If you’re looking to create a live album, or simply capture a live performance to review, we offer live multi-track recording for bands and solo artists.
We have all the necessary kit to mic up drums, amps and audience, to take feeds from DIs and microphones, so we can record every part of your performance. We can also mix and master the tracks for you.

What People Say
All the sessions were relaxed, but professional … The finished audiobook sounds excellent – clean and well edited. Great!

The live recording went better than we could have imagined, especially considering how tight we were for space. The mix is spot on.
