Multi-track Digital/Analogue Recording
Okay, lets get this straight from the start: the studios aren’t geared up for recording bands like The Polyphonic Spree or Radiohead (but we never say no to a challenge). Instead, the studio space is more akin to that of a very intimate and personal recording space for personal and private projects. It has been professionally acoustically treated and calibrated for recording the human voice, acoustic instruments (hand drums, string, wind, brass, guitars etc...), electronic keyboards and acoustic/electric guitars (and basses!!). However, there is enough space to accommodate a 4 to 5 piece band or string arrangement.
Whether you are a seasoned recording professional or your first time in the studio, we are confident that we will give you a relaxed and enjoyable studio experience. With over 32 channels of recording capacity at any one time, there are more than enough tracks to satisfy the most demanding of clients!
The majority of recording is done directly through a Mackie analogue 24 track 8 bus recording/mixing console. We can also accommodate recording direct to hard disc via Digidesign (Pro Tools) hardware or 1/4” 8 track magnetic tape. Ease, power and flexibility. Precision up to 96KHz sample rates and 24 bit dynamics gives professional digital audio quality.
Depending on the size of your project, we can discuss rates, terms and conditions to suite your budget and requirement. The more time you buy the less you pay. From the one day Demo CD to the 6 month album project, we are geared up for most recording scenarios. Please call or email us to discuss your recording needs.
Block bookings and rates are also available if you have a need to “reserve” a number of days that you can pick off at your leisure (e.g. for editing, mixing, mastering etc…).
Recording the material is only part of the process. Utilising vintage and contemporary analogue outboard processors and state of the art software plug-ins, we have the ability to turn any recording into a sparkling production. With the extensive renovation work just completed, we have transformed a basement bedroom into a full-featured, professional studio with the facility to mix down to a number of different formats including (but not limited to):
- 5.1 surround
- 7.1 surround
Depending on the project, we can generate a pricing structure to suite your deliverable. Please call us to discuss your requirements.
For mixing audio to video we would need to discuss what your requirements are so that we can agree the required format and a rate for the job.
We can offer limited video editing facilities on-site (for show reels, VO cuts etc...), and the ability to edit audio from any industry standard source and format to tie this in with video when producing audio post for the project. Working closely with SOHO based video post production facilities, we neatly and seamlessly work together to produce professional broadcast quality programs.
The complexities of any post production project dictate that we will need to discuss in detail what your requirements are so that we can agree a competitive rate for the project.
Whatever the project, focus is on product delivery to budget, timescale and quality. Time is money and nowhere is this more true than in a professional recording studio. Whatever the demands of the client, we can deliver to CD, SACD, DVD-A, DVD-Video, 1/4” magnetic tape (stereo), FTP (for larger projects, we can FTP the project files directly to any other FTP server), WAV, BWAV, MP3, SDII... in fact most (if not all) professional file formats.
