Recording studio with dedication for independent music

HoboRec was founded in 2004, in Jönköping, Sweden, straight out of the D.I.Y. scene to provide the possibility for local bands to record songs at a humane price. Even though the years have passed and our production list grew to a couple of hundred, from both swedish and international acts, the roots are still intact.

HoboRec Studio

Founded in 2004 by Ulf Blomberg and Björn Isaksson, both members of the hardcore band Grace.Will.Fall. The idea was to have equipment for the band to record their own stuff but also to help out other local bands to make demos and such. The idea is still to be an afordable yet professional alternative for all kind of bands, even though it's been mostly punk, metal and rock. Björn is still a part owner of the studio but it's mostly operated by Ulf.

The Studio

Ulf Blomberg

Always had a strong Do It Yourself nerve and a playful interest for technical stuff. Started to play guitar at the age of 13, and quickly gained curiosity for recording. In the beginning I recorded Sound-on-Sound style with two tapedecks. The decks ran at different speed so the guitar had to be retuned after each take. After that I moved on with a 4 track recorder and eventually leard how to use Qubase and sequenser software. During the years I've been in a couple of bands, made a bunch of records, and toured the majority of Europe. Tried a couple of different jobs but always seem to come back to the studio and recording. I also took the time to get a university education in Music & Sound Production. Eventually the techincal curiosity came to benefit as I began building my own gear. To sum it up, I really love what I do and always try to dedicate fully into each and every project. Cheers!

Recording can be provided at the studio in Jönköping, Sweden, or basicly in any other studio. I've been doing recordings in a handfull of studios, mostly in Sweden but also in Europe.

Mixing

If you already have your tracks recorded and need help mixing you're also very much welcome! I take on every mix job individually with an suitable approach. A lot of times I like to transfer digital recordings to the 24 track tape machine to apply some special souce and soul. Depending on budget the mix can be done all analog or ITB (in the box), or why not a hybrid. During the process you get up to three revisions, so you'll have the oppurtunity to give full feedback and have corrections made. If you want to, mastering is also included when hiring me for mixing.


I usualy give a flat rate for a mix, based on the complexity of the material. Contact me, let me have a look at the material and I'm sure we'll figure something out.

EP: 3 000 - 4 000 SEK

Live in studio session, with video

If you want the perfect promotion material to show bookers, labels, fans etc... this is a great deal! You spend a day or an afternoon with me in the studio where we set up your stuff to record live in one room. You play your one or two best songs while I record the sound and shoot a bunch of video angles. After this I mix the songs and edit the video material to deliver a live video from the studio. This is a really great way to promote your material in a true and honest way.


Standard: 4 000 SEK
