Founded by Lars Nilsson, a former professional trumpet player, the studio specialises in acoustic jazz and classical orchestras, as well as producing mixes from location recordings.
The studio offers changeable acoustics; its main live room can be converted into four smaller rooms, including two Iso Booths, to give a total of six recording spaces. This enables it to transform from a big-band environment into a room suitable for a choir, a piano trio or a soloist.
Nilento also boasts three separate control rooms to provide more options: one is an analogue room outfitted with a stereo pair of Genelec 1030 monitors, while another is a digital recording room with a stereo pair of 1031s.
The main control room is designed for mixing Dolby Atmos, featuring a Genelec 7.1.4 Smart Active Monitoring system calibrated with GLM software.
