magnitude 8 post recording studioThe owner and founder of Magnitude 8 Post recording studio will forever close its doors. Audio engineer Les Claypool III posted the news on his official Facebook page earlier today.

Here are some of the titles Magnitude 8 have worked on, as listed by Les himself:

Akira, Appleseed, Big O, Blackjack, Castle of Cagliostro (twice!), Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, Defiance, Devil May Cry, Drive, Final Fantasy, Giant Robo, Ghost in the Shell (movies and TV series), Gundam, Guyver, Macross Plus, Ninja Scroll, Orguss, Resident Evil 5, Tri-Gun, Wings of Honneamise, Wolf’s Rain, and so many more.

According to the announcement, the main issues which led to the closure are financial, and the fact that what seemed to be a beneficial business in the past no longer is, the investments made into the studio are a tenth of what current studios invest, yet he received not enough to suffice for salaries, rents and licensing.

The official website of the recording studio is no longer online.
