A local recording stable Diamond Studios have moved from analogue to digital recording. The studio which was established at Ashdown Park last week will start working this week.

In an interview, the studio boss Steady Munyanyi said the dynamics of music industry had forced them to digitalise their studios. “New technological versions have forced us to set up this new recording studio that has digital machines,” he said.

Munyanyi said they will not do away the analogue machines.

“They have their own aantages but this new system gives artists room to improve on the quality of their music,” he added.

Jabulani Ndlovu who is one of the producers at the studios hailed the new system saying this was one of the moves meant to improve the quality of Zimbabwean music.

“Digital studios are there in Zimbabwe but they have been instrumental to artists who do not record live so this move by the studio to set up a digital studio for live recording is commendable,” Ndlovu said.

He said this would improve the quality of music in Zimbabwe.

“One thing that put artists on the limelight both locally and internationally is the quality of music they produce so this move might improve the quality of music,” he said.

Artists hailed the move saying it was another platform for them to improve their music.

Sungura musician Hebert Majeke said the task was for the musicians to up their game. “It is our task now to improve on the content because the efforts by the studio are welcome,” said Majeke.

Under the new studio Majeke is working with other instrumentalists Obert Gomba from Extra Kwazvose and Utakataka Express’ Spencer Khumulani for an album. Bothwell Nyamondera will be the producer of the four track album that will be released this week. Another artist, Tendai Chipara, said he was happy to be recording at the studio.
