Folk studio

Folk studio, the recording studio of Folk vzw, is a small, cozy studio in Herentals

Contrary to most modern studio's, who prefer a more dry sound, our recording room has been especially built to create a full and warm sound, ideal for accoustic instruments.

In between songs you are welcome to relax in front of the TV, play a boardgame, throw a dart, ping a pong...
For those who travel from afar, our guestrooms are at your leasure.

Our gear

The Folk studio is equipped with high end recording hardware and software, and is being constantly upgraded with new gear.

"Folk Studios is of a very high standard, mainly to the part that Philip Masure is a great engineer and has a great work ethic. Being a musician himself adds to his understanding of the music and a great understanding and respect for the musician.
Without doubt one of the best and hassle free working experience’s you will encounter."

"De studio van Philip is voor mij ideaal om op een ontspannen en efficîënte manier op te nemen.
De grote troeven van studio folk liggen bij mij vooral in het feit dat er heel snel en heel kwalitatief gewerkt wordt. Dat je een fantastische mzuikant achter de knoppen hebt met gouden oren, zowel muzikaal als op gebied van klank. En dat er een heel ontspannen en goede sfeer is.
Ik voel me er enorm op mijn gemak en niets is te veel of lastig. Ook als beginnende muzikant was het fantastich om zo rustig en goed gecoacht te kunnen opnemen. Ik blijf en ben daarom nog steeds ongelooflijk content na mijn 5de cd. De 6de is dus voor binnenkort."

Daithi Rua

Irish Singer and Songwriter

"Having spent a big part of his life as a computer head, Philip Masure has the golden touch when it comes to the technical workings of the “Pro Tools” Digital recording phenomenon. Not only that but his experience as a live musician and purveyor of Some of the best acoustic guitar playing in the folk/dadgad genre makes him and his studio the perfect choice for anyone interested in recording acoustic based music.
Situated in the Heart of the peaceful Flemish countryside his house and his studio have always been open to musicians, amateur and professional alike and thus making you feel completely at home and at ease and ready to create at any time of the day or night.
Don’t take my word for it…ask any folk Musician in Belgium …"
