Gear for Success


One of the most important factors for any great recording is having the right choice of microphone. Sandbox Studio offers an extraordinary collection of 150 microphones, 30 preamps, 20 processors (compressors, equalisers, distortion boxes), all of which is analogue hardware.

The hardware found at Sandbox Studio includes some of the greatest recording equipment in history, with legendary names such as: Neumann, Neve, SSL, Sony, Universal Audio, Focusrite and Trident Audio Developments, just to mention a few.

In addition to having a great sounding microphone collection, preamps and a noiseless iso booth, we provide online recordings via source connect which provides a direct and latency-free hi-res stream connection to 50,000 studios worldwide. With source connect, the talent and studio are no longer dependent on their physical location.

Through Sandbox Studio you can now record from anywhere in the world, with highly sought-after recording equipment which does not exist anywhere else in New Zealand. And there is more, because making the most expensive gear available to everyone wouldn’t be true unless it’s also affordable to everyone.

Sandbox Studio is a proud supporter of the local music scene, and as such Sandbox Studio offers highly competitive artist rates, package deals and affordable VO rates, which finally makes great sounding recordings available and affordable for everyone.
