Edinburgh's Offbeat Recording Studio

Established in 1992 on Edinburgh's Royal Mile 

Our atmospheric and well equipped studio has been involved in many successful projects.
Award Winners include a No.1 in the Classical Charts and a Classical Brit Award, 2 top ten hits in the World Music Charts and The Stanley Kubrick Award for best Documentary at the New York Film Awards.

We're a BBC Approved studio and make regular recordings for BBC 1, BBC Radio 1 and Radio 4, and BBC Byte Size Online. 

The studio is a vehicle for our own music production projects which regularly achieve National airplay.

We operate a Mac based Logic Audio set-up using Metric Halo converters along with the amazing DM2000 mixer which boasts 96 channels and up to 96k bandwidth. 

Our equipment includes a range of musical instruments including Acoustic & Electric guitars, Electric Bass and Electronic and Acoustic drums. A huge sample library and a top class selection of plug-ins.

You are most welcome to book the studio for your own self producting projects, or if you wish to bring in your own producer. We typically require advance notice for new projects.
