Does anyone know of any music studios around here which are reasonably priced to go in and record with an engineer? Bearing in mind I may go in on my own (and will therefore be the only one paying) I need to make sure it's not overpriced.
Equally as much, it would be nice if any suggestions are for studios that have a bit of character and aren't too messy - I'm not picky by any stretch of the imagination, but I have rehearsed in studios where I've had to move rubbish to have a place to stand!
It would be a major bonus if you know of any studios where the engineers are also able to make a musical contribution if asked...!!!
My daughter and son in law have written some great music and my daughter has recorded it in his back bed room with him playing a great guitar! I must be honest James when I heard the c.d. for the first time I was shocked.. it was great in the industry supposedly.......Any way ..good luck....I bet your a million times better than the Pop Idol winner! :-)
Well, aforementioned PWs studio is situated in Vine Yard SE1, but is probably v. expensive - and across the way is another studio on the site of the space he vacated - but I recall they may specialise in house / garage / shed / lean-to or whatever the latest spiffy stuff is called these days. That's not very useful is it? but I hope you find something suitable.
Not sure if I'm jumping on this thread a little late, but I work at Cybersound in Deptford which, while being nearer the cheap'n'cheerful end of the market than some studios mentioned in this thread, is perfectly nice, pretty roomy, and we get a good sound.
I've engineered members of Morcheeba and Feeder, as well as better-known local acts like Menlo Park and a large bundle of less well-known ones. I also play lots of guitarlike instruments, program, and write, so I can help with the actual tunes too.
