At Voltalab, recording and production is in our DNA. We’ve carefully created a warm and friendly client-led recording space where we can help artists and musicians achieve their ideal sounds, with phenomenal quality output.
The studio is set up for all scenarios. We have isolation capabilities to record a full live band and are also equipped for multitrack recording, capturing one musician at a time. With the whole studio connected, performers have as much flexibility as they need – for example, the guitarist working with the producer in the control room whilst tracking their amp in the live room.
Each piece of the studio’s impressive kit has been hand selected to help you make amazing music. Artists benefit from a classic microphone selection, like Neumann, Shure, vintage STCs and AKGs, along with a pre-amp selection that includes Neve, SSL and Audient. Adjustable acoustic panels help achieve a clear and distinctive sound quality. Spoken word recordings like audiobooks, voiceovers and ADR benefit from our floating floor, which keeps the live room silent and isolated.
We have great relationships with the best session musicians on the scene and can help you source them for your project. They know how we work and vice versa, meaning a smooth collaboration for our artists. If you’re mid-recording and need a bit of additional production support and guidance, we can help with that too. So if your bedroom demo needs live drums, or your vocals need the highest quality room and mics to finish them off to the uppermost standard, we can help. Our supplementary recording will complete your project to the highest quality.
Add to the mix more than a decade’s worth of sound engineering and production expertise, and it’s clear that your recording is in the safest of hands at Voltalab Sound Studios.
Both attended and unattended mix services are available at Voltalab, the latter available from anywhere in the world via our easy-to-use online upload service.
The studio is equipped with choice outboard such as Distressors and classic reverbs like the AKG BX20 and EMT 140. Pro Tools, Logic and Cubase are available, as well as a full selection of plug-ins and virtual instruments, from Universal Audio, Waves and Soundtoys to Arturia, Native Instruments and UVI. Artists benefit from exceptional monitoring quality from B&W, PMC and Yamaha which allow for great referencing and accuracy. The control room’s custom-made Neve console provides renowned Neve EQ and compression, as well as famed analog summing benefits.
Each piece of our equipment has been chosen with precision in mind. Please get in touch if you have any questions about our kit or processes. Let’s start a conversation on how we’ll achieve the best results for your project.
As well as the usual recording, production and mixing services on offer at Voltalab, we also provide an expanded suite of services for recording artists. In addition to project managed audio, we can help with video, design and visuals, taking the pressure off you, and helping you get on with what you do best. Our services are designed to help complete your project easily and to impeccable standards. So if you need input on things like sleeve artwork and music videos, we can help.
From collaborating on pre-production to managing the project in its entirety, we can help you plan and realise your vision, before you’ve even walked through the door. Make use of our recording industry contacts to achieve the highest quality finishes for your digital, CD or vinyl release.
We’ve built Voltalab from scratch, we know the space and the industry inside out and we’re here to help you make incredible music. Get in touch today.
