Situated on the first floor, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard, Strongroom 4 is one of the most relaxed and comfortable studios in town.

Redeveloped in 2013 in conjunction with producer Danton Supple, the studio is based around an ex-BBC Calrec Q-Series console, alongside a fantastic range of outboard mic pres, compressors and EQs, making it ideal for writing, recording, overdubbing, writing and mixing. Studio 4 is also very well suited to voiceover work.

The choice of Calrec console provides a characterful and 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. An adjoining live area has excellent line of sight to the mix position as well a stunning Challen 988 upright piano.

With Strongroom’s usual attention to technical detail, Studio 4 is a simple and enjoyable studio to use and a great choice for a wide range of projects.
