Sound & Music

Algarve Sound & Vision is a fully equipped recording studio close to Lagos. We offer music recording, mixing, mastering, consultation, and a label for digital releases.

What can ASV do for me as a musician?

Algarve Sound & Vision combines many areas of music production and marketing under one roof. Music of any kind can be recorded and produced in the fully equipped recording studio. ASV can also take care of subsequent editing, mixing and mastering.

If you wish, we can also take care of the album artwork and liner notes. For the digital release of the finished album, we offer a label service, which is especially interesting for street musicians. Of course we can take pictures of you, your concerts, or do videos for your songs.

Furthermore, we can do things like streaming concerts with ticked selling in advance, sending newsletters to your fans, administrating your website, and doing all the things you don’t really want to be bothered with as a creative musician.

In case you have your own homestudio we offer hearing sessions and audio consultation that enables you to progress with your own music and creativity.

Let’s work together!

The recording studio close to Lagos will be rebuilt in 2023/24 to be the perfect recording space for the Steinway & Sons grand piano. But you do not have to wait until then. The studio is fully operational and has enough space for recording a quintet band in one room.
ASV has a mobile UAD Apollo recording setup with 8 to 32 channels. So if you have a good sounding room, we are prepared for almost any recording situation.

A recording studio in Lagos?

The studio is equipped with various instruments like keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and percussion, some amps, all ready to be played and used during the recording session. It is a great place to let the creativity flow.

What atmosphere does the studio have?

The ASV studio is a pressure-free creative environment where artists can feel confident stepping outside their comfort zone. We keep attendees limited so every creator can express themselves in their own, uninterrupted way. Artists’ comfortability in the studio is a top priority, giving them a space to explore new paths of creativity without judgment.

Audio Consultation Review

“Spent 2 sweet hours with Marc at Algarve Sound & Vision!

So good to hear the mix through his ATC’s as well as the Avantone mixcube! The best was focussing on my weak point…the vocals! Always a challenge for me but Marc gave me some solid pointers and advice on possible remedies.

The track sounded big and full in translation which was quite satisfying. Now I just need to tweak the vocal chain and then re-balance within the mix.

I was so grateful for Marc Mennigman’s experiential input and guidance! I will be back to Algarve Sound & Vision next week, once corrections are done this weekend, for another listen on those beautiful ATC SCM25 A Pro’s.”
