Whilst the custom 16 Channel SSL G Series Console may take centre stage, the extraordinary array of classic outboard gear and top of the range monitoring from ATC rounds of the control room as an environment perfect for mixing as well as tracking.The studio's extensive collection of synthesizers and drum machines are wall mounted, wired to the patchbay and linked via midi for ease of use. All cabling used throughout the studio is high grade Van Damme to ensure perfect signal quality.
Flexibility is key in the live room, with enough space for a large band to play together, and interchangeable acoustic panels for a variety of room sounds. Some of the highlights of our instrument collection are housed here, notably, an impeccably reconditioned Yamaha U1 upright piano, the classic Hammond A100 with matching Leslie 145, a Wurlitzer 200 and a beautiful early 70s LA Camco drum kit.
Uniquely, No. 1 Baltic Place offers rehearsal capability in the live room, with a high end D&B PA system (including a 24 channel Digital Soundcraft console) to ensure that live sound is perfect before heading out on the road. This also means that the studio is perfect for writing and pre production in a live sense before getting down to recording.
A separate vocal booth adjacent to the control room and an additional amp room provide useful isolation of sound, the latter containing a wide selection of desirable guitar and bass amplifiers.
Upstairs there is a large comfortable lounge area that serves either as the perfect space to take a break from the session, to conduct meetings or intimate writing sessions. Recently referbished with a newly installed kitchen and bathroom, reliable internet and an Xbox with Netflix, anyone looking to make No.1 their second home whilst recording will be perfectly content.
We have secure private carparking outside the studio in a gated courtyard. Please let us know if you require parking when booking.
All bookings for No.1 Baltic Place receive full use of the entire complex, with exclusive access to all the facilities allowing clients to work in an entirely self-contained, East London production house.
