    NEW! We are now offering Dolby Atmos / Spatial Mixing services – Read more here

    Through a combination of carefully crafted sound, natural light and high quality equipment, Studio 1 is the focal point of Forbes Street Studios.

    Home to Australia’s only Barefoot MiniMain 12 speakers, the control room centres around an analogue SSL AWS924 console with DAW integration, Pro Tools HDX and a selection of must-have outboard, plugins and synthesisers. We are also fully equipped for Dolby Atmos / Spatial mixing, with a 9.1.4 Genelec monitoring system.

    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.
