The Studio

The studio combines both the latest in digital recording technology alongside traditional analogue equipment.

Students enjoy learning about traditions in the world of recording music and sound so we still keep a reel to reel tape recorder in service. There are several ways to compose music in a software system. You can use a keyboard to 'perform' the different layers but if you don't play keyboard that's fine, you can programme the notes to play as you like.
