Built in the guts of a 550 tonne, 75-year-old ship the studio is a classic room within a room design; the internal structure being completely isolated from the steel hull by rubber mounts.
The live room is over 500sq ft, with natural light, excellent natural acoustics, great for drum recording and big enough to comfortably record a band live. The large vocal booth and amp booth allow for good separation even with loud guitar amps. There’s a stack of vintage valve amps to use as well as various guitars, basses, pedals, cymbals, snares and two drum kits.
The 300sq ft Control Room is a carefully designed mixing room, light and comfortable with plenty of room for bands, hangers on, managers and all your i- paraphanalia. Take a look at the equipment page for more details.
Built into one of the diesel tanks and a void space we also have two unique echo chambers, not available in any plugin.
The API console is as good as it gets for drum and guitar recording and the selection of other preamps allow for complete flexibility.
Headphone monitoring is often overlooked and it’s importance underestimated, especially when doing live recordings but we have 2 DACS high quality headphone amps, hand made in the UK allowing for 8 independent mixes.
The lounge and kitchen are on the main deck level, all the usual stuff. Outside there’s plenty of space to smoke fags, have bbq’s and sun yourself.
