Do you need a proffesional mix and master delievered to you fast? Or do you need real drums played on your song? We got you covered. Whether it's mixing and mastering or getting some real instruments done on your track, proffesionally that is, we can do it for you. Check some of our work out to see what we've done so far.
We offer a hybrid analog/digital studio in the heart of Sweden.
The studio where you’ll be able to get away from your everyday life to record your single, EP or Album in the wonderful Bergslagen.
We’re located in the village of Bångbro, just outside of Kopparberg, 240 kilometers from Stockholm, Sweden.
The studio is a 150 square meter building with a big live room, a smaller vocal booth and the control room.
In direct connection to the studio there’s a kitchen, place to chill and hang out playing video games and the studio is close to nature.
The main gear in the studio is the analog MCI 652 console that were specially made for Sveriges Riksradio (Swedish national radio) in the 1980’s. Alongside the console we have great AD/DA by Universal Audio.
Who is running the studio.
The studio is run by the brothers Mats and Johan Eriksson with the vision of bringing the more analog side to recording back. We also do believe that getting away from your all-day enviroment makes you more creative and gives you more energy to focus on making and recording music.
Mats has over 5 years proffesional experience in the studio and has mixed and mastered as well as played on numerous albums/songs during his career.

Interview with BoomBridge Studios
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most common is that I mix and master songs/albums that are sent to me. On a couple of occasions I also have bands/artists in the studio and produce their album/EP/single as well as mix and master it.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Chris Lord-Alge, Tom Lord-Alge, Sylvia Massy, Steven Slate, Dan Lancaster to name a few.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a hybrid analog and digital setup. My main pre-amps and EQs for recording is my console which is a MCI JH-652 which was custom built for Swedish National Radio in 1982. My conversion to the digital is through two UAD Apollos and a ADAT bridge of the brand Creamware.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends if it's just a song or several. A song usually takes around 8 hours to dial in and get right and then we're on to revisions. A whole album is the same when it comes to the first song and then it usually moves a lot faster once you got the blueprint for the sound.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, in terms of how I usually use effects and build a mix or production. When I do something I do it with all my heart.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Patience. One of the most important things when it comes to production and mixing, or music in general. I've learned the hard way but I take great pride in being patient when it comes to music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hard rock or pop
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have a plan with what you're doing. Think three steps ahead.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Scorpions - cause they're one of my favorite bands. Iron Maiden - cause they still do things the old way. Asking Alexandria - because of their great musicianship. Architects - cause they're just amazing.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've always wanted to have music as my full-time occupation but I've been working on other things on the side up until around 5 years ago when me and my brother started our company. I had still worked a year on my current job then but stopped doing that 4 years ago and the rest is history. The company is a music and event company that we own a the studio with as well as we're doing a lot of rentals and live sound etc. Apart from this we also own a pub in the city the studio is located with our wives, and we have a yearly festival here. So it all started as a music company and turned into something more entrepreneurial.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer - cause of the DAW One of the UAD Apollos - so that I could record My OLLO Audio Headphones - so that I could mix A Shure SM58 - to catch the sources I'd like to record My cellphone - In hope of a signal to either get in contact with someone or just to get surf to sell my dessert island sample pack.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Get in touch and discuss sound before you get me to work, cause we all hear things differently and something you might want to sound one way is something I'd make sound another way. So this is important if there's a deadline to work toward. Deadlines are important to discuss when the project is larger. This is something that usually is a problem otherwise. Just name a date when the work needs to be done and we'll work towards that.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's the deadline? Do you have a reference for the sound you're looking for?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I'm angry cause I look like it when I think. I hardly angry at all at any time, I'm just annoyed about stuff at times - which hardly has something to do with any other person.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Customer: Would this be possible? Me: Well, of course!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That every song is unlike the one before. The fact that music differs and it's not the same all the time, which is important to be to stay focused as well. A normal job is usually very static and I'm just not that kind of person. I love the diversity of working with production, mix and master.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: We'll keep at it until you're satisfied.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. The both have great qualities. During recording I always use the analog console as well as as much outboard I possibly can, cause I usually have a vision for the recording. During mixing I use mainly my DAW, but at some occassions I'll use the outboard gear or just the EQs of the desk cause of their sound.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Unfortunately not yet.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I just finished working on the upcoming Jack Moy album, the new degreed album and the new Ike Rann album.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The first EP and the upcoming album with Paralydium, former The Paralydium Project, and I'm proud cause I was pushed to the limit and made the most out of it. The Ep and the album sounds amazing.
