Recording Spaces

Our rooms were created by one of the top studio designers in the industry to give the optimum sound for instruments and vocals.

A forward thinking design giving the rare ability to record from up to nine independent spaces, meaning the largest of bands can record live while keeping the recording of each instrument clean of spill.

Acoustic windows and mic and headphone ties between spaces allow musicians to watch and communicate with each other. The unique arrangement is the ideal solution to the problem of retaining the energy of playing live as a band against the clarity of recording each instrument separately. Bands can save huge amounts of time and money in the studio by recording in this way.

You can also record in the main hall, which has the capacity to hold 100 people – or the dance studio – this makes it ideal for orchestras and choirs.

Please feel free to book a tour of our studio.  Call us on 01833 690150.
