We’ve created a realm that provides the artist with full, unbound freedom and unequaled comfort. The perfect lighting, aesthetically pleasing interiors, world class and an indepletable supply of positive energy allow us to offer the ideal conditions to record better and achieve more.
The acoustics were designed and the equipment was handpicked by the best people the polish industry had to offer: Roman Bolejko, Tomek Wiśniewski, Roman Oses, Piotr Lupiński.
We’ve amassed top-of-the-line equipment, and then locked it away in our equipment room, so that even the slightest hum doesn’t disturb the ears of the producer. We’ve taken no compromises and have crafted a place, where the only thing that counts is sound. And you can hear it.
a realm that
artist with full,
Thing that counts
is sound. And you
can hear it.
Michał Garstecki - founder Free Fly Music
We have divided the realm that you will be working in into two parts: a control-room and a studio. See what each one has to offer.
The control-room was designed according to the concept of lede (live end dead end), with an area of 25 square meters and a 0.22 second reverberation. You have a fully equipped and thoroughly designed command center at your disposal. All the devices that could disturb you in any way have been moved to the accompanying, yet thoroughly isolated machine room. Thanks to a complex array of sound systems coupled with a set of APS Trinity+APS sub 15 monitors we have achieved the perfect auditory conditions. This enables the creation of the perfect acoustic image, free from the negative influence of room mods. Additionally, we offer an alternative APS Coax monitoring system. We’ve also provided the room with a separate, isolated and screened power supply, working at 110v and 230v. Now everything, including a proper amount of sliders, dials and tons over tons of coffee, is in your hands.
The studio, on the other hand, is a 34 square meter area, detached from its surroundings by a 130db acoustic insulation, manufactured according to box in box technology. Control room isolation is an equal 80db. We’ve achieved a perfect, 0,5 second, reverberation thanks to an acutely tuned setup of resonance sound-absorbing systems coupled with diffusive elements. This allowed us to create within the studio two completely different zones, based on the kind of reverberative response they create.
The “light” zone adds shine and space to instruments and voices, whereas the “dark” zone extracts an unparalleled warmth, proximity and softness. Such a design enables perfectly smooth sound regulation, all depending on the setup of the instruments.
A subtle and perfectly controllable reverberation enriches and complements the natural tone of acoustic instruments and facilitates intonation control. Add to this a multi-point, discreet lighting, noise-free ventilation and an abundance of space for artistic
We believe that great things are created in such conditions. In order to fully register them, we offer you a few spare kilos of useful electronic equipment.

The free fly music studio is great. It has top of the line equipment and a truly amazing production level.
Amazing monitoring conditions, a comfortable control room, great rooms. They can take pride in their space, awesome space!
Very natural sound. A nice cozy, warm studio, you can hear wood in its sound… great job. The guitars and vocals -amazing - world-class microphones.
Free Fly Music – Michał’s personal involvement and professionalism produce a feeling of security and artistic freedom — and this has an undoubted influence on the artistic quality of the recording created under his supervision. And you can always score a substantial amount of ice-cream during a break. to put it brief -- pure pleasure.
Professionalism in a family atmosphere. No stress…
It’s a very pleasant place, a nice – homely atmosphere, large control-room and a spacious recording room. unfortunately, i can’t remember the equipment details because i’ve been there only once, hastily recording my guitars, but judging by their sound, nothing is missing. the sound of the acoustic guitars was surprisingly well recorded. I fully recommend their services!!!
A very nice and pleasant atmosphere. Professional! i was extremely satisfied…
A great many people associated a studio with an enormous amount of equipment, cables and instruments. Here i found something surprising and extraordinarily friendly. The peace and quiet coming from the ascetic yet highly tasteful control-room, where you can easily focus on your work, where there are no record covers to distract you or holes left after missing equipment to scare you. Acoustically - a gem.
The session at free fly music shaped or music into an album – in three days. Thanks to the studio’s acoustics there was little left to do during postproduction - the microphones and instruments were in their perfect place and everything sounded natural. Not only did we
concentrate on the material, but we also had great fun!
I had the pleasure of spending time and working in this studio a number of times. The atmosphere here is extremely pleasant and facilitates the creative process. It is a professional studio, well equipped with equipment indispensable for recording and editing virtually any music production. The most important thing, however, is the courtesy of the producer, michał, his professional and creative approach, which i treasure.
An amazing, full-blown studio. I’m very pleased by the way the drums sounded.
A professional recording studio created with great passion and love for music, tailored to the most minute of details. The studio’s amazing acoustics guarantees you’ll create an unforgettable sound even at the stage of registration. Professional equipment and production skills multiply this effect in the final stages. I can guarantee the professionals that they’ll find unmatched partners to converse about music and brainstorm. Amateurs will gladly find a nice atmosphere and a helpful, competent hand, so sought after in the first stages of their career. I highly recommend this universal studio.
A nice atmosphere, a spacious, bright interior. I recorded a viola section here and i have to say, the results are beautiful! This place seems to have been created for strings…
Amazing sounding rooms, top-class equipment, professional and helpful sevice. I highly recommend!
Free fly music – there is nothing better to complement the sound of an instrument than a well sounding room. It makes the mix easier to complete and the results natural.
A very pleasant studio. In spite of the stone-like acoustic wall, which lets the sounds sound just right, there is no “cold” feeling because the studio is fitted with a combination of wood and fabric, well lit by spot lighting, which creates a warm, homely atmosphere. This atmosphere is greatly influenced by the producer, who makes work here pleasant and stress-less.
Acoustically, a great place — spacious with a high ceiling; just perfect for recording drums. A great atmosphere, delicious pastries, tea and extraordinary home-made liqueur.
I have never recorded anything among so many ten-foot trees before! Which, as it turned out, give such a great sound and tons of positive energy:)
It was a pleasure for me to record at free fly music studio professional staff, great sound, world-class equipment... I sure hope it wasn't my last visit here:)))
