Kevock Digital Recording Studio is in Lasswade, just south of Edinburgh. It's probably best described as a large project studio that punches above its weight. Owned and run by Ian McCalman, the studio takes up two rooms of a stone-built detached cottage with easy parking. Recording at Kevock is very informal and Ian specialises in acoustic music, much of it, traditional, which is not surprising considering his 46 years of experience as a folk musician. The equipment consists of, ADAT HD24, Yamaha 02R recording. Soundcraft/Alesis/Yamaha NS10 monitoring. Microtech Gefell/Rode/AKG/etc microphones. TC Electronics/Lexicon/Antares etc processing and effects. Magix Samplitude 10 software computer mixing. Red book/ISRC mastering etc. Photoshop/InDesign Graphics if needed.

Currently recording, The Linties, Simon Kempston, Stephen Quigg, Stairheid Gossip, Anne Renshaw, Corinne Scott, Robin Laing, Dick Gaughan, Eileen Penman and Graeme Gass. Also, Robin Laing, Dick Gaughan and Eileen Penman are currently recording tracks relating to Scots involvement in the Spanish Civil War (for Greentrax).
