The studio has a large live room which benefits from acoustic treatment; creating a warm, natural sound for drums and piano recordings, as well as guitar amps and voice. The control room is well-treated for monitoring and mixing in isolation.

As an engineer and musician, I have been recording and mixing music in London studios during the 90s and early 2000s, and in this studio in Kent since 2006, and have gained skill and expertise through this long experience.

As well as recording music performances, I have produced voice recordings for radio shows, television adverts and academic seminar presentations; as well as orchestral pieces, backing music and audio soundtracks for all sorts of uses - see Composition.
