Strongroom 4

Introduction

New to 2024 and centred around a stunning API 1608, Strongroom 4 is designed for today's generation of engineers, producers and self-producing artists in mind. It is fast, fun, simple, clean and creative. 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, a vintage Beverly Galazy 21 drumkit courtesty of producer/engineer drew BANG and is renowned for producing an intimate, snappy drum sound.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT Strongroom 4
  • SR4 is an outstanding accomplishment in modern studio design; perfect for all your needs from production through to mixing. Being able to plug my rig straight into an API console to track and mix is game changing.

  • 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!
