Redeveloped in 2013 with producer Danton Supple, the studio is based around an ex-BBC Calrec Q-Series console. A fantastic range of outboard mic pres, compressors and EQs make it ideal for writing & production, recording and overdubbing.
Floor to ceiling windows overlook the courtyard filling it with abundant natural light. The live room houses a characterful vintage Chappell upright piano and is renowned for producing an intimate drum sound.Book Studio
Studio four was designed to create an ergonomic work space in a beautiful light filled room. The recording area has perfect line of sight to the desk and sounds great. Despite its size, it is my favourite drum room.
Studio 4 is my favourite studio to record an album in. It has the perfect amount of gear, vibe and natural daylight. Also the drum sound is impeccable!
The choice of Calrec console provides a distinctive, adaptable front-end. The room is designed for ease of use, either in an ‘in-the-box’ configuration or with a traditional console-based workflow. The adjoining live area provides excellent line of sight to the mix position making it perfect for vocal sessions. Studio monitoring is centered around a Cranesong Avocet controller, feeding a pair of Genelec 8351s, Yamaha NS10s and a Pure Evoke DAB radio to the side of the room.
Additional to the range of valve and vintage pre-amps and compressors, FX and backline include a Yamaha DX7, Nord Rack synth, WEM Copicat and a Revox 1/4" reel-to-reel plus digital multi-fx processors. The live room can be used as an additional tracking area for larger recording sessions in Strongroom 3, leaving the control room available for editing and mixing on larger multi-suite bookings.
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.
