Sain Studios


There are three studios in Sain – they are fully networked so you can start your project in one studio and move to another to mix or edit. Studio 1 was originally designed to Sain’s specifications in 1980, and has been regularly up-dated over the years, but still retains its original character. It is suitable for recording choirs of up to 50 members, various instrumental ensembles up to a chamber orchestra, and includes a Yamaha grand piano. Studio 2 and 3 are ideal for recording individual voices or instruments, editing, mixing, dubbing and mastering.

Studio 1

The studio itself measures 12m x 9m and is divided into live and dead acoustic areas with an isolated recording booth. The control room measures 7.5m x 7.5m and is air conditioned.
