Spacious, comfortable, and with a reputation as one of the most accurate sounding mix rooms in Europe, Studio 3 regularly attracts clients from around the world and from all musical genres. It receives frequent praise from artists, producers and engineers who enjoy the mix of great acoustics, excellent equipment and a relaxed, comfortable environment.

Designed by White Mark and built around the classic SSL 4056 G+ console with Boxer monitoring, with a choice of near field monitors including ATC, Genelec, Dynaudio & NS10s, Studio 3 has a long list of mix credits and is increasingly in demand for vocal, writing and full band tracking sessions, thanks to the adjoining slate/wood live room and separate isolation booth.

A 48 I/O Pro Tools HDX2 system with Hear Back personal monitoring mixers and long list of plug ins keeps sessions running efficiently; for analogue fans there’s an Otari MTR90 24 track tape machine and choice of Ampex or Otari 2 track. A comprehensive selection of outboard processors is available in the racks and an EMT plate reverb is permanently installed, with a range of effects, toys and instruments available on request, including a selection of classic analogue synths (Juno, Jupiter, Moog, OSCar etc).

As with the other studios, a separate leisure room is situated nearby for client comfort/privacy and our on-site bar and restaurant offers an excellent range of home-cooked food and drinks.

 

“Amazing to work in and results are always great. My idea of what a good room should sound like.”
Nick Terry, mix engineer – (Simian Mobile Disco, McAlmont & Butler, Klaxons, The Libertines).
