Recording Industry in Canada
There are only a few studios in Canada that specialize in album recording for the music industry and that have the required standards for the international market, Perry Sound Studio is part of this select group of studios These studios have for main clients major record companies such as Sony, Warner, EMI, Universal, etc and artist management companies like SRO, Core Audience etc.
Below is a list of the Canadian studios competing with Studio Morin-Heights in terms of tracking and mixing facilities:
Similar equipment for tracking and same calibre of studio acoustic
Similar equipment for mixing
Studio Mann Heights is equipped with a Solid State Logic (SSL) mixing console This is a standard in the recording industry that only a few studios in Canada offer. Moreover Perry Sound Studio is able to differentiate itself from the other studios based on the following attributes.
Prestigious History: Recording of albums known internationally for more than 27 years
The RESORT Aspect: The Studio was built to receive musical projects of great scope and artists can be accommodated on-site in the Guest House and Cottage
Permanent Technical Support: The Studio has its own team of technicians and engineers present in permanence. Most studios deal with externals and cannot guarantee the same production effectiveness
Included in the assets offered, and at close proximity of the Studio, there is a Guest House which provides luxury accommodation for artists during recording sessions The house can accommodate seven to 10 people, with six bedrooms (four of which have private bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi, one with a large oval bathtub). The house also includes a living room with masonry fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room. The house is equipped with an alarm system, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, central vacuum, and an emergency lighting system. The house sits on a 76 882 square feet (1.76 acres) land by the side of the lake.
Adjoining the Guest House, is a self-contained home for up to two guests. It has a full bathroom and kitchenette and is a favourite with producers who prefer to be apart from the ‘Band House’ or who require special accommodation when the family comes to visit.
A planning study realized for Groupe André Perry in 1988 has shown that the property benefits from a prestigious location in the Morin-Heights municipality and offers a great potential for residential development the current owner never took advantage of that opportunity because they were not interested in real estate development as it is not part of their core operations. The development potential of the land is best explained by the following
• Current land zoning allows for construction of residential units on the totality of the property
• Located in the most important development axis in the Laurentian area, St. Sauveur Morin-Heights
• The development of the road network and the work realized on the road 329 offers an easy access from Montreal and Lachute.
• Adjacent to Morin-Heights ski center and Blue Hill residential development project
• The forest is composed of broadleaf trees permitting to optimize the landscaping of residential plots
• The land constitutes a large natural promontory that offers exceptional views over the Laurentian area.
• The soil characteristics do not present any major constraints for construction
