Recording Studio A
Studio A is one of the finest recording rooms in London, featuring an SSL AWS900 console with the latest Pro Tools and a 32 I/O HDX rig.
With more and more artists becoming eco-aware it was only a matter of time before a fully-fledged eco studio became a reality. Studio A is the first solar powered professional recording studio in Europe.
