Iguana is a studio for musicians, by musicians. A classic SSL console, good sound and a flexible ‘make it happen’ attitude make Iguana Studio a no-brainer.
In all of my years working in various studios, there is that tense moment when you leave with a finished piece of music hoping its sounds as good as it did in the studio… Iguana Studios is a rare example of a great sounding room from beginning to end… what you hear there is what you get walking out, one of my favorite mix rooms anywhere.
I have just recently finished recording vocals at Iguana Studios for my latest solo disc. This is the third album I have recorded here and once again the experience was top notch. Vic Branco has always provided me with the best and most comfortable environment enabling me to stay focused on business at hand… recording. The facility provides you with state of the art technology along with the proper design necessary to accomplish the best results when all is said and done. There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue to record at Iguana for as long as I am active within this unique and blessed vocation. Hope your dreams are realised and success is yours.
When it comes to recording on the best equipment, in the best environment, Iguana Studios is simply...'THE BEST' ! Working with Iguana on several projects over the years has been incredibly rewarding simply put a top notch facility!
Iguana is a recording studio unlike any other. It is a shining example of what the best recording studios on the planet comprise and because of this, maintains its reputation as one of the most enjoyable environments in which to work and be creative. As a guitarist, the biggest point of contention for me in any studio is the ability of the staff and equipment to deliver a faithful representation of my sound from my guitar to the ears of the listener. When I'm at Iguana, sonic obstruction is something I never have to worry about and, in turn, allows me to dig deeper and demand more of myself creatively. This quality is rare and often absent from most major recording studios I encounter, despite how much gear the studio may have. It is the reason I always find myself back in the live room at Iguana time and time again.
Vic, you have one of the greatest recording facilities in the world. It's so New York, hip engineers, clandestine and cool and you are wonderful to hang with and bring such good vibes to the place!!! I always play my best at Iguana, always!!!! Thank you Vic, really and deeply. xo
From recording in the actual studio, learning the SSL and outsourcing work, Iguana has gone above and beyond what needs to happen to get results. They are one of the easiest studios to work with in every aspect of the word. From top gear to the world's next amazing engineers Iguana is the real deal!
Recording 5 songs in 2 days at Iguana was a pleasure - the gear was reliable and of utmost quality - not to mention an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful staff who brought extra creativity and amazing vibes to the table. What could have been an incredibly stressful couple of days ended up being very productive, positive sessions which were very conducive to rock, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results!
Iguana is the only serious rock mix room in Toronto. Absolutely my first choice
I have been working with Iguana in just about every capacity in this industry. As a member of the band Not By Choice, my first record was mixed here, and now as a Manager, I have full confidence in sending my clients to work there. Very few studios offer the consistently great results that Iguana can. From load-in to printing the final product, my experiences at Iguana have all been fantastic.
Iguana Studios has taken recording music to the next level. The professional staff and environment create a one of a kind recording experience that allows the artist to truly shine. My music has come alive with help and development from Vic Branco and Tal Vaisman. It is an honour and privilege to work with Iguana Studios.
Iguana has always been my go to studio to mix when I’m in Toronto. Great desk, great staff
The professional atmosphere, coupled with helpful staff and world class recording equipment made my experience at Iguana studios a delight. The warm tones of the room, and welcoming ethos are just the type of environment needed for recording excellence
Iguana Recording is world class for recording in Canada. They have a pleasant staff, organic, and comfortable environment, very down to earth. Iguana Recording supports the fast growing “Indie Market” which is key in today’s unique and well-educated rein of artists of this era. Vic Branco runs a one stop shop, bringing some very polished networked professionals into the environment for a complete satisfied product.
Iguana went well above and beyond production expectations. I always felt relaxed, never “watching the clock”, and whatever a song needed to make it come alive was done with no hesitation. I left with an album with production that was nothing short of world-class.
In my almost 20 year music career, Iguana Studios is the only recording studio I have ever trusted to give me the exact recording results I am looking for, every time. Vic has put his heart into the place - you can feel it in between every wall, every fader and every piece of hardware in those rooms. Thank you for all the incredible music memories. I eagerly await my next 20 years with you.
I made my band's first record at Iguana over ten years ago, and two things are for sure: this place has massive VIBE and a larger than life sound that crushes, every time! I love making records here and your band will too!
Our experiences with Iguana have always been nothing short of spectacular. The facilities are world class and their staff have always been professional and helpful in bringing out the best in our artists.
Iguana Studios is truly an Artists' Heaven. The team there are all musicians with valuable insights and great vibes. It's a creative environment that really brings out the best performance using top-of-the-line gear. No distractions, just music! They really take an interest in the long-term success of their clients and are willing to go the distance for great art!
Great value at Iguana and even more importantly people who really care about music and are willing to go above and beyond what’s asked
We have been producing records at Iguana studios on a regular basis for a while, and we never leave unsatisfied. The equipment selection is second to none, as is the professionalism. A very accurate and nice-sounding live room, great mic selection and one of the most pleasant working environments in the Toronto Area.
Iguana Studios was perfect for what we needed. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere was isolated and secluded when necessary, and open and casual when wanted; very easy-going. Our stay was short and sweet, but I definitely see myself working there again soon.
I've had the pleasure of working at Iguana Studios with my band Fallen Heirs a number of times over the past few years. The wonderful, like-minded staff make for a relaxing experience in what can sometimes be stressful times. With competitive pricing, the studio comes equipped with a wide range of professional gear suitable for all genres of music. Iguana has everything needed to ensure you leave with nothing but the highest quality of sonic boom and gets my vote every time without a doubt.
Iguana feels like home from the second you walk in. I wouldn’t be the musician I am today without the time I’ve spent recording at this studio. Iguana has helped me shape my identity as an artist.
Iguana was the biggest studio I ever recorded a record at the time, and the vibe was, and always is INCREDIBLE. I find myself counting the days before I'm able to go back! Always a pleasure working at iguana.
