Space

The key to a great recording is the sound of the rooms in the studio itself and at Muthers we have some amazing sounding spaces. Our control room has a large, dry wood cabin feel, it’s great for recording acoustic instruments and voice. The smaller live room is acoustically dead and this allows any sound to be captured cleanly & accurately whilst our large, open conservatory space makes any drum kit sound Huge and the room is large enough to track a big band, choir or even a small orchestra!

Mixing & Mastering

If you already have a recording and need it to sound professional and up to broadcast standard then we also offer a mixing and mastering service. We can master to 1/2″ tape if you ‘d prefer a more fuzzy analogue sound and some of Dave’s work work has been featured on Sky Sports, Channel 4 and BBC.  Issac’s work has also been broacast on Radio 1 and both engineers have releases on various labels.

We use some of the best audio units for mixing such as the Waves gold bundle and  SSL collection, Brainworx, Slate Digital all bundle, Avid and Eventide.
