The Studio

Control-Room-Hero-Shot-02.jpg

At the heart of the studio is a 24 channel SSL console, complimented with a host of rare and classic outbound gear and electronics.  The studio also features an enviable collection of vintage synths from Roland, Moog and Korg.

Live Area

The spacious live area has plenty of natural light and can comfortably accommodate a five-piece band. It features a main live room, additional drum room, and amp room providing optimal separation and allowing musicians record their parts simultaneously.

Main Room

17ft x 14ft. room with large windows either side providing plenty natural daylight. The room has a dead acoustic feel allowing for live recording with minimal leakage between instruments. There is a large window through to the control room and sliding glass door through to the drum room.  

Live room features a collection of guitars, instruments, and amplifiers.

Drum Room.jpg

Drum room

13ft. x 12ft. room with large window allowing natural light to stream in. The ceramic tiled floor, hard plastered walls and ceiling give a bright, lively acoustic. Alternatively the room can be hung with acoustic curtains to tailor ambience. The patio doors give clear views to the main room.

Iso booth

Small booth suitable for guitar or bass amps which assists with separation from amps in main live room.

Other FACILITIES

The studio itself is part of a larger studio complex which hosts a further five smaller studios occupied by producers, engineers,
a mastering house, and a pro audio retailer offering clients a one stop shop for all their needs.

There is a large lounge and kitchen area and - uniquely for a central London studio - a private garden providing plenty of space to relax and unwind.
