Studio Hire

We have two audio studios at MediaCityUK, Manchester. Our sound engineers are specialists in ISDN and Source-Connect voiceover sessions, radio days, audio post production, audiobook projects, live broadcasts, podcast recordings and tape sync.

Studio A

Studio A has an air conditioned 3m x 3m booth that comfortably seats up to six guests for radio days, live broadcasts, podcast recordings and tape sync. We use Neumann U87 and TLM 103 microphones as standard, and the space is fully soundproofed with professional acoustic treatment.

The adjacent control room uses the latest ProTools software on an iMac Pro, with ISDN, IP, ipDTL, SIP, Source-Connect, and Cleanfeed connectivity. Studio A is also Google Meets, Zoom and Skype ready, with cameras and a 42’ LED screen making remote audio visual sessions simple.

Guests are well looked after with comfortable sofa seating, high speed WiFi and complimentary tea, coffee and soft drinks.

All rates include an engineer, secure audio delivery, domestic ISDN line charges and a line test prior to the session.

We know schedules and deadlines can be tight so we’ll always try our best to accommodate last minute and off-peak bookings.
