About Us

What We Do

DSC_0045We work both as musicians and audio professionals to help make good sounding records. We love to experiment with equipment from the distant past, present, and future to achieve new and interesting sounds through both digital and analogue recording formats. Past projects have included anything between mixing previously recorded material to working with musicians to help them produce their project from the ground up. We have access to a large variety of talented musicians for all budgets and styles. Acadia continues to collaborate with community members by supporting local music events including the 48 Hour Music Festival and Damnationland.

Acadia also works closely alongside Pat Keane of Pat Keane Mastering (PKM).
