Spirit Studio.

With its open-plan layout and hand-selected equipment, our beautifully designed Spirit Studio offers the ideal recording and mixing space for professional engineers.

Sporting an impressive 48-channel Neve VR mixing console, a top-of-the-range Pro Tools HDX system, a Studer A800 24-track tape machine, and racks of boutique outboard and FX gear, this studio gives you the opportunity to progress your recording and mixing skills using equipment found only in the most prestigious recording studios in the world.

By combining the the control room and live room, the traditional communication barriers between engineer and musicians has been removed. We can now focus on recording their best performance in a spacious and relaxed environment. Spirit Studio provides the unique opportunity to learn the different techniques and workflows required when recording in a single room: a process that many bands and artists now seek. With classic Stand Easy audio screens available, you have the option to isolate the separate sound sources too. A separate isolation room is available should you wish to record in the more traditional way, or if you wish to separate a vocalist from the rest of the band in the main room.

A no-compromise approach was taken in the development of this facility. Room acoustics were designed by the renowned Jochen Veith, and paired with the legendary PMC MB2S-A main monitors. A dedicated machine room houses our console power supplies, computers, audio interfaces and anything else that generates heat or noise.

Add to that our stellar lineup of outboard equipment from Urei, Tubetech, Avalon, API, AMS, SSL, Lexicon and more, it’s easy to see why so many artists have chosen Spirit Studio. Over the years, Wheatus, Mr Scruff, Mani (Stone Roses), Peter Hook, The Whip, Dutch Uncles, Doves, 808 State, Kid British, Greg Wilson, Diane Shaw, The Script and many, many more have all worked here.

Other advanced-level studios include S6 Suite and Mastering Studio.
