The production process is focused and refined from years of releases, preparation of the song structure, tones, sounds and preparation of the performers and instruments involved. You will receive advice on what is going to work best for your recording to ensure the best performance and sound possible and to make sure you get what you need from the production.



Over the years, we have collected a glorious collection of analog outboard gear (compressors, pre amps and eq's), along with guitars, guitar amps, bass amps, pedals, effects, tape delays, keyboards, drum kits and percussion among other musical gear. Although sometimes a simple clean 'natural' sounding recording may be more suitable for your music Serotonin has the tools on hand to expand your sonic palette however you choose.

Every one of us working at Serotonin have a deep appreciation of the amazing music that has been written in human history. Our producers reach into this history to apply tried and true ideas which help deliver great songs.
