Introducing: Studio Two by Actual Music
Actual Music are delighted to introduce our new production facility & mix room dubbed ‘Studio Two’. This is an unabashed fully-digital set up featuring latest-gen UA Apollo conversion, industry-leading ATC monitoring and a huge palette of virtual instruments and plug-ins. The room is fully treated with GIK Acoustic panels delivering an excellent critical listening experience & efficient ‘in the box’ workflow for users.
At the heart of the setup is a top-spec 2020 27” iMac, stably running Pro Tools 2020.12 & Logic Pro X via a Universal Audio Apollo x8, supplemented by a UAD Satellite Quad.
Our plug-in suite includes full collections from UAD, SoundToys, FabFilter, Celemony & Slate Digital.
We also have a huge array of virtual instruments & sample libraries controlled by Arturia KeyLab 88. These include Spectrasonics Keyscape & Omnisphere; Native Instruments Massive, FM8, Absynth, Reaktor, Kontakt, Battery 4 & all other Komplete Ultimate instruments; BBC Symphony Orchestra Professional from Spitfire Audio, ANA2 and Arturia Analog Lab.
Studio Two is an ideal space for vocal or acoustic guitar recording, with a small but useful mic locker featuring Shure SM7B, Aston Origin, Audio-Technica AT4040 and Townsend Labs Sphere L22, alongside the Aston Halo reflection filter.
The space also houses video production facilities including Sony A6600 mirrorless DSLR & 16-55mm G lens, lighting from Phottix and Final Cut Pro X. This video set up is ideal for the static capture of hi-quality 4K video while recording, and users can benefit from the studio’s ultrafast 300mbps fibre broadband for project download & upload.
Studio Two is available for day dry hire, for producers & artists wanting an acoustically isolated setup equally adept for tracking, editing & mixing.
Studio Two is also Actual Music’s current primary base for production & mix commissions for our in-house team of Jamie Turner and Arthur Phillips.
The studio is located in Blackburn town centre, easily accessible by train or car. Bookings are subject to our COVID-secure policies & guidance.
