Services

JBJ Studio is a residential recording studio, on Portobello Road, Notting Hill. The studio has firmly established itself as one of London's premier spaces.

Based around an SSL AWS 924 console and the recently installed Quested Q412s (ex Abbey Road) we offer the ultimate sonic package.

The rooms were designed and built by Nick Whittaker and all feature an abundance of natural light.

Artists looking to relax and really sink into projects can take advantage of the bespoke chill out and residency areas the studio offers.

We offer a full range of services including recording, mixing and mastering. Get in touch today

Control Room

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.

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.
