At Beechpark Studio we have created a recording environment which is designed with the comfort of the artists to the forefront. We consider peace (and peace of mind!), daylight and line of sight between artists and engineer. Great attention has been paid to each room’s acoustic properties, which is an attribute essential to recording solid performances.
The studio has both digital and analogue recording available. Digital in the form of Pro Tools HD, Digidesign 192 interfaces with 32 inputs and 40 outputs as standard. More channels are available on request. A Studer A827 24 track with Dolby SR is available for those wishing to record to analogue. The Studer is well maintained and is perfect for transferring old tapes to digital. There is also a ½” Studer A80 (ex (Paul Weller) and a ¼” Otrari MTR15.
The console is an Audient 8024 which has 60 channels. This allows for great flexibility when recording in terms of monitoring and headphone mixing. There is a multitude of high end mic preamps, compressors and processors. We also have a huge and varied selection of microphones.
The studio is particularly well suited to bands and groups who like to perform together. There are options to isolate instruments or vocals of course, but we have designed the facility to be capable of recording everyone at once. Up to seven different headphone mixes are available.
