We also have a further 8 Api and Neve mic pre’s integrated with our Pro Tools HDX MADI system which also connects our extensive array hi-end modern and vintage outboard equipment.

Acoustics haven’t been forgotten and all rooms have designed and built by Roger Darcy for optimum recording and listening. To finish off the whole experience we have monitoring by ATC – the legendary SCM300ASL.

Microphone selection mics including a rare vintage 1960’s AKG C24, which has to be heard to be believed, as well as Royer, Neumann, AKG, Sennhesier and more.

We also have on hire our in-house USA Custom Pork Pie drum kit, Remo congas and a vast array of percussion.


Manchester Northern Quarter Studio

Conveniently only five minutes walk from Piccadilly train station. This site is perfect for solo artists or small bands (no drums), Podcast,  voiceovers, audio post production (TV, film, internet), song writing and our music tech courses.

We use professional recording equipment with a Studio Mods acoustically treated room, Adam monitoring, with a UAD system and Neumann mics and have a separate acoustically treated vocal booth.
