Anthony brings a unique blend of technical engineering skill, musical instinct, positive energy and great good humour to his work. He is a most sympathetic and creative collaborator, and played a huge part in making “Loads” the album it is. You come for his ears, but you stay for his heart, soul and guts.
I’ve worked with Anthony Gibney for many years now and can honestly say that I would gladly bring any project to his studio and he would be the first person I would recommend for any recording project.
He has huge experience as a producer and engineer and you will always end up with a top class recording. His attention to detail is second to none but also his demeanour and charisma with clients encourages you to keep returning again and again, as I do!
We had a great time working with Anthony Gibney in Audioland Studios. Having been in plenty of studios over the years, big and small,- this one had the Goldilocks factor for us: It’s just right. State of the art software and hardware, beautiful vintage guitars, grand piano, all sorts of bits and pieces and a great cup of coffee. By far, the best asset though, is Anthony himself. He is supportive and challenging, a great listener but with strong, clear ideas of his own, a leader that’s a team player, a facilitator of bands. He was essentially our 12th man on the pitch. Extremely competent in his medium, he has those other traits you need: creativity, flexibility, patience and humour. We could not recommend him highly enough and we look forward to recording our next album in Audioland.
I cannot explain the attention to detail that Anthony gave to my music which led to it sounding better than I could imagine! His insight into vocals is phenomenal and he pushed me to do better when he knew I could! I can’t thank Anthony enough so am recommending him to anyone who will listen!
He also generally has a decent stash of chocolate biscuits for when the sugars get low….clearly an essential for anyone recording 😉
I worked with Anthony at Audioland while putting the finishing touches to my current album. I started by using him as a sounding board, progressing to doing some additional engineering and in the end mixing five of the tracks. A sound set of ears and a masterful touch as recording and mixing engineer.
Anthony Gibney is such an all-round sound person. He has knowledge in audio engineering, mixing and producing.
The studio caters perfectly for band or singer-songwriter recordings. He has a various array of mics for vocals/guitar/drums that he tests extensively before recording. From pre-production to post-production he thinks with the artist to come up with the best sound and feel for the music. It’s all about the artist and making his/her vision come true.
He also has additional skills in bass, electric/acoustic guitar which really adds to his musicality. Most importantly though, he really understands how important a good and emotional vocal is for the recording and he makes you feel at ease as you record your vocals.
It also helps that Anthony is just very easy-going, patient, kind and fun to be around. He seemed really interested in my work, my influences and that was really the thing I most needed as I approached recording my Debut EP. He puts in the work and effort and really strives for excellence in his work. I think it really paid off on my EP ‘Onward Still’ and I’m so glad to have had him involved.
I can’t wait to work with him again.
The art of recording takes an engineer/producer who you want to spend allot of time with. Who at the end of your project, you are sad to say goodbye to. And who in all probability is now a new best friend. That describes Anthony to a “T”. He has all the technical and musical chops you could ever want, and he takes it up that extra notch by being someone you just want to be around.
Anthony helped create a comfortable and collaborative recording process that allowed the band to quickly find it’s groove. He knew when to push us and when to go with our instincts which helped build trust. The quality of Anthony’s output was exceptional and we look forward to working with him again!
Recording, editing and mixing at Audioland was an exceptional experience; Anthony’s obvious technical skills and experience are complemented by the creative environment he has developed where musicians can relax and produce their best performance (not to mention the stunning grand piano, some lovely guitars and a jazzy organ). From the initial contact to the final mix, Anthony was very flexible and positive and responded quickly to every request, always with helpful and productive suggestions. His rates are extremely reasonable (with no additional charge for more than 100 emails over 15 months : )); I’d recommend Audioland for any recording project that’s looking for a relaxed creative atmosphere, top-notch equipment and second to none production.
Anthony is organised and reliable, two qualities that are hard to find in the industry and to have someone with these qualities batting on your side is imperative for the advancement of any artist’s career. He is a methodical engineer and an innovative producer always willing to experiment with fresh sounds and ideas. As a session musician you can be guaranteed that he will take a full interest in your repertoire, and deliver an on point performance that will more than meet your expectations.
As a voiceover artist I just have to recommend Anthony at Audioland Studios. His knowledge and expertise has secured steady work for me for the last few years. The studio is so welcoming and he spends time making sure you are a happy client. I’ve learnt so much from him and completely trust his decisions. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Audioland Studios is a welcoming and accommodating space for any musician.
The calm, supportive and friendly atmosphere provided by Anthony aids the flow of creativity and allows each musician achieve their full potential, take after take.
Whether you are a singer/songwriter or have a full band (or anywhere in-between!), Audioland is the place to go for professional and high quality recording, engineering and production!
Thanks to Anthony, who has a superb ear and is as close to a perfectionist as you can get without being unlikeable ;). He is very decent and sound and encouraging and good fun and generous with advice, time and tea.
One of the best recording experiences I’ve had. Audioland take every bit of un-tapped creativity from an artist and use it to produce the highest quality recording possible.
A great recording studio, with a relaxed, comfortable vibe. Anthony really knows how to get the best performances from artists. I would thoroughly recommend this space for any project.
To all budding Musicians out there!
Do you need a recording professionally done? Well, look no further than Audioland Recording Studio in Leixlip.
I recently got in contact with Anthony Gibney to see if he could work his magic on one of my original songs, “The Wedding Ballad.” Straight away he put my mind at ease ,and as I am not technically gifted myself, I soon realised that I needn’t have worried. Anthonys attention to detail and sheer professionalism left me feeling confident from the very start. It was lovely to be involved in the process of building my song from something I thought was a lovely ballad, to something absolutely beautiful.
So if there is anybody out there who doesn’t know much about recording, you don’t really have to worry! Anthony’s experience and professional approach is sure to have you coming back time and time again. So don’t keep looking at that half written song or thinking a song you have written isn’t good enough. Why don’t you just give Anthony a call? I did ,You certainly won’t be disappointed!
Anthony is an incredibly skilled and creative guitarist. His parts are well crafted to stand out without taking over. I’d take him on tour in a heartbeat if only he’d move back to the States. My loss is absolutely your gain. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
I had the pleasure of working with Anthony for some of the additional sound recording for my recent documentary “Electoral Dysfunction.” His professionalism, expertise and friendly demeanor made the experience exceptional. We made sure to request him for all subsequent recording sessions. I highly recommend him.
