Our small and friendly studio is situated within the Malthouse, in the heart of Barking's creative quarter.  Specialising in composition, editing, mixing and post-production, the studio is also set up to record vocalists and singer-songwriters.  Small but perfectly formed, the studio is based around a 48-channel Cadac J-series analogue console, supported by a combination of industry-standard and esoteric outboard gear including compressors, reverbs and EQs from Neve, API, Bricasti and others, with a range of microphones from Neumann, Manley, AKG, Shure and Rode to ensure that whatever your style, we can capture it perfectly.  We have a full range of music production plugins from Waves, Universal Audio and FabFilter, and a vast virtual instrument library to generate everything from a vintage grand piano sound to a modelled Moog synth to a full orchestra, and from the latest EDM beats to a classic 808 drum machine to the sound of a 60s kit from Abbey Road.
