Our aim is simple: to provide the highest level of professional recording at an affordable price. We pride ourselves on the high technical specification of our equipment coupled with the dedication to perfection on all projects. Our recording studio consists of two live rooms and a control room and we can record, mix and master everything from a demo CD to broadcast ready radio adverts, seminars and even a live concert.
At Central Studio we believe that the calibre of engineer is equally as important as the quality of the studio you work in. A great engineer paired with a great studio will produce fantastic results, and so we are proud to offer a variety of top recording and mixing talents specialising in many different genres, who you can hire for your session. Their highly trained ears will work to capture your sound in the best way possible.
What you can expect
Whether you want to record in an acoustically treated live room or in our live music venue for a full day or a single hour, we can help. Your music will then be mixed in our control room, as the engineer tailors, edits and perfects your sound. As many musicians often produce their own work, you’re involvement in all mixing processes is welcomed. We also offer a mastering service for your tracks, adding the depth and warmth that you would expect to find in a professional end product.
Getting your sound right
We have a range of instruments and amps that are available for free as part of the studio hire package. We can also cater to your needs should you require drum kits, guitar amps, synths, bass amps, keyboards and grand pianos. We offer rates for session musicians to work with your creativity, ascending your music to higher levels.
Our sound engineers edit your music using Pro-Tools HD 10, the most professional and industry standard audio interface there is. We can record 24 audio inputs simultaneously, up to 192khz at 24 bit. With a final mix of 192 channels, allowing huge amounts of processing power for our range of professional audio plug-ins: Waves, SSL and Universal Audio to name a few. The studio boasts a wide range of virtual instruments from Native Instruments to East West Orchestra bundles. Guitar Rig 3 will help bring your guitar sounds to the forefront of your mix, helping to provide that professional finish.
It doesn’t stop there either; we house analogue SSL, Universal Audio and Buzz Audio pre-amps and compressors that fill your music with warmth, depth and tone. Your mix is then controlled on the Digidesign Control 24 digital interface that controls all the parameters of your mix.
Central Studio is able to supply sound, lighting equipment, and special effects equipment to both professional and amateur groups.
