Studio 1's Control Room is a spacious, acoustically designed and comfortable room to create and work in.
At the centre of operations we have a Calrec Q1, 48 input console (recently recapped) with excellent headroom and 16 transparent, stereo compressor/limiters within its meter-bridge. We reference through Quested and PMC monitors, using industry standard, high-end converters.
Please take the time to browse our equipment list (including our microphones and outboard) further down this page.
Once the Map Room for the Royal Observer Corps, since rebuilt and repurposed as a high-end production and mix down studio.
For recording, Studio 1's control room has tie-lines to Filter Room, Isolation Booths and Echo Chamber.
