"What's happening ? This console is happening -that's what!" -Tony Platt

At the heart of the studio, our Neve 5088 Shelford edition will give your songs the sound they need. The new 5088 console, equipped with 5051 and 5052 compressor and mic pre-amp modules, of which  Rupert Neve claims to be the best pre-amps ever built, offers an incredibly great sound. The desk has been completely designed by Mr. Neve himself.  Its single-sided circuit topology and transformer-coupled inputs and outputs produce 10dB more headroom and an incredibly great dynamic range.

Centered around the console you'll find a great choice of outboard gear, ranging from vintage to state-of-the-art equipment.

"Thanks for the nice days! - Bettie Serveert"

We think it is very important that musicians feel at home during their session at DAFT Studios. A good vibe is at least as important as the technical facilities.

That's why during your session you will stay in our marvellous Artist Penthouse on top of the studios, offering incredible views on the surrounding forrests. On entering the house you walk straight into a warm lounge area. At the left of the lounge, you'll find a completely equipped kitchen with kitchen stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and all the mod cons.

Next to the lounge area there is a dinner room. Feel free to ask about our catering provisions if you don't feel like cooking!

Next you'll find four double bedrooms. Next to the bedrooms are 2 bathrooms for shared use. Bed and bath linen are provided for you.
You will see that our artist lodge is really the ideal place to relax after a day's work at the studio!

"Top Studio! Enjoyed it!" -Productiehuis De Mensen

Need some fresh air during your session? Walk out of the studio and into the woods...

The Ardennes, with its acres of forests, rolling hills, nature reserves and ancient stone buildings has a certain charm to it. The natural beauty and possibilities for outdoor pursuits - including Belgium's only ski resort- make it a popular tourist attraction. It also happens to be home to the thriving residential DAFT recording studios.

The studios lay amidst forests and hills. Even from the recording hall, you get a stunning view on surrounding nature.
