Want to book Studio 2?

Church Studio 2’s has undergone a huge reconstruction designed by the Walters-Storyk Design Group. The space has now become a phenomenal SSL studio with a SSL 4000G console. The entrance to the studio leads you into a spacious 7m x 7m live room. There is a tremendous choice of microphones and backline that Church 2 clients have exclusive access to, but in addition to this is a gigantic floating equipment spec shared with the building’s other two studios, and will be subject to availablilty on a first-come-first-served basis. No matter what, you won’t be left short on gear when working here.

The live room alone is big enough to record 4-5 piece bands, but there is also a large booth that can accomodate drums providing isolation. Clients at Church 2 will have their own private and luxurious lounge to use, plus the communal kitchen located on the same floor.

The Church Studio 2’s equipment spec is a glittering display of world class gear. Leading the way, is the studio’s original SSL 4000G console. A complete revamp has vastly improved the console since its last use. As a result, this is now a pristine quality board easily keeping up with the standards of its accompanying gear. Most notably Paul’s incredibly powerful custom-made Augspurger Monitors with horn compression drivers and 4 x 18″ subs. Behind the desk are several racks stacked with outboard modules: AMS, Bricasti, Lexicon, DBX, Eventide, Manley, Neve, Empirical Labs and countless other leading brands are all here. There is a fantastic array of gear to sink your teeth into, plus a huge selection of floating equipment shared with the other studios in the building.
