The history of the recording studio the RSL Production from Novo mesto goes back to the year 1988. In 2000, the new facilities in the new building, which is considered to be the biggest of its kind in Slovenia, were presented to public. It consists of two studio halls and two additional recording rooms. The additional accommodation facility is appealing to all the musicians who desire to fully create their music surrounded by woods and the colourful Dolenjska countryside. The recording equipment has been supplemented and completed all the time, and the new mixing console Solid State Logic SSL 9000 J set a new standard for analogue recording consoles. It combines ultra-high quality analogue electronics with sophisticated digital control and automation to accommodate the evolving needs of modern audio production.
