“The goal of the studio is to make a fully functioning recording and rehearsal space able to facilitate a full 4 piece band including drum kit and vocal booth. Ideally suited to creative musicians who love the vibes of being in inspirational environments and who appreciate the art of capturing magical moments”
*16 track, 24-bit, analogue and digital high quality mobile recording facility*
At the heart of the Recording Studio is the idea that a multi-track studio can come to where the music is made. Creativity is sometimes an ephemeral thing and is often linked to a situation in time or a specific place. With that in mind if the studio can be at the point of inspiration, we can get as close as possible to the freshest moments of expression. This is the motivation of the Studio, to be in the right place at the right time with as little invasion of the creative process as possible, to capture the magic.
It is also possible to take the equipment out of the van to the location of your choice, for instance a room with the desired natural ambience or perhaps an unusual building such as a church or Abbey. The Studio has many uses and can be adapted to many unusual situations. The van itself is equipped with studio grade speakers and 240v power so even in inclement weather it’s still possible to plugin extra amps, outboard gear and keyboards at that beauty spot, magnificent view or rugged moorland wilderness. The van also has tea making facilities.
The Studio uses high quality mics (Sontronics, Avenson, AKG) to retain highly detailed sonic audio depth and clarity, plus the latest hybrid analogue and digital mixing desk from BEHRINGER XENYX UFX1604 capable of recording 24bit recordings straight to ipad for further editing or into industry standard stem files for mixing on other DAW’s. 16 tracks can be recorded at a time with unlimited overdubs.
The van has 3 sets of speakers including a sub plus high quality power amp to give a complete (and very loud if necessary) audio spectrum playback to the recorded music. The van also has different sound recording spaces for creating the right ambience for the instrument. There’s the general space that has carpeted walls and rugs to create a ‘dry’ controllable recording, a wooden (oak and pine panels) reflective ‘live’ area for brighter character sounds and an isolation booth enabling vocals (or solo instrument) to be recorded simultaneously with minimum bleed. The custom drum booth is designed with wooden panels in a special arched dome configuration to give more pleasing harmonic reflective overtones to the drum kit overhead mics. High quality drum kit (Zildjian K cymbals), bass (Musicman ray 34), acoustic guitar (Crafter), 12 string guitar (Tanglewood) plus Hartke bass amp pedal and Tech 21 Sansamp are also available to use for recording.
