Recording, Mixing & Mastering

A versatile recording environment that can be used for bands, choirs, vocalists, string ensembles, voice-over and even bagpipes.


Our beautiful, natural sounding live room brings out the best in acoustic instruments. The tighter, drier, booth gives a different acoustic and the opportunity to separate instruments. This is all captured with quality microphones through our Toft ATB24, featuring much of the same design and features as the legendary Trident Series 80 console.


Quality mixing can make or break a track. The studio has superb monitoring from Quested, Genelec and Dynaudio, the best software plugins from Soundtoys, Plugin Alliance, Fabfilter, Waves, Slate Digital, Softube PSP and Valhalla among others but most importantly of all, experience from years of mixing and listening. We also offer an on-line mixing service, more details can be found here.


The final stage before unleashing your tracks on the world Edwin St offers a professional mastering service to give the final polish and sheen to your mixes. Mastering can make a good mix sound great and a great mix sound stellar. It isn't just making everything loud, it's making all your mixes sit together, flow and sound good on different systems For a more detailed explanation of mastering, see my guide here.
