Welcome to Audio Empire Recording Studio - Halifax, Nova Scotia

What makes Audio Empire so special?

We’re from here…

Since 2002, our 5-room studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia has worked with hundreds of Maritime musicians in genres as diverse as pop, rock, rap, blues, indie, metal, classical, spoken word — and just about everything in between. Some of these recordings have gone on to get distribution deals and sell thousands of copies, or be licensed for use in tv shows. One special project — recorded, mixed and mastered here at Audio Empire — even won an East Coast Music Award (we’re proud of you, Jon!)

…We’ve got gear…

Throughout the past 20+ years, we’ve considered (and re-considered!) every link of our recording chain, critically evaluating and tweaking every element. The result is a top-of-the-line kit, with every piece of gear working in concert to create beautiful, professional, high-end recordings for our artists. We’re especially proud of our ability to mix using real, top-quality analog compression and equalization, in combination with our suite of high-end professional Pro Tools plugins. Combining the latest digital advances with proven, time-tested analogue equipment results in a killer, commercial-grade recording that is rich, musical, and professional.

…And we know how to use it!

A seasoned musician with over 20 years behind the glass, Audio Empire producer/engineer Pierce Rogers specializes in letting the artist to focus on nothing but the music, while he takes care of the details. A skilled producer, with a talent for coaxing the best possible performance from the artist, Pierce is also a trained recording engineer, graduating from the internationally recognized “Golden Ears” program at the Ontario Institute of Recording Technology (OIART) in 2002. Easygoing, positive, and open-minded, Pierce is always willing to try something new to achieve that perfect sound for his artists.

We're proud to offer a welcoming and inclusive studio environment — all are welcome here!
