Stellenbosch University (SUN) Studios


Stellenbosch University Studios are the commercial recording facilities of the Music Department and specialize in the production of music for film and advertisements, as well as commercial classical and popular music albums. Situated 25 minutes from Cape Town International Airport, the historical town of Stellenbosch is known for its wine and breathtaking scenery and is home to about 25 000 students. Various scores for internationally released films have been recorded at SUN Studios.

They are fully equipped for up to 7.1 surround productions and have an in-house symphony orchestra. Due to the permanent availability of gear and musicians they can produce music for advertisements and presentations much faster and at lower budgets than the competition. They also do album productions across many genres, from Grammy-winning artists like Switchfoot and Ladysmith Black Mambazo to classical.

The studio offers vintage analog gear in combination with cutting-edge digital facilities. Extras include tracking in more than one studio at the same time to reduce production costs, as well as providing artists with Pro Tools rigs to facilitate pre-production. They also offer location filming, archiving and transfers, audio restoration, live location recording, mixing / recording for outside broadcast. Since the real thing is always better, they offer string and brass section orchestration and recording on existing tracks. They are also willing to process any of your existing tracks through their analog gear.
