Can your studio accommodate both large bands and single artists?
Do artists have the option of recording ‘live tracks’?
Can you give us a run down on what recording equipment you use and also if there is equipment in the studio that bands can use (amps etc)
Based around a vintage Neve 8232 console, a Pro Tools HDX system with 24 in/40 out and a large selection of outboard and microphones. Yes there is backline available including vintage Ludwig and Tama drum kits, amps from Badcat/Dr Z/Mesa/Ampeg and Marshall and a large boutique pedal collection.
How much studio time would you recommend for a band looking to record a demo (3 tracks)
We only work on masters (rather than demo’s) but usually say 1.5 – 2 days per song is about right.
