Studio Control Room
The comfortable, clean, air conditioned control room here at the Metech recording studio is ideal for both relaxing and performing.
We have a dedicated vocal room outside, with some artists choosing to work with a producer/engineer in the studio control room. Either room captures superb vocals, using a Neumann U87 mic and Avalon pre-amp compressor, which being digitally converted using the SSL Alpha Link at up to 96kHz.
The recording studio facility, with engineer is charged at £35ph.
The fantastic Audient Zen console we have here allows us to root up to six stereo headphone mixes, tiered with levels to suit a performers requirements. We have an automated version of the console.
Three monitor options are available and we choose the faithful, industry standard NS10m's alongside powered Tannoy with sub and other Hi-fi options.
Metech have invested in Waves, Universal Audio, Slate Digital and many more plug-ins alongside numerous synths. Also externally there is Roland GAIA and JP-8080 plus guitar and bass instruments available.
Most of our engineers use Logic, however we do have ProTools 9 available on an 8 core mac.
For recording bands at Metech we have the option of the acoustically treated live room here at Millennium Studios. It's an easy load in with plenty of private parking available. The site runs 24hr security.
There are 24 tracks running from the live room into the control room, allowing up to 16 Audient mic pre-amps, plus further options through outboard Avalon pre's. More info on the Live Room
We also have a second small, sound-treated room available which is ideal for vocals and guitar tracking, mic'ing amp's for monitoring through the desk in the control room. You could also record percussion and smaller drum set-up's in that room.
