About Brixton Hill recording

Our fully equipped music production facility can record up to 24 inputs. The studios are designed from the ground up to accommodate a huge range of sound recording situations. Each room is set up the way it should be – with all the tools needed for making great records. 

You can make a radio session quality live recording in our live room or a regular multi-track recording with overdubs.

We also offer an 24 & 8-track all analogue recording package. If you need one, we can even provide you with a professional session musician. Each session will come with either an assistant or a house engineer, depending on your needs.

live room

Our large 345 square ft. live room has 10 ft. high ceilings, acoustic treatment designed by Stephen ‘Fritz’ Pickford of eHz Design (Paul Weller, Aphex Twin, Guy Chambers), discreet inflow air-conditioning and includes a beautiful Bechstein grand piano. 

With enough room to accommodate a full band and enough tie-lines through to our control room, you can track all of your musicians at once if you want to. Mobile acoustic baffles allow for instruments and amps to be sectioned off and the room can be configured for a spacious drum ambiance or for a tighter, controlled sound.

control room

Our control room is centred around an Audient ASP8024 HE and an Apogee Symphony I/O MK II 24×24 into Pro Tools and Logic running on a Mac Pro 8 Core.

This high-end, pristine signal path is complimented by a great selection of vintage and modern outboard. Preamps, eq, compression and FXs by API, Midas, Glensound, Calrec, Universal Audio, Bricasti, AMS, Roland, DAV, Warm Audio, AEA, dbx, Vintech, TLA and more.
