Our studios are a true floating design, with each mastering room built as a free-standing shell, resting on hundreds of rubber isolation pads. Purpose designed and built from the ground up, our mastering rooms represent the very best that modern, acoustic science has to offer, creating the ultimate listening space to appraise your recordings.
Studio A is configured around a custom designed, analogue, mastering console. Providing an extremely pure and short signal path, the console allows us to work with the finest out-board equipment, ranging from valve compressors, to precision mastering equalizers.
