RECORDING

Come and record in our large, wonderfully designed and tuned live room. 

There is also a well sized iso booth and a second control room, with isolation between rooms good enough that multiple projects can be run simultaneously.

You can book in with one of our highly experienced engineers, or dry hire, with our range of high end microphones, recording equipment, and backline all available.

MIXING

Come and mix, or master, in our exceptionally tuned control room. Alternatively you can hire one of our skilled mixing and mastering engineers to do the work for you.
