Santeri Salmi Audio Production

It all started in the 90's with a four track tape recorder. First official production saw daylight in 2002. What happened after that? More and more bands came in to record and mix their stuff. During 2002-2007 the studio was called Studio Dauntless and 2008-2015 Drop Hammer Studios. These days most of the recordings happen at Inka Studio (Orimattila, Finland), but it is possible to record in any studio you wish. Mixing is always done in my personal mixing suite located in Järvenpää.

"It has been plesure to work with Drop Hammer Studios and Santeri Salmi. Very professional dude who did the job we wanted. He managed to capture famous 90s Scandinavian (Death Metal) sound which has been very challenging here in Finland for some reason." - Disformed 2015
