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 and Logic Pro, with the option of using the Otari MTR-90 24 track analogue tape recorder.
