Westpoint's striking interior lends itself to a creative vibe from the moment you enter.
The studio boasts 3 key rooms, 2 booths and an edit suite plus ample facilities to make your session a comfortable and inspiring experience. With a range of modern, vintage and inspirational equipment, Westpoint allows you to continue your project from it's early writing stage though to production, recording and mixing with outstanding results.
Centred around our SSL console, Westpoint's control room can uniquely accommodate two engineers, a producer's table and an artists' interactive table all at the same time, allowing multiple people to interact on the same session for a level of creativity unveiled by other studios. The producer's table can also control the many set of speakers and talk back facilities without having to move. Further interrelation can be accessed from our live room allowing musicians to directly control Pro Tools and monitor proceedings; great for spontaneous punch-ins! For traditional mixing sessions, we have an ample array of rack equipment, classic effect processors and tons of plugins for good measure. The studio's patching system also boasts patchable MIDI, video sync, ethernet, cues and loudspeaker for you to create and control a variety of recording situations. For a personal touch, our vocal booth is within a couple of feet of the producer's table and Yamaha clavinova, allowing producer and artist to interact and work out harmonies with complete separation.
Westpoint's 28-foot live room has an impressive five square metre view from the engineer's chair and is stacked with guitar amps and drums kits. Furthermore the live rooms boast ample soft seating, smart TV and air conditioning giving artists comfort, creative options and stress-free interaction with the engineer. For further speed, our live room is permanently set up with Quested v3110 mid-field monitoring so artists can listen to previous takes or mix down while relaxing to film. With its natural finish wooden floors and high ceilings, our live room also provides the perfect ambient recording space for live bands, strings, brass, drums, vocals and piano.
Westpoint's vocal booth boasts the best interactive space for producer and vocalist to work together. Various patching options - including the ability to change polar patterns during a take - gives you unrivalled speed while still being able to achieve the very best results. There is a variety of lighting and comfortable seating, too.
On top of our 3 key rooms we also have:
Our dedicated 4.5 metre cubed guitar booth is accessed from the live room and is flexible enough to play from any room in our facility. Should you want to do overdubs from the control room or record alongside other musicians in the live room with complete separation while changing setting on the head of your stack, our guitar booth will cover you.
Between the control room and live room we also have a 14-foot strip with a 5 metre square view of the live room and control room for musicians requiring separation with a good line of sight, or a secondary guitar booth with ample patching options.
Our edit suite allows assistants to work on Pro Tools session or can double as further recording space with full patching options from our control room to record from. Due to its irregular shape and high ceiling, the edit suite can be great for an alternative vocal sound or snare overdubs for those who like to dabble.
Shepherds Bush and the A40 are a mere 5 minutes drive from Westpoint Studios. Additionally, four local train stations and plenty of bus stops are within a mile of our front door. The studio also has a loading bay within a few metres of our live room making access and set up lightning quick. For peace of mind Westpoint also has gated private car parking, or for those in a rush it is also possible to park right outside - and all of this for free...
