tons of restaurants and bars around. I see they have replaced the big Euphonix with an old Neve. I'd go there !
