In 2020 the studio undertook a major upgrade.  A new Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) was installed and additional outboard equipment added to ensure that the sound recorded and produced is exactly as it should be.

Once recorded we can apply a range of effects as needed, compression, reverb, delay, modulation, chorus, mic and amp simulators and even if needed pitch correction to bring back into pitch that flat note on what otherwise would be a perfect performance.

Editing down to the actual waveform is possible to remove any unwanted noise, pops, clicks, or the odd sniffle and cough. We also have a range of instruments and amplifiers for use.
