We have a fully equipped recording studio allowing you to record anything from a simple voice-over to a complete album.
We are a friendly team of like-minded professional Artistes, Composers and Technical Engineers, offering a high quality service and enthusiastic support in the production of your recordings. We will provide you with technical and production assistance along with our creative know-how, in order to make your time with us a success.
In addition to our studio services we are equipped to provide
48 channel multi-track on-location recordings to capture live
performances, whether you are a soloist, band or full orchestra.
Our aim is to achieve the best possible recordings, at the most competitive price, with a careful consideration of your budget.
"Working in a studio, even for the most experienced of performers can still be quite daunting. When the engineer hits the record button it’s your moment to deliver your best, whether a vocalist or musician. Having been in this same situation myself on numerous occasions I fully understand how this feels, therefore we aim to create an environment in which you, as a performer, can excel.
We understand that it’s not only vitally important to have a quality recording, it is also essential to capture a great performance. Whether it’s recording a vocal over a backing track as a present for a loved-one, recording your budding star, or a potential commercial release, we will have the same enthusiasm and apply the same attention to detail on every project we are involved in".

The writing room is equipped with a Korg Kronus keyboard, Yamaha NS-10M Studio Monitors, audio patch and CCTV link to the control room.
We have a large Live Room measuring 14m x 5m with audio patch panel to the control room. For rehearsal purposes there is playback facilities and a mirrored wall making it ideal for fine tuning your performances.
Our control room is equipped with an Avid C24 which integrates smoothly with our Pro Tools software providing rich powerful features, along with KS Digital C88 Monitors for that perfect reproduction of your material, with a sound output which is precise and sonically neutral, giving a most accurate 3-way near-field experience.

The studio is further complimented by a large selection of industry renowned microphones, including Neumann and Peluso, enabling us to capture a true reproduction of all vocals and instruments.

Visually, the show is stunning!! From the amazing projections to the spectacular lighting you have assisted us in creating a feast for the eyes! The show also sounds incredible, with more radio mics than ever before and the extensive work that has gone into ensuring every line is heard, we truly have a show to be marvelled at. You have given your time so warmly, and we have truly enjoyed your company whilst you have been with us! You are all so incredibly talented and I hope our audiences appreciate the level of detail you have put into every element of the production".

Nothing was too much trouble and his calm, focus, dedication and skill made my job so much easier".

The light programs were great and the first dance was made all the more lovely due to it, thank you again. You went the extra mile - in fact, a few extra miles - on the whole thing and I want you to know that it made a huge difference to our day and that we hugely appreciate it".
