It's ace. pretty much as cetral as you like too. We only went there as it was opening to practice so don't know too much about recording side. We did manage to get a live room recording really easily as it was all set up.

Don't quote me on this but I think Indian Red Lopez recorded there. It does look pretty sweet and pretty reasonably priced for what you get to use. I'd love to have a TL Audio desk! I think they look lovely. Not had a chance to use one yet but all tube preamps?!? I reckon it'll be pretty tasty sounding.

City Centre, 3hr practice, 26, nice gear and space? That's a keeper. MV still get my vote up here for nice atmosphere, good gear, and well priced. But this is a different kettle of fish (looking at the pics at least).

If it is the place I'm thinking of then I believe the business is owned by one of the guys from Simply Red...but again I might just be getting confused on that one. It certainly has had a lot of money poured into it from somewhere.

Indian Red Lopez did indeed record there. Not Simply Red, but Simple Minds, close though. The main engineer there is a guy called Bruce Rintoul, really good guy. He is a young engineer but damn he is good. You can listen to the recordings done there on their myspace. I havn't been down to the studios yet but i think they have some rather tasty gear. Neumann, Ampeg ect.

Oh yeah and the guy that was working at the start, expect he's still there, was really helpful. Live room recording for a small cost is an excellent feature!!
