Dedicated To All Things Heavy

Founded in 2015 by producer Maxime Lacroix (Blind Witness), the House of Gain Studio specializes in recording, mixing & mastering rock and metal music.



Pre - Production

The goal in pre-production is to take your music to the highest level. Whether you need help finishing your songs, lyrics, or only need a second set of ears, pre - production is where the magic happens.  


Old Recorder école

During the recording phase, I will guide you through every step of the process showing you ways to optimize your playing in a recording setting . With meticulous attention to detail, I will make sure that we get the best possible takes and the most amazing tones. 


Mixing is where your music comes to life. Whether you have recorded here, at a different studio, or at home, I will turn your raw recordings into powerful, polished - sounding tracks.

Mastering is the last step of the recording process. During said process, I will make sure that your music translates well through any type of listening sytem and environment.

"Never had that much fun recording at a recording studio. Max is more than a producer, he's an additional member of your band that focuses on making your music sound like it's supposed to. The studio is also very nice and comfortable. Recording your next project there will bring your band to the next level."
