Abbey Road Studios gets a giant transformation with new recording spaces
Abbey Road Studios have added 2 new recording spaces to their internationally renowned studios in “one of the biggest events in Abbey Road Studios’ unique history”.
The two new additions to the award winning Abbey Road studio facilities opens up even more opportunities for artists, making it ‘accessible to all recording artists, from emerging songwriters and groups to established musicians’. The two new rooms have been created from a renovation of the main townhouse front room and the garage area. The new spaces are named ‘The Gatehouse’ and ‘The Front Room’ and are available at more affordable prices compared to their ‘legendary’ Studio One, Two and Three.
The Gatehouse (pictured at the top) is a modern tracking studio which includes a multi-surfaced live room and isolated vocal booth along with a large control room and mixing desk. Stocked with the must-have technology preferred by today’s artists, it’s the perfect space for a small band or vocal act and offers optional vintage gear packages on request. The room is suited to cater to both analogue and digital based recordings, being optimised for both in it’s multi-surfaced live space.
The Front Room (pictured below) meanwhile is perfect for recordings on a smaller scale. Comprising of a live room and control room, The Front Room has been carefully designed for smaller-scale recording and music production. The studio has access to Abbey Road’s extensive range of outboard and plugins, and optional vintage equipment is available on request.
Managing Director at Abbey Road Studios, Isabel Garvey said: “The opening of the new studios is one of the biggest events in Abbey Road Studios’ unique history. It shows our commitment to quality recording, the creative environment and our belief that combined with our award-winning expertise, we can attract a whole new generation of artists through our doors.
“We are investing in our core business to ensure we maintain Abbey Road as a vibrant recording studio, with the two new studios designed to expand our appeal to a wide range of music creators.” With the two new varied spaces Abbey Road now has a comprehensive offering of recording spaces with the facilities for anything from large orchestral recordings, to a single person overdubbing.
