When it comes to recording we believe in trying to capture what makes an artist unique - whatever it is that makes you you.
So we've built a space designed to make you feel comfortable and at home. We want you to be able to settle in and give your best performance without that uncomfortable feeling of being in a strange, alien environment.
We have a great backline of amps, drum kits and guitars for you to use if you prefer this to bringing your own, which can be such an ordeal to drag around on public transport.
But we're also located just two minutes walk from the nearest station (Star Lane) so if you are bringing your own gear you won't have far to carry it.
Our Live Room is comfy and spacious with plenty of room for a traditional drums / bass / guitars group so if you want to record live you've come to the right place.
The room has been carefully acoustically treated and it sounds GREAT - really well balanced and under control, but still with plenty of life and vibe.
We've installed a monitoring system that puts you in control of your mix - up to four different monitor mixes are available at the flick of a switch, all of which can be adjusted however you like, by you, in the room.
As well as the big Live Room there's an isolation booth for singers or other instrumentalists (violins, brass, woodwind, etc.) who'd otherwise be drowned out by the noisier elements if you tried to record them in the same room. Or you could throw one of the amps in there to get better separation between the guitar / drums / bass.
Making a great record isn't *just* about capturing a great performance (though that will get you a long way towards it, and it's always what we strive to do).
Getting the mix right is just as important.
We have a great selection of outboard gear and a big collection of the best plug-ins around from Waves, UAD, Soundtoys, Native Instruments and many others to get your recorded audio sounding just right.
But it doesn't matter much how you get there, or what you use. How it sounds in the end is all that's important. Listen to some of our work on the Sound & Vision page to hear some of our favourites tracks from the work we've done here.
