about

Siamo a Genova, in campagna e poco sopra il mare.
Ci occupiamo di registrazione, mixaggio e mastering (anche on-line), arrangiamenti e produzioni musicali, colonne sonore originali, jingle pubblicitari, musiche per videogiochi, spot e cortometraggi, librerie di sample e loop, doppiaggi, voice over, audiolibri e sound design.
Attraverso il nostro studio mobile registriamo i concerti  live e li finalizziamo in studio con mix e mastering.
Abbiamo maturato molta esperienza e siamo in grado di dare il giusto suono alla musica che registriamo, non abbiamo un target ma ci piace il concetto dello studio di registrazione di una volta, dove si facevano i dischi, qualsiasi essi fossero.
Passiamo dalla musica elettronica a tutte le sfumature del rock, alternative, psichedelico, acustico e indie, dal funk al jazz, dalla canzone d’autore al soul.
Collaborano con noi videomakers, fotografi,  grafici, illustratori e musicisti, assieme a loro siamo in grado di fornire un servizio completo, dalla pre-produzione all’arrangiamento,  fino alla stampa del disco, passando dalla creazione dell’artwork del CD e vinile, al video clip e photo backstage.
Organizziamo corsi di doppiaggio, workshop e seminari e offriamo la nostra struttura per riprese di video clip e photo shooting.

We are based in the peaceful Genoa countryside and not far from the Mediterranean sea.
Our activities include recording, mixing and mastering (also online); arrangements and musical productions; original soundtracks and advertising jingles; music for video games, commercials and short films; libraries of samples and loops; dubbing and voice over; audiobooks and sound design . We are also equipped with a mobile studio with which we record live concerts and then we ultimately finalize the production, mixing and mastering in EL FISH’s main studio.
Through the experience that we have developed over the years we are able to provide the right sound to the music that we produce and record. We believe in the age old concept of ‘the recording studio’, i.e. that making a record, no matter the genre, is a passion from concept to mastering.
Our versatility is expressed in our ability to move from electronic music to all shades of rock, alternative, psychedelic, acoustic and indie, and from funk to jazz, and singer songwriter to R&B and soul.
We collaborate with videographers, photographers, graphic designers, illustrators and musicians to provide a complete spectrum of services to our valued customers. Our service encompasses pre-production arrangement to the release of the disc. We are also able to create artwork for the CD or vinyl, as well as video clips and backstage photographs.
Other services include: courses in over dubbing; workshops and seminars; and our facilities have also been used for doing photo – or video – shoots.

Control room (35Mq)  – Studio 1 ( 50Mq) – Studio 2 (14Mq) – Amp booth (2,5Mq) – Relax room (100Mq).

EL FISH si estende su una superficie totale di 270 Mq. Lo studio è formato da una regia centrale e due sale di ripresa, una per voci, doppiaggi e speakeraggi ed una  per le riprese di batteria, piano, strumenti acustici, cori e registrazioni live.
Lo studio dispone di 60 connessioni microfoniche a parete e permette di registrare un totale di 32 canali audio simultaneamente, con preamplificatori e convertitori di alta qualità.
E’  interamente cablato con linee ethernet che trasportano il segnale audio al sistemi di monitoraggio in cuffia, che ogni musicista controlla con il proprio mixer attraverso 16 canali indipendenti. Sempre tramite ethernet avviene il trasporto del segnale video su schermi TV LCD per i doppiaggi.
La sala relax è provvista di cucina, frigo, internet, stereo hi-fi  e mini ping pong.

EL FISH recording studio extends over a total area of 270 square meters. The studio has a central control room and two recording rooms, one for voices, dubbing and voice-overs and other for drums, piano, acoustic instruments, choirs and live recordings.
The studio is equipped with 60 microphone wall connections and can provide 32 channels of simultaneously recording, with high quality preamps and converters. Ethernet lines carry the audio signal to the headphone monitoring systems, which every musician controls with their own mixer through 16 independent channels. The Ethernet lines also transport video signals to the LCD TV screens for the dubbing services.
The ‘chill out’ room is equipped with a kitchen, fridge, internet service, a stereo hi-fi system and a mini ‘ping pong’ table, for those relaxing moments after a hard day’s work.
