The philosophy

The studio is designed around modern recording practices complimenting modern recording budgets. The aim is to deliver the best sound quality via a rapid workflow giving more time to capture the best possible performance.

Specialising in music recording and production, the studio is a creative centre brimming with excitement and dedication to your project.

A relaxed and friendly atmosphere is practiced here. We are young and enthusiastic sound geeks who only want to create the most amazing art. Most of our studio engineers have comprehensive live sound experience so they know how to deal with time pressures and technical difficulties.

Only the finest quality equipment is used and we strive to improve on every aspect of your recording.

We particularly appeal to unsigned acts and smaller independent labels as we strive to keep our costs inline with modern budgets.

about the studio

The Live Room

Dimensions – 4.87 x 4.07 x 3m (LWH)

The Solid oak wooden floor and high ceiling provides a wonderfully live and bright acoustic space. Additional baffles can dry up the sound where it’s needed and to separate other instruments from each other. The sound captured is both open and real sounding.

Plenty of floor space ensures a 4/5 piece band can play and record comfortably with good visibility attained from the control room.

Air conditioning is of course included in all rooms.

The control room

Dimensions – 4.74 x 3.2 x 2.65 (LWH)

Also using solid oak flooring, the room has been acoustically treated and set up with consultation from one of the worlds leading acousticians.
