Forbes Small Icon

Through a combination of carefully crafted sound, natural light and high quality equipment, Studio One is the focal point of Forbes Street Studios.

Housing Australia’s only Barefoot MiniMain 12 speakers, the control room centres around an analogue SSL AWS924 console with DAW integration, Pro Tools 12 HDX and a selection of must-have outboard, plugins and synthesisers.

The live room accommodates 10+ musicians simultaneously,  includes acoustic baffles, Ludwig drums and Gibson and Fender guitars, and is adjoined by separate vocal and amp booths.

Book a pre-session tour to experience the space for yourself.
