The studio here at The Other Operation is geared towards voiceover, audiobooks and other spoken word production projects, including podcast recording and interviews, and has a dry, natural acoustic. There are eight lines, useable as any combination of microphone or cue feeds, and we have a growing selection of microphones to suit different needs.
We also have USB3 plumbed from the control room computer into the live room. This allows keyboards (including our Kawai CN35) to send MIDI to Pro Tools.
There’s a fully automated record lamp, showing record-ready (or pre-roll if desired) and record states.
The studio is not suitable for ensemble recording – there just isn’t the space. I take such clients to other studios. However, we can record almost any kind of solo or overdub (though probably not drums), and there’s space for two musicians to play together.
A typical example of the kind of music work we do here is to record a vocal or solo instrument over an existing backing track. If you need something bigger than this, please get in touch anyway – we can use another venue.
