Welcome to the largest and the most legendary studio in Finland!




  • Finnvox
  • Diary

Finnvox, the maternity ward of Finnish rock, based in Pitäjänmäki, Helsinki since 1965 – has been around longer than any other institution in Finnish music business. Studios come and go, only Finnvox remains. This proves that things have been done right. We are the pioneer of technical development and for that reason our clientele list reads like a “Who’s Who” of popular music in this country. In the industry that is currently undergoing a strong downtrend it is important to be observant, to be reactive, to have expertise, know-how and skills and, before all, to have courage – we have. That’s why we are not only good but the best!

Summer News from Finnvox

Summer News from Finnvox

The fine tuning and trimming of the new Nightwish album will be soon over. Holopainen, Kinnunen and Karmila got all the tracks of the forthcoming Imaginaerum mixed and several test masterings have been done during summertime. In the end of May we had a listening session at Finnvox together with the band (without Anette), Karmila, Kinnunen and Stobe Harju & Petri Alanko working on the movie score. Tuomas brought some champagne and Finnvox took care of some salty and sweet snacks. There will be still some work with instrumental-, orchestral- and surround versions, and “stop press” ...

Mika Jussila on the red carpet of Cannes!

The annual Midem Music convention 2011 held in Cannes, France was my seventh participation in a row. Although it is nice to leave the cold, snow and darkness behind and travel to the sunny and warm Riviera, I feel it's also important to take part in promotion, marketing and sales of Finnish popular music abroad organized by Music Export Finland. By participating I announce the seriousness of the intent of Finnvox to expand its international business and sales and also spread our customer base beyond our national borders. The Midem Music convention is a great opportunity to meet inte...

Guinness -feel free to contact Mika! Same time listed metal-, heavy- and hard rock album masterings has reached number 900.

FULLY RENEWED STUDIO F

FULLY RENEWED STUDIO F

The renevation of studio F lasted almost whole spring, so no wonder the outcome is breathtakingly stylish and inspiring working environment. The cozy leningradesque, sea-chic design was created by sound designer Antti Murto. We expanded the recording room and for those who are looking for dry vocal sound we came up with an echoless standalone unit that´s dryer than British humour! The technology in the control room was almost entirely renewed too. So the dear old SSL console got shipped to Sweden, to the new studio of metal wonder In Flames. Finnvox wishes lots of success a...

DURACELL-TUUNELA

Recording and mixing engineer-producer Arto Tuunela has lately been busier than ever before. He has worked with such names as Downstairs, HIM, Bedwetters (Estonia), Eilera (France) Ancara and Kastor in addition to recording several voicebooks for Otava. Tuunela also made two record deals. In September his band Major Label released ”...And the Machines will never wake us” album for Elements Music. This record represents the darker, rougher, metallic side of Tuunela. Quite different album ”Meteoriitti”, by his one-man-collective Pariisin Kevät, sees the daylight at SonyBMG in February ...
