Urchin's flagship recording studio is perfect for full band tracking, string sessions, video shoots and whatever else you can think of. Built completely from the ground up with uncompromising acoustics, the studio has its own private chill out area and, like all of their recording studios, features natural light and air conditioning throughout.
The space is divided into 2 areas in the traditional 'classic studio' layout of a separate Control Room and Live Room, totalling around 55sq metres of studio space.
The control room features a custom designed 'wrap around' desk, housing a Trident 65 recording console and a variety of high end outboard and preamps. But the studio recognises that sometimes all the modern producer needs is a space between the speakers to put their laptop down and get to work, and so they've ensured the studio is flexible enough to provide that too.
A generous sized window provides excellent sight lines through from the control room to the live room, which itself has 2 large windows providing natural light throughout. Acoustically, the live room provides both dryer and wetter areas, and also a booth for when greater separation is needed. The booth is large enough to house a drum kit or piano depending on requirements.
Clients have full access to the upstairs shared lounge/kitchen, but for when more privacy is required, Studio A also features it's own separate sofa/chill out area and toilet.
Can I bring my own setup?
Yes absolutely! These days many producers/engineers/musicians prefer to bring their own laptop to work from. Urchin Studios have gone out of their way to make this as easy as possible for you.
Outboard gear e.g 500 series lunchboxes, FX units can also be quickly and easily integrated with their rig.
