the recording studio
Is centred around a Midas 32 channel mixer with class leading preamps and signal paths developed for the Midas XL8. Audio is recorded and edited in Magix Samplitude Pro, a significant evolution of the domestically used Magix software.
We use microphones made by Brauner, Rode, SE Electronics, Audio Technica, CAD, Shure, AKG & Sennheiser. If you have specific microphones you would like to use for recording that are not listed here, this can be arranged in consultation with our engineers.
If you would prefer to go the analogue route we have a 16 track Fostex reel to reel recorder which can be used for part or all of the recording.
Along with a large number of software plug-ins, we also have a range of outboard equipment such as effects and preamps which are available for use.
Our live rooms, vocal booth and control room are purpose built and designed by acclaimed acousticians for the optimal recording and production environment. They are all serviced by silent running air-conditioning.
The studio is suitable for the recording of any sort of performance or spoken word, and the service we provide can be adapted to your needs. You can book the studio in consultation with the staff at The Session and we will provide an engineer /producer if required.
There is comfortable furniture and complementary tea and coffee.
Please note that all recording work to be undertaken at The Session must be supervised by our staff, even if you will be using your own engineer.
