Studios 3 & 4
Built in 1993, these two rooms comprise SRT's most flexible
suite. Studio 3 works as a mastering facility, a 56-channel
multitrack mixdown facility ( including 5.1 surround-sound
) and a recording control-room for Studio 4.
4 is a spacious live room, designed with jazz and
small classical groups in mind. Featuring a beautiful Steinway
piano, it offers a comfortable, intimate setting for a wide
variety of musical styles. Many highly-regarded recordings
have been made here, with artists like Dina Carroll, Christine
Tobin, Alec Dankworth, the RPO strings and John Taylor. Customers
often comment on the great "feel" of the rooms and
enjoy the relaxed, informal working atmosphere.
A combination of B&W 801 mastering-calibre monitoring,
SADiE Artemis editing platform, reverbs by TC Electronic and
24/96 surround-capable Yamaha desk form the basis of Studio
3's outstanding mixing capabilities, with recordings
made to any format as required. This superb environment lends
itself equally well to any application; surround-sound mixing,
for example on Culture Club's 20th Anniversary concert at
the Royal Albert Hall; digital mastering and re-mastering
for customers like BMG, Universal/Island and numerous independent
labels; recordings of everything from film soundtracks through
voiceovers and drama to jazz, folk, rock, and R&B; or
sound-to-picture work for TV and film.
the medium or material, SRT's engineers pride themselves on
achieving an authentic, natural sound, and relish working
closely with artists, labels and producers to achieve the
highest possible standards.
