PROJECT STUDIO
COVID-19 Precautions and Protocols
Due to the easing of certain lockdown measures by the government, we have reviewed ways that sessions can take place safely within our studios. We are now open for bookings under social distancing measures. Prior to booking a session, please read our full COVID-19 Precautions and Protocols.
Accessible London Studio

We are conveniently located just off the South Circular in South East London, with strong transport links to both Central London and the southern counties. Bringing equipment to the studio is easy, with free street parking right outside our doors. For more information on how to reach us, visit our contact page.

Control Room

A Sony DMX-R100 24-channel digital mixing console is the centrepiece of the control room, which communicates seamlessly with Pro Tools HD 12. The console itself includes 12 pristine phantom-powered preamps, but when you’re after more colour, we also have other popular preamps such as the  Neve 1073DPA and the Focusrite ISA Two. The 15m² control room is equipped with a pair of Yamaha HS80M Studio Monitors and we have countless plugins available for use, including the full Waves Mercury Bundle, Seventh Heaven Professional Reverb and ValhallaDSP.

Studio Floor

A Bentley baby grand piano is at the heart of the studio floor, alongside a Nord Electro 4 HP digital keyboard and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. Our extensive microphone collection includes both vintage specialities and modern industry favourites, including the Neumann U87, Neumann KM84, AKG C414, Electro-Voice RE20, Schoeps CMIT 5U and many others. With custom-designed acoustic treatment, a high ceiling and 12m2 of floor space, it has a tight and controlled sound which facilitates the recording of up to three musicians live in the studio.

…I have designed this studio for soloists and small ensembles, but multitracking is of course a viable way of recording larger ensembles here. My favourite thing about the studio is the beautiful baby grand piano, with its bright and even tone that is perfect for jazz and pop recording.
