Maltbarn Studios is an isolated residential writing studio, located in Mid Wales. It offers a stunning, and inspiring retreat to work from with great accommodation, great food, to help clients stay relaxed, and easy, while they concentrate on the real work of writing great records.
Maltbarn's site includes a Welsh Longhouse (1555) which contains the studio and main house, plus a separate cosy cottage. Both sit in a stunning location, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by hills, but luckily the nearest civilisation has a Spa shop open to eleven every day!
There are a number of ways to rent Maltbarn Studios. Clients can rent the main studio, in the main longhouse, along with its two bedrooms or for a more budget retreat you can choose to rent just the cottage and setup a pop up writing setup. Finally for larger groups that want complete privacy they can choose to rent the main studio and cottage for complete privacy - but don't forget to feed the cat and chickens !
The studio consists of an open plan vaulted control room and recording room. The equipment centers around a vintage 1977 24 channel Neve Melbourne console and a ProTools / Ableton rig and PMC monitors. The room comes with a great collection of backline, including synths, keyboards, guitars, amps and effects making it the perfect location to write a new record.
