Birmingham's Grammy-winning world class analogue music recording and mixing studio has a beautiful sounding piano, Pro Tools HDX and HD3, a 32 channel API console, a custom 8 channel Neve mixer sidecar, ATC main monitors and PSI & Adam nearfields, mics from Neumann & Telefunken, hardware by Neve, Teletronix & Urei, a pair of Abbey Road REDD 47 preamps and over 2000 square feet of acoustically excellent space? Everything, in fact, that even the most demanding professional might need. Surprised? Not if you have worked here already.
So what makes Birmingham's Circle Recording Studios one of the country's best? Foremost is the diversity of recording studios, designed by Northward Acoustics, on offer. Additionally the wealth of top class and well maintained, equipment (including a microphone list to die for), the creative vibe and the relaxed atmosphere make it a great studio to work in. One client called it "the only recording studio you'll ever need."
But how do our recording studios sound? In addition to the Big Room which is unusual for its open sound, variable acoustics, short reverb and lack of early reflections, we offer the unique Stone Room with its mid-scooped vibe and short but extremely intense reverb, the Wooden Room with a longer darker reverb and the White Room with a long but bright reverb. You can hear some examples of the variety of sounds we can get and music we have done here over on our 'soundfiles' page, here: http://www.circlestudios.co.uk/soundfiles. Alternatively, watch the video footage on our "Recording Drums" page so that you can see and hear the difference a room makes for yourself! Find it here: http://www.circlestudios.co.uk/recordingdrums
