We have two full spec audio post production studios. We’re also a BBC and Scottish Government approved supplier.

You’ll find us in the docklands area of Leith. It’s a little over 2 miles north of Edinburgh’s city centre. Sso we’re easily accessible for clients and artists based in Scotland. We also have a range of remote connection options allowing agencies, directors and artists to collaborate from virtually anywhere in the world. These include ISDN, Source Connect Pro, and others.

Studio 1 is our larger room. Designed to give maximum light and space the studio is capable of seating 7 clients and a producer. The recording booth is primarily set up for 2 artists but can seat up to 4 for round table discussions or podcasts.

Studio 2 is of the small-but-perfectly-formed variety. It can seat 3 clients and a producer. There’s a single person voice booth to the right of the control room. The shape of the room lends itself perfectly to 5.1 surround sound mixing, so we’ve installed have a stunning Genelec 5.1 monitoring system with an SPL surround controller.

We use Nuendo 12 as the primary workstation in both studios running on the latest Mac Pros. RME 24bit/96k audio hardware connects to industry standard Focusrite Red 7 pre-amps and Neumann U87 microphones. They’re as beautiful to use as they are to look at. We also use software from those terribly clever people at Soundminer, Waves, AudioEase, Source Elements, zplane, Blackmagic Design and many others. Geniuses, each and every one of them.

For ADR and location-matching sessions we have Sennheiser MKH40s and Sony ECM83s.
