Recording Studio Floor

We offer two adjacent isolated recording environments large enough to record a full band completely live if required whilst giving excellent acoustic separation. Musicians are invited to use our extensive selection of vintage and modern backline at the studio.

Studio Floor (Dead) 22' by 30'

A highly damped room, suitable for recording vocals and virtually any instrumental work.

Studio Floor (Live) 22' by 15'

Ideal for that "Bonham" drum sound! A bright, live sounding room, suitable for recording drums, percussion, brass or any instruments requiring a natural, live ambience.

Excellent visual communication between both live and dead areas of the studio and the control room is a feature of Foel's construction, enabling musicians and producer to remain in visual contact whilst recording. Additional instrument and speaker tie-lines from the control room allow the other ancillary rooms of the building to be used as recording spaces providing extra versatility.
