Studio A

About

Our flagship recording studio is perfect for full band tracking, string sessions, video shoots and whatever else you can think of. Built completely from the ground up with uncompromising acoustics the studio has its own private chill out area and like all of our recording studios features natural light and air conditioning throughout.

The space is divided into 2 areas in the traditional ‘classic studio’ layout of separate Control Room and Live Room, totaling around 55sq metres of studio space.

The control room features a custom designed ‘wrap around’ desk housing a Trident 65 recording console and a variety of high end outboard and preamps. But we know sometimes all the modern producer needs is a space between the speakers to put their laptop down and get to work – relax, we have that too!

A generous sized window provides excellent sight lines through from the control room to the live room, which itself has 2 large windows providing natural light throughout. Acoustically the live room provides both dryer and wetter areas, and also a vocal booth for when greater separation is needed. The booth is large enough to house a drum kit or piano depending on requirements.

Clients have full access to our upstairs shared lounge/kitchen but for when more privacy is required Studio A also features it’s own separate sofa/chill out area and toilet.

This studio is based off our old Studio A at the London Fields site (see About Us for more details on Urchin 2.0)
