Record your Rehearsal

Have you ever wanted to record your Rehearsal session for reference or as some quick tracks to show off your band, but only have a stereo recorder which doesn't quite make your tracks sound as great as they truly are? Well now you can! With our newly installed tie lines to the Control room we can record up to 7 individual microphone sources straight through our lovely valve hardware and into the DAW so that you get the exact same recording quality that you would have if booking a day in the studio.


Studio 2 has been used by hundreds of bands in the past 10 years, including high profile artists and touring bands such as Raphael Ravenscroft, Curved Air, Finlay Quay, Steve Cradock (Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene), Andy Kristie as well as local bands and singer-songwriters including Stella Martyr, Strangleberry, Count to Fire, The Cuts ups, Badlake, Blissfull Abyss, Cargo Cult, Secrets for September, Rough Cut, Chiyoda Ku, Burning Colours, Battleborn, Blu Funk Allstars, The Waxroom, GRICE and many more.
