STUDIOS

We have the recording studio you need. Whether you’re a solo music producer, a full-scale rock band or even a string section, across our four rooms we can provide you with a world-class experience in studio recording. Maybe that’s why we’re often hailed as the best Recording Studio in London.

With our award-winning team of Sound Engineers, our enviable selection of microphones, our abundance of kit and expertise in technology (both analogue and digital), we’ll help you create exactly the sound you need.

We have four analogue consoles to choose from to mix your recording, and can also mix to visuals for our Film and TV clients. In addition to stereo, we are specialists in surround sound 5.1 mixing for PCM, SACD, DVD/BD Audio, DVD & Blu-ray.

Some of the most important artists of all time have recorded and mixed albums at Metropolis Studios, including Queen, Michael Jackson, U2, Lady GaGa, Amy Winehouse, will.i.am, The Stone Roses, Lauryn Hill, The Verve, Adele, Rihanna and many more.

However, we don’t only work with major labels, global icons and household names. We also cater for small and developing artists, and those with private projects. We can tailor packages to suit your needs – check our i-Mixing page for more details.
