Studio 1 is home to Britannia Row's famous vintage Neve 5116 console. This is where the long history of major recordings at Britannia Row continues. From the 80's with Pink Floyd's "The Wall", the 90's with Soul to Soul's "Club Classics Vol.1" and Pulp's "His 'n' Hers" to the 00's with Snow Patrol's "The Final Straw", Embrace's "This New Day", The Verve's "Forth" and Wolfman with Pete Doherty's "This is for Lovers", the tradition lives on. Unsigned artists such as 6 Day Riot, Deeds of the Nameless and Sepsis have also taken their first steps on the ladder to fame in Studio 1.
The naturally lit live room is ideally suited to all types of recording; anything from full-on band sessions to string sections, brass, or drums. The quality of the variable acoustics, separate spaces and our microphone collection - containing all the original Floyd era classics as well as more recent interesting and obscure additions - means that conditions are right for the best possible recordings.
The control room, as well as the automated Neve console, has one of the finest collections of vintage analogue outboard anywhere as well as Pink Floyd's unique EMT Quad echoplate, loads of hardware processors, Studer tape machines and a Pro Tools HD3 rig with tons of plug-ins.
