Hey, this is Athletic Sound!
If you need a studio with great sound, top equipment and experienced, friendly staff, then you need Athletic Sound.
Founded in 1983 by renowned producer Kai Andersen (Dr Kai) and tucked away in the Norwegian town of Halden, Athletic Sound is located in an 18th century school building in the heart of the town.
Athletic Sound is a studio that nurtures the analogue values, and welcome the modern recording era. We just opened our brand new control room for our clients, built after the highest specifications for professional recording studios. We built our new control room around a SSL 4000G, a 40channel console supported by a large number of new and vintage equipment. We also still have the option to track on tape, with a OTARI MTR90 MkII– see our equipment list for further details
Producers and artists all love working here (you can see what they say), the environment is relaxing and the sound created and captured is truly unique.
We also offer overnight stay in our studio apartment, located 125 meters from the studio entrance, that can accommodate up to 8 people.
The apartment is placed in the city center with walking distance to all facilities.

Halden is 120km outside Oslo, close to the Swedish border , making it an ideal location for artists wanting to immerse themselves in a relaxing, professional environment.
What people say about Athletic:
“…when when I entered the building for the first time, I felt like I’d been working there for longer.
It’s a wonderfully comfortable place that added a wonderful vibe to my record.
The gear is all top notch and the staff were indispensable”JOHN AGNELLO, PRODUCER
