Our History

Inspired by a love of music and motivated by a desire to implement their technical prowess, Yianni and Dimitri set up Matrix Studio in 2002. With 15 years’ experience as sound engineers working in the music industry and in television, the co-founders decided to utilize their skills and create a studio which would have high quality equipment and a personalized approach to their craft.

The inspiration for the name of the studio is deeply rooted in the etymology of the Greek word MITRA which also refers to a part of a console. They set about creating a space that is both inviting and technically superior. Careful attention to detail is paid in order to enable a sound-recording experience which is of an outstanding quality. D.M and Y.P focused on creating a Control Room based on the most up-to-date specifications. Having had the experience of researching and designing studios for others, they set about using their expertise to create their own.

By 2004 – in just two years – the studio had an impressive array of equipment including: the Trident B Range, one of twenty ever made, expanding its capabilities and productivity. Two additional analog Tape machines (Studer A820 MCH) completed the 24 channels of the Apogee Converters. Yianni and Dimitri further refined and developed the Control Room by installing a pair of ATC SCM100A as the main monitor system.

Furthermore, the studio boasts a wide selection of microphones, hi end converters, outboard processors and instruments, including a DW drum set and Classic vintage amplifiers. In 2009 the studio was further expanded by adding a second recording room and renovating the ‘meet and greet’ area.

At Matrix studio we understand the importance of establishing a positive, collaborative atmosphere to cultivate your needs. Yianni and Dimitri provide a friendly, well-informed service in a technically advanced studio. The diverse and extensive client list includes artists from a vast array of genres; telecommunication companies; TV channels; Advertising and Marketing companies. For further information do not hesitate to contact the Matrix studio.
