Located away from the noise of the city, Decoy Residential Studios provides artists with both spacious and natural surroundings. The converted barn is hidden away with minimal distractions and maximum views, when it comes to a private luxury stay Decoy ticks all the boxes.
The recording suite has been home to clients including One OK Rock, Ed Sheeran, Rat Boy, The Maccabees, Don Broco and James Blunt.
The Control Room serves as the hub to the recording suite with its central feature, an Audient ASP8024 Heritage Edition console. The room has viewing windows into both the Live Room and The Library as well as floor to ceiling windows which overlook the Decoy lakes. The room contains 16 vintage Neve mic amps, great monitoring options and a selection of outboard gear making this an ultimate space for tracking and mixing.
The Live Room is a large open space situated in the centre of the building, unlike most live spaces its full of light and has a stunning lake view, couple this with the great acoustics and you've got the ultimate recording space. The room also features a large circular 'log diffuser' which is as practical as it is striking.
The Library draws its influence from early English manor houses. Primarily used as the studio's vocal booth, the library is also a great space for isolating amps as well as recording drums and voice overs. As photographed, when the Library isn't being used for recording it's secondary function is a post-production room.
