The story so far:
In 1998 or so, a musician named Nir Yaniv was busy moving to a new apartment, which was owned by himself (or so he liked to think) and the bank (or so the bank liked to think). There were two and a half rooms in said apartment, which Nir considered to be slightly too much. Therefore he converted the biggest room into a recording studio. This was, despite the resistance of his parents (at first) and his neighbors (later on), a very good idea. You'd be amazed at what can be achieved in a 4x4 room, using relatively simple equipment. Well, Nir was. Still is. Some of the neighbors are also amazed, especially when a drums session is going on. However, strangely enough, there were still no incidents involving the local law enforcement community.
Currently the NSS can handle live sessions of 3-4 musicians, drums included, recording up to 24 channels simultaneously. It is also used for creating soundtracks for films, theatre and dance shows. It is a non-profit studio, operating only for friends and good musicians. Most of the people visiting it are both.
The Nir Space Station is named after the MIR Space Station, RIP.
