About

The acoustic design and 5.1 monitoring in Studio 2 make it one of the best mix rooms in the world. Whether using the classic SSL analogue console with a wide range of vintage outboard or Pro Tools mixing, the spacious control room provides the ideal creative environment. An adjoining ante-room can be also used for editing, writing, ADR or as a small vocal/instrument booth.

Scores for Judy, Rocketman, Mission: Impossible, A Very English Scandal, Black Swan, Annihilation and a host of other movies and TV shows have taken their final shape in here. Van Morrison, George Michael and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are some of the artists who have mixed albums in this room.
