Recording high quality audio is our passion and we have not cut corners in achieving the highest possible sonics for your sound. From our factory new SSL console through to our recently acquired Quested Q 412 monitors (from Abbey Road studio 3) coupled with Atc SCM 25a's we have considered every element of our recording chain. It simply doesn’t come any better.
The room offers huge windows which outlooks onto the mews and was designed by senior acoustician Nick Whittaker. It also features a Trinnov st2 pro correction system. We believe this is the most accurate monitoring room in London.
We boast one of the best microphone collections in London from the likes of Neumann, AKG, Brauner and Royer.
Our outboard consists of gml and pultec eq’s, fearn pre amps, thermionic culture and retro compressors and many more..
We record all of our analogue mixes to DSD or our Studer a80 tape machine for ultra HD masters.
Our spacious live rooms are amazing for drum sounds and also features a brand new Yamaha grand piano.
The live room boasts substantial natural daylight but can also be closed off to create a more vibey and intimate space. We have guitars from Martin, Gibson, Fender, stacks of high end amps and drums from Tama, mapex and pearl. We also have a full Zildgian K cymbal pack.
Artists looking to take an inspirational break or have a drink after a days recording can take full advantage of our private pool bar.
The private bar is hidden in the basement of the studio and takes chill out to a new level. It is exclusively for use of artists and features bespoke booths, a full PA system, a high end playback system and a pro pool table.
This space is particularly useful for relaxing during a recording session or inviting labels in for playback.
Why not slide out of bed and straight into creativity by taking advantage of our residential facilities.
Our residential suites are housed within the studio and are 5 star rated. They boast wonderful views of London’s famous Portobello Road with a private roof terrace and are all en-suites. We can comfortably sleep 5/6 people.
Also included is a large kitchen / living room area and our famous slide.
For artists wishing to stay with us we can incorporate multiple setups in the living quarters for writing and demoing.
