NB: New equipment, microphones, instruments and software are constantly being added to and/or upgraded.


Live Room A is ‘floating’, air-conditioned and fitted with Quadratic Residue Diffusers based on prime7 computer calculations that phase-disperse high frequency reflections to remove coloration and echoes while eliminating the dreaded vacuum-like ‘totally dead’ space.

That’s the techo talk! But this greatly enhances the natural sound of acoustic instruments, drums and high volume amplified electric guitars without compromising the sonic quality and timbre of vocal recordings.

Helmholtz Resonators control low frequency standing-waves in three planes  and  soft acoustic treatment on walls and ceiling create a very comfortable   performance space.


                                               Live Room A.    Useable floor space is 4.3m x 2.3m. Height is 2.5m
