Greetings from the brain of EVE, transmitting and receiving via our Type 316 patch bay, the most reliable there is for complete modular connectivity. A wealth of outboard gear and the awesome sounding “McKenzie” vintage 26/4 custom recording console. Industry recognised monitoring includes the ever classic NS10’s, Klein and Hummel O300 active monitors and a Quested main monitor system. Sessions are typically recorded into our 32 in and out Protools 10 system but we also enjoy recording to tape on the superb Studer MK1 discrete 1″ 8 track tape recorder.
The silver room is our main live recording space with custom built modular absorbers and diffusers installed. We are renowned for getting great drum sounds quickly and simply, whether with your own kit or our 60’s Slingerland Artist which is always ready for action. AK recording baffles are available to tighten a source or for separation in the room. Line drivers are used to isolate amplifiers in different rooms if desired. Our famous BBC Marconi and STC Ball and Biscuitless microphones hang from the ceiling and are wired directly into the patch bay for fast capture.
Both our upright pianos sound incredible in the acoustically untreated Red Room. As do the tubular bells and 1920’s vibraphone which can also be found in the space. The conscious decision to keep the natural room acoustics intact allows for instruments to sound as vibrant and exciting as possible. Sounds great for percussion, acoustic instruments, rhythmical electronics, reamping and re-vibing.
With its tight acoustic properties this is an ideal space to record any lead vocals. Mix that with signal from some of our vintage reverbs and the battle is already won. Singers frequently comment on how comfortable they feel performing in the space. Bass is often favoured to be isolated out in the dry room during live tracking.
Named for the obvious reason. A well rounded backline of guitar amps and cabs resides in the space. Tie lines for sends and microphones are wired and boxes to raise amps to avoid early floor reflections are available. There’s also a nice collection of fundamental fx pedals for use as well.
With its vibrant dynamics the echo room is a great flavour to add to any instrument or performance. With ambient access from the amp and dry room sonic possibilities awaken giving your sounds individuality. Breath life into drum triggers, give soft synths space in the mix, ambience on a guitar solo, the options are endless…
As well as an incredible recording studio we also have the space to house our guests. Staying over is free for bookings over 3 days and just £10 a head for bookings under. There are 4 bedrooms in the building with space for 7 to sleep comfortably, a large bathroom with shower and bath to keep fresh, and a nice kitchen to prepare and cook food in. More Info
