My band Bus Crash  spent two days at Tsunami Studios last weekend. Ive had the privilege of spending time in great studios in Auckland and in Melbourne, over the past 30 odd years. Tsunami studios was a real surprise. In the middle of nowhere it is jam packed with wonderful gear from the amazing desk right through to an impressive range of mics. David is obviously very experienced and relaxed, whilst Adele is just a joy. I would thoroughly recommend the Studio, its accommodation and the overall experience to any musicians.

Tsunami Sound in Levin, New Zealand did a fantastic job for my band Days of Twelve. We are indeed privileged to have had Dave and Adele work on our songs with us for a great result. Highly recommend you seriously consider them before you pay for expensive options elsewhere.

“Thanks David & Adele – from a studio experience point of view, may I just pass on my thanks to you both for making the first taste of ‘proper music’ for the kids so exciting, and yet so comfortable.
I look forward to bringing more business your way when I get the opportunity”

“I first worked with TMV (Tsunami Sound) studios after winning a free 2 day recording package  for the band through the website. The deal was legit, and the service was incredible. I would definitely go back to Levin to work with Adele and Dave  not only because of the team’s professionalism through and through and Dave’s 30+ years of experience as a Music Producer, which we took on board as he offered great advice and input on our tracks, but also because of how welcome the team made me and the band, Tribalstate feel during our stay there. A big Thank You to the TMV team! I look forward to working with you again in the near future.”

“We recorded a couple of demo tracks with Adele and Dave over a weekend in June. They were fantastic, and we had such a good time! We didn’t have much experience with recording, but they made us feel totally at ease, and they were really patient and positive.
They have a great setup with recording gear in an amazing studio.  It was very professional and comfortable. Dave is a great session musician as well as a recording engineer, and we found him to be super versatile professional and approachable, and he quickly understood the style we were trying to achieve. He also makes the best bread!
Adele is a great communicator. From the initial email till post production, she was prompt, organised and made us feel relaxed and happy. Tsunami Sound Studios is situated in such unique setting with fantastic views, space and heaps of privacy.  It’s pretty hard not to feel inspired out there. We had a great weekend with them, and we came out with a fantastic product which we are really proud of. We will definitely be going back sometime in the future.”

“Recording at Tsunami Sound Studio’s was awesome, great professionalism, knowledge, help and good times. It wasn’t just a trip to a studio, it was an amazing experience and we all had a blast. Working with Dave, Adele, and a huge amount of mixing desks, mic’s and flashing lights was something I would recommend to any band, no matter what genre of music. We were made to feel so welcome, we didn’t want to leave! There is no place in the world like Tsunami Sound Studio’s!”

“Our band (Karmaberry) was lucky enough spend a weekend recording at Tsunami Sound/TMV Studios recently. We arrived on the Friday night and were warmly welcomed by Adele and David despite the late hour. We had a very comfortable stay at the studio accommodation and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and beauty of the spacious grounds and lush greenery. We were extremely impressed with the studio setup and the professionalism and knowledge shown by both David and Adele, while at the same time really enjoying their hospitality and warmth. Our entire seven piece band was made to feel welcome and there was room for everyone. The Tsunami Sound team did an awesome job with the tracks we recorded and we were extremely impressed with the results. We are already planning our return to the studio for another weekend’s recording and intend to continue coming back for future recordings. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the studio and the team for the wonderful environment and hospitality as well as the professional results.”
