Sun Recording Studios


Sun Studios features a 40 channel SSL G Series console and Automation. Sun live rooms have recently undergone major surgery, with a new vocal booth, a dead room and 2 amp booths, added to a now larger main live room. Perfect for tracking live but keeping much desired separation when recording.

The studio runs both Pro Tools HD 3 and Logic Pro Studio, with the option of using the Otari MTR-90 24 track analogue tape recorder.
