1 x Main Control Room

1 x Live (Drum) Room

1 x Live (Vocal/Guitar) Room / Project Studio

2 x Bathrooms

This high spec penthouse recording studio with panoramic views and two balconies is based in Kew/Brentford, very close to Richmond and Chiswick, and with convenient transport links to central London.

All three rooms are conveniently linked via wall boxes, so you could either use the project room as a separate studio for editing / vocals / post-production, or you could run larger tracking sessions making use of two live rooms for isolation between sources.

Despite being based in a residential area, the studio is based on its own floor, so provided neighbours are respected upon entering the building, noise isn’t an issue once in the studio. There is a car park about a 5 minute walk away for anyone who may drive.

Equipment includes:

An Avid S3 and Dock at the heart of the mixing desk for an in-the-box workflow with the sonic benefits of our makeshift 88RS Neve console made up on Neve 8801 channel strips, amongst our other additional outboard gear.

Note: 2 of the DI Boxes and OX Amps are rigged up in the amp room via Ampete 88S switching systems meaning you can switch between amps at the flick of a button without having to unplug your guitar lead or change the amp to cab connections. This makes workflow fantastic.

One rig is set up for the main guitar amps, and the other is set up for bass amps.

The third DI Box and OX Amp is kept in the control room so if you wish to bring your own amp(s) you can set this up yourself independently of having to tediously change the rig / cabling of the first two Ampete-OXAmp systems.
