Welcome to 604 Studios

Located in the headquarters of noted Vancouver independent record label 604 Records, 604 Studios is a new state-of-the-art recording facility professionally designed to accommodate the new music business. Four studios and a soundstage can be used separately or in combination to produce sound recordings, videos and other visual content, as well as to broadcast live stream events to multiple platforms.

At the heart of the studio is the legendary SSL 4048E ‘Little Mountain’ 48 channel analogue console with total recall, famously used on recordings by Motley Crue, Aerosmith and Bon Jovi among others, as well as a full complement of outboard gear and microphones. Although only recently opened, the studio has already produced multiple gold and platinum records. The soundstage is fully outfitted with professional lighting and power sources and has been used for music videos, streaming events, live performances, photoshoots, and audio recording.

Located in the Railtown, which is quickly becoming the heart of the entertainment industry in Vancouver, 604 Studios is positioned to be a creative hub for years to come.
