THE ROOMS

Control Room

Our Control Room is fully air conditioned and professionally acoustically treated to ensure what you hear is what you get when you leave the studio.

We have a wonderful equipment selection, all centred around our vintage DDA AMR24 console.

The control room provides comfortable seating for band members and a relaxed, yet professional environment for you to produce your next release.

Live Room

Our live room boasts an oak floor and measures 22' x 15' x 8'.

The room has been specifically designed to cater for bands and we specialise in offering a comfortable, great sounding environment for recording killer drum sounds, massive guitars and perfect vocals.

There is plenty of space in the live room for all band members to play together if desired, and the awesome hearBack monitoring system allows all members to enjoy their own personal headphone mix, which they can control via their mixer pod.

Of course, the live room is also versatile and over the years we have captured some wonderful sounds in this space.
