Recording Studios

Studio 1 is UCLan’s flagship recording studio. It was re-modelled recently with equipment being updated on a continuing regular basis,  this studio is an industry standard recording facility.

Recording Studios

Acoustic Specialists, The Studio People, were called upon to design the rooms and ensure they offered a professional audio working environment to work in. The equipment list in this room is extensive, and features equipment from Avid, Audient, Neve and Manley amongst others.

Recording Studio 2 is a fully featured post production, dubbing, ADR, Foley and small ensemble recording studio. The Control Room is large enough to house a class so that lectures can be delivered in a relevant space using the equipment as opposed to reading a handout.

This studio incorporates a 5.1 Surround Sound system by Genelec perfectly mated to an Neve Genesys Black 32 Channel Mixing Desk with Surround Panner to allow users to ‘touch’ their surround mixes. In conjunction with a host of outboard processors this studio allows dub mixes to be worked on through the whole workflow, even down to burning to Blu-Ray.

Recording Studio 3 is a stepping stone from the Project Studios into the main Recording Studios. It features the same software setup as the Project Studios but incorporates an Avid S3  mixer front end and has an expanded selection of outboard equipment and an additional Mic Pre unit. The aim of this studio is to allow users to build on routing theory and principles learnt in the smaller project studios to enable transition into the main Recording Studios to be easier and more fluid. This room has been designed to function the same as the Project Studios
