 Analogue Vs digital – discuss. Most artists choose to record on the analogue multi track recorder and mix to Protools and we certainly get very good results that way.  Analogue gives a warm solid bass and good crisp highs and this is retained in the final mix. Can bands bring in their own engineer or do they have to solely use a house engineer? Solely use a House engineer, but they are welcome to sit in with our engineers to get the sounds they are looking for.  Is the studio capable of holding a full band at once for recording? Yes…we have 3 separate studios that are connected directly to the Control Room and are visiblyaccessible via soundproof windows with each other and the Control Room. We’re an impoverished indie band – do you offer any deals for acts in our situation? We are always open to helping out all artists wherever possible. Do you have any in-house instruments at the studio acts can use, or is it totally BYO?
