Following a period as Nigel Godrich’s private facility, SR2 was relaunched in 2018 as a joint venture with Nigel. Refurbished with a minimalist approach, featuring a selection of artwork and memorabilia from Nigel’s personal collection, Strongroom 2 brings offers an alternative aesthetic for those in search of a contemporary feel with greater environmental control.Book Studio
Studio 2 is a great sounding control room and a perfect home for my mixing setup. I love working there. It is a calm focused oasis.
Studio 2 has been home of some of the biggest influences in my career. I love working here, it gives me a great sense of peace and harmony.
SR2 is a perfect environment for recording vocals, with top class mics and awesome staff!
Centered around a Dalcon console designed by Bill Putnam, and with the Strongroom-staple Boxer main monitors, the studio also offers Kii Audio, NS10 and Auratone nearfields and a selection of classic vintage synthesizers. The booth houses a Wendel & Lung upright piano with a clear line of sight to the mix position and exterior windows. An HD projector shines behind the mix position for mixing to picture, and optional coloured lighting with low-noise dimmers allow for full lighting customisation.
A 32 I/O Pro Tools HDX2 system with an exhaustive list of plugins runs tirelessly on a Mac Pro 6.1 dustbin or, for the analogue fans, a 3M 24-track tape machine and oodles of classic compressors. Outboard effects include AMS, Eventide, Roland and a stunning stereo EMT 140 plate reverb.
A selection of instant classics (and a few legendary anthems) made recently in this very room!
In light of developments in these uncertain times, Strongroom has made the decision to reschedule all studio programming until further notice for the protection of our staff and clients. We will be monitoring the situation closely, and looking to government for guidance on appropriate action & relief as the COVID-19 situation progresses.
We would like to thank all of our friends, family and customers for solidarity and understanding in this strange climate. We will be back as soon as possible.
