STUDIO 1 – RAPHAEL STUDIO
Studio 1 is the main recording studio space and includes the Live Room & Vocal Booth and is well equipped with a range of classic analogue mics, valve amps, full Gretsch and Ludwig drum kits, both soft and analogue synths.
Studio 1 was designed by renowned acoustician Max Hodges (SOS). The room is air-conditioned, fully ventilated and acoustically treated with high-end acoustic Absorbing & BAD (Binary Amplitude Diffsorbor™) panels and Diffusor panels designed and manufactured by RPG.
The space has a unique, bespoke (LED lit) suspended cloud to provide absorption when recording full drum kits and other instruments.
We offer a wide range of integrated recording solutions, based around an Apple Mac Pro, Pro Tools and Logic Pro system with pristine high end AD/DA conversion and clocking from the SSL (Solid State Logic) Alphalink and Prism Sound Orpheus.
Studio 1 is now fully networked to Studio 2 and the control room providing great flexibility, enhancing the recording capability and enabling larger groups of musicians to multi-track and record live.
We are also linked to our neighbouring radio station Phonic FM, which enables us to run Maida Vale-style live sessions on-air as well as pre-recorded sessions.
