Recording Studio B

Nicknamed ‘The Workshop”, Studio B with its retro-inspired acoustically treated space, offers a relaxed environment that brings your team together.

The workshop has a single live room suitable for all instruments, while the large control room provides connectivity.

Hosting 8 pairs of rack mounted Neve V series just to begin with the equipment list is reminiscent of Studio A.

Just outside the control room, there is a covered area overlooking the hinterland which has a kitchen and dining area, our rustic fireplace compliments the relaxed atmosphere that the Workshop has to offer.
