Quote from the legendary Phill Brown www.phillbrown.net “Very cool studio – with a Neve desk, some cool outboard, 87’s, friendly crew. If I was living in Leeds I would use this place. Very reasonable price for what you get!!!” 

At the very heart of this lovely recording studio in Leeds you will find an absolutely awesome Neve V3 36 channel inline console with up to 72 channels available at mix down and dynamics on every channel. The Neve V3 is integrated to Pro Tools 10 HD with outstanding Requisite / Black Lion Audio FM192 converters interfaced to an 8 core Mac Pro and twin 22” wall mounted widescreens. Monitoring is by Dynaudio, Avantone and Yamaha NS10 via UREI and Quad amplification.

We have an enviable collection of high end outboard equipment to complement this, please see our equipment list below for further information. We have a comprehensive microphone collection including a much loved vintage Neumann U87 and a very early model Coles 4038 ribbon microphone.
