Thundabird Studios

Neil Benjamin – Engineer, Producer

Thundabird Studios in Cape Town, South Africa was established in March 2014. The studio was built mainly as a postproduction facility for the advertising industry but can accommodate band recordings too. Neil Benjamin is the head engineer and producer that's widely influenced by Theo Crous and Brendyn Rusti Russouw.

Amongst some other high quality hardware the studio is equipped with Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56, Focusrite Octopre MK 2 Dynamic and Focusrite ISA TWO for our A Class Mic Pre's. Well, and since March 2014 Thundabird studio works on EVE SC207 monitors.

When Neil was asked what he thinks about the SC207 he pointed out: "The SC 207's kick ass. I love the custom settings one is able to adjust depending on your room and where the speakers are placed for optimum results. Very clear, unbiased reference speakers."

The current album of Chris Werge is the first project done with the EVE's in Thundabird studio. Chris is a young indie-folk singer-songwriter from Cape Town. Inspired by the likes of John Mayer, Mumford & Sons and Death Cab for Cutie, his music tells a unique story that will leave one feeling inspired and encouraged.

"The SC 207's kick ass. [...] Very clear, unbiased reference speakers."

Neil Benjamin

Neil Benjamin comments on the SC207: "So far it's been brilliant. The EVE's portray a lot high end information and this has helped us considerably with mic choice, especially when mic'ing up overheads and hats. They are rock solid speakers capable of carrying quite a load when required to. They're also very clever speakers, in the sense that that have safety's built in to tell you that they're working a bit too hard to avoid one from damaging the units."

Thundabird studio is known for putting people at ease. Neil's experience is that when the tones are perfect, the sends just right and the mixes great, people tend to fall into the music. Apart from that, getting into the music with the musicians also helps and this usually happens in pre-production. It just helps the musician feel that you're more than just a dude tracking them.

When Neil was asked what his favourite part of recording process is and why he answered: "Any part that requires us to get a good tone, so I guess getting the source right. Getting the microphones set up right, using the right microphones for the job and generally just getting a killer tone. That always blows my mind. I also really enjoy the pre-mix process where the music starts coming together into a song."

Thundabird Studio expects to wrap first album at the end of August 2014 (Chris Werge) and want to then get cracking with post work for the Ad and Film market. And, of course if anyone is keen to come track then the nice folks at Thundabird studio are happy to assist. Just .
