The Control Room is spacious and acoustically designed, having been treated with various sound absorbers and bass traps to provide an accurate mixing environment. The room is isolated from the other rooms and features a comfortable sofa and clear lines of slight through to the Live Room, Vocal Booth and Drum Booth.
Our large, 70 sq metres (750 sq ft) live room can accommodate large groups of musicians and features a baby grand piano as a focal point in what is a hugely versatile recording space. There are movable upright and floating sound baffles to help tailor the acoustics of the room for your required sound, plenty of rugs tiled and laminated surfaces. At one end of the room is the lounge area with a television, games consoles and DVD’s all of which can be moved on request, plus a modern kitchen, adjoining shower and toilet.
This room, primarily used as a drum booth, offers further versatility to our set-up by enabling full isolation of any instrument or selection of instruments from the Live Room during recording. The room has been specifically designed to allow us the flexibility for both lively and intimate recording. The booth can also be used as a rehearsal space, measures 3.5m x 3.5m and provides clear line of slight through to the Vocal Booth, Live Room and Control Room.
The Vocal Booth measures 1.5m x 1m and has been designed to be acoustically dead. The room can be used for vocals / voice over work or for isolation of either amplified or non-amplified instruments during live tracking.
