A historic church relives as unique music production studios. Step into our temple of soul and have faith that any project you do here will exceed expectations.
In 2005, vintage guitar dealer and collector, Elliot Mechanic, bought a small church in Montreal North and opened the House of Elliot, a sanctuary for music built on creativity. He brought in his eclectic collection of vintage gear – one of the world’s most remarkable –, added some new musts then called on a couple of musical masterminds to hold down the fort. After undergoing major renovations, the studios are now ready to welcome new artists and projects.
At MECHANICLAND Studios, work with award-winning sound engineers and accomplished musicians to compose, arrange, record, mix and master your music, be it an ad, single demo or world-class recording. Let our team bring out the best in you.
Access one of the most remarkable collections of vintage gear and analogue hardware, along with the latest DAWs and top quality equipment. Record on Klaus Voorman’s 1959 Precision bass, used on John, Ringo and George’s solo albums; or sing into microphones used by Michael Jackson and Shakira, then plug into INXS’ tube mic preamps to make your tracks truly rock. From the 48-channel Euphonix analog mixer with digital control to the purely old school Cadac or Neve consoles (or even through the Studer tape machine!) get just the right sound for each project.
Visually-appealing and rich in ambiance, MECHANICLAND Studios can accommodate up to 100 people, and is the ideal venue for events, film and video shootings...
