About Protosleep


Making music since 2012

Here we create records, edit audio, score films, and mix & master projects from our home in Torbay, Newfoundland.

The studio is engineered by Terry Barrow. By day Terry is employed as an engineer creating signal processing software. On evenings and weekends he works with protosleep clients on various projects.


Recording


Live Room

Our custom built live room has been carefully planned to optimize acoustics. It has several absorborers and diffusors carefully placed to get the most out of our cozy space.


Control Room and Meeting space

A great recording starts with a great performance, so we have created a space that allows the artist to focus on the performance, not the proceedure. We have removed "the glass" and created an open working space where artists can feel comfortable. Our clients always say they feel like they are performing in their living room while working here.


Hours

We record after 7pm on weekdays and after 10am weekends


Rates

$30 per hour.
