We believe that music provides a way for people of all backgrounds to develop their creative skills, discover new ways to communicate with each other and build wide-reaching networks of collaborators and fans. That's why we consider ourselves a community business. We rely on feedback and ideas from the people who use our services and live in our local area. By listening to our community, we can contribute to its enrichment. Our clients should think of us as collaborative partners, committed to a joint success story.
The studio offers all sorts of audio services including music recording, voiceovers, audio restoration, post-production for film and video, rehearsal sessions and composition work.
Get in touch to discuss your requirements or ideas and we will be happy to advise on how we can work together to achieve them. We are also more than happy to help DIY musicians find services to self-release their music and help students with research into our industry.
Great audio comes from a bit of careful planning, listening to what you want and working out the best way to get there. We don't believe that there is a right or wrong way of doing things. Each session has a unique process, because your recording should be every bit as individual as you. We think that to develop as artists, we have to learn to experiment and communicate.
The studio is owned and run by native Derby Music stalwarts Robin Newman and Richard Collins. We each have over ten years experience of playing in bands, working in recording studios and have various sound & production qualifications on the mantlepiece. We're also friendly people and we love the creative recording process. Which means your session should be both productive and thoroughly enjoyable.
We've got a bunch of great tools to help us record your project. Microphones, pre-amps, instruments, amps, synths and all sorts of audio processors and software. We have a selection of high quality monitors and an acoustically treated control room. Perhaps above all else we have decent coffee. We firmly believe that you should choose a studio by listening to its previous work rather than looking at a gear list - so we've not bothered with one. Let's just say that if you think you need a specific piece of equipment, just ask.
We also offer a 10% discount for NUS, Over-60's, Unwaged and on bookings of 4+ consecutive days
We offer some nicely presented gift cards so that you can buy studio time for someone special. Just select how many hours you'd like to give from the list below and hit "Buy Now" to checkout via Paypal.
