The studio consists of two live rooms based around an Amek Big analogue desk and Pro-Tools HD, offering the best of digital, in-the-box and analogue recording/mixing. We also have a great selection of microphones, outboard gear, synths and an excellent W Hoffmann upright piano.

We provide a range of services; full live band/ vocal recording, mixing and production and have a team of engineers with a vast array of experience in the industry.

The Studio is located within MAP Cafe, offering a full menu and licensed bar. We offer a unique, relaxed and creative space open to musicians, vocalists and voice artists of all styles and genres.  Of our two live rooms, one doubles up as a live music venue and is large enough for full bands, choirs and string sections. It's also ideal for video shoots etc. The smaller live room is perfect for drums/vocalists. The control room offers a large, comfortable space to mix, listen and relax.
