 A.M.E. Recording Studio was built from the ground up with music in mind. We offer full music production, recording, mixing mastering, and composing. As well, we can assist you with co-writing, arranging and pre-production all the way to recording, mixing and mastering the final product. We have been in business for over 12 years, and have maintained both our affordability and our reputation as an established, well equipped facility in the Canadian music scene. 

TRACKING FOR HOME BASED RECORDINGS

 Another exciting service that we have begun to offer is as a TRACKING STUDIO for your HOME BASED RECORDINGS. If you would like to record the bulk of your project at home on your own home based system (protools , cubase , or ADAT) , we can provide you with world-class sounding bed-tracks that you can take home on an external hard drive. We can provide these tracks in any file format and would be available to mix your project at a later date if necessary. 

LIVE RECORDING

 We are also available to do location/live recording. Please inquire for more information at ame.recording-studio@sympatico.ca. Although music has changed over the years, our work ethic hasn’t. We always keep a commitment to our clients’ goals. This is why artists from the entire spectrum of music choose A.M.E. Studio for their recording. 

Education:

 After studying music at Humber College and studying Recording Arts at Fanshawe College, Andrew Horrocks began working as a full time recording engineer at Kitchener’s Cedartree Studio. Andrew worked at Cedartree for 6 years gaining experience as an engineer, producer and writer. Working with Cedartree owner and renowned Canadian producer Richard Hutt gave Andrew great insight into the recording realm. That experience also gave way to many interesting opportunities. One such opportunity was traveling to Bearsville, New York to work on The Northern Pike’s album “Snow in June.” Besides his experiences working at Cedartree, Andrew has traveled to Europe on three separate occasions to Engineer and Produce. In 1994 Andrew, along with wife Margaret Ellen opened A.M.E.Studio in Kitchener, and things have been busy ever since. 

Artistic Achievements:

 The thing that makes A.M.E. such a great place for artistic growth and expression is the fact that Andrew himself had been a signed recording artist from 1987 to 2001. Understanding the creative side of things as well as the technical side of things is the key. In 1987, Andrew’s band “The Awakening” recorded the first of three internationally released albums. Then with longtime song writing partner Ian Tanner, another four albums were released to a worldwide audience through the band One Hundred Days. These recordings were critically received and provided touring opportunities throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. Now, after having recorded/produced or contributed to the recording of over 150 albums, Andrew brings experience, understanding, creativity, and depth to the recording process. AME is also a Mixing and Mastering Facility.
