Rukami Recording Studio Ru/home

Hi, we're Rukami Sound Studio.

"Rukami" means "[done with] hands" in Russian.

Founded in 2010 by experienced musicians and engineers, Rukami Sound is a small indie/rock/metal optimized project studio located in Yekaterinburg, Russia. Our everyday goal is to make world-class tracking and mixing available and affordable to the local underground bands.

Our philosophy:

  • Full production cycle: tracking, editing, mixing, mastering. If you know what you want then we know how to make it happen
  • No cutting corners: helping you find the tone and capture it with the finest gear possible under the circumstances
  • No drum triggering/replacement and no software/processor reamping: real instruments, amps and mics only
  • Old school techniques for those who care about their sound!

Some stuff we recorded and mixed

How we can help you

Though our primary services such as tracking, co-production on the fly etc. are available only locally due to some physical restrictions, we do remote recording with the help of some serious session musicians. And, of course, we can edit, reamp, throw in some additional layers and mix!

Feel free to drop us a line if interested:
