Well, here’s a little introduction to ourselves and our studio.................

Temptation Studio was originally established in Galway as West One Recording Studio in 1985. It covers 2000 sq. feet encompassing a large control room and 2 recording rooms, both visible from the control room. Pat Neary, who had worked in the studio since 1986, finally took it over in 1992. The studio has gone through several upgrades in the last few years, going from a 16-track analogue to 24-track digital recording studio. In 1997 Pat formed a partnership with John O’Shaughnessy, upgraded the studio further and changed the name to Temptation Recording Studio. The studio now supports many new forms of digital recording and sound processing such as sampling and has extensive MIDI facilities.

Our main service offered up until recently was selling recording time. The facility caters for 24 track digital recording with a good array of sound processors, reverbs, effects, compressors, gates, exciters etc.. Post production is aided with computers, samplers, hard disk recorders. Complete MIDI and synchronisation options are available. We have both digital and analogue high-end tools for mastering and editing.
Since the end of 1996 we have been offering soundtrack recording and composition for film, TV and broadcasting. This has developed from the use of sampling techniques, MIDI sequencing, digital sound banks of instruments and sound effects, and the studio’s access to session musicians. We have brought out a Demo tape as an indication to what we can offer. This tape was sent at that time to producers around Ireland.
In 1998 to 1999 we recorded the voices for a 26 episode animated TV series for MAGMA FILM Productions. We assisted in the casting of american voice actors and director.
These services also extend themselves to advertising and multimedia

The Studio also supports Secret Music Ltd., a small Galway based production company for local artists with it’s focus on modern rather than traditional music.

Finally, Temptation Recording Studio is the only established studio operating in Galway city and its environs.
