Strongroom 3

Introduction

Spacious, comfortable, and with a reputation as one of the most accurate sounding mix rooms in Europe. SR3 was designed and built by White Mark in 1997, around the classic SSL 4056 G+ console and Strongroom-staple Boxer monitoring. Nearfield monitors including ATC SCM25A and Yamaha NS10s with a Genelc 1092 sub.

The live room and booth make the studio perfect for both vocal and full band tracking sessions, plus a mouth-watering collection of historic synths and drum machines to compliment any production session.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT Strongroom 3
  • Studio 3 is such a creative and colourful spaceship, one of my favourite and most inspiring places to create in London with the best choice between vintage and modern equipment.

    Ricky Damian
    Recording / Mix Engineer
    (Mark Ronson, Jorja Smith, Sampha)
  • The control room is inspiring and fun to work in. The recording room has a short, well balanced ambience to it - perfect for recording vocals, guitars etc.

    Peter Walsh
    Producer / Engineer
    (Scott Walker, Spandau Ballet, Pulp)
  • Amazing to work in and results are always great. My idea of what a good room should sound like.
