Feedback From Customers

 

– “The beautifully equipped Control Room, the monitoring, the surprisingly large Live Room, definitely the best piano in any London studio, but above all the personal care you take of Master Chord Studio makes it a great place to work. Thank you so much and see you again soon.”

– “If you want to feel that you have your own private studio, go to Master Chord Studio. The Main Room is surprisingly warm and live, the piano is to die for, and the service from the owner Michele is kind, attentive and supportive of great results. I recorded string quintet, harp and drums there and I am really happy with what we achieved. Ronan Phelan knows the studio like the back of his hand and delivered great sound. I will be back there as soon as I can.”

– “Master Chord Studio is a rare jewel for producers wanting to record and mix at the highest level. Not only is the facility simply world class, but at least as important, the people there are at the top of their game and helpfully, quietly and graciously get me out of all the holes I tend to dig for myself. MCS has built its reputation on cutting no corners to create one of the best recording spaces anywhere, and I have no hesitation in enthusiastically recommending it.”

– “Master Chord Studio is without doubt the best private studio in London, perhaps anywhere! Having recorded rock rhythm sections, strings, brass and everything else in between there I know the large Live Room and Booths are great sounding and flexible – and the foldback system, which is often the Achilles heel of many studios, is excellent. The fabulous Steinway D Model piano and extensive mic collection is the icing on the cake. The Control Room is marvellously equipped including the SSL4000 G+ Console and the ATC monitoring both of which sound superb. The maintenance throughout the studio is first class. Michele has built a facility that allows you to relax, focus on the music and be creative. He and his staff are always welcoming and go the extra mile to make sure your session runs smoothly.”

– “What a gem of a find Master Chord Studio is! I recorded an album at MCS in February 2020 for BBCPM with strings, woodwind, harp and piano. Isolation in the booths was excellent and the nine strings in the Live Room sounded lovely. The players of the BBC Concert Orchestra really enjoyed the room too. The icing on the cake for me is the Steinway D – absolutely beautiful to play and certainly the best grand in London studios. I highly recommend MCS for mid-size ensemble recording and thank you Michele for such a great recording experience – I will be back soon.”

– “Master Chord Studio is a wonderful find for us. Excellent facilities and everything was prepared on arrival. Top quality engineering, superb sound, very efficient and courteous staff – and an excellent Grand Piano!!! We will certainly use this studio again – I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

Simon Lole

 

– “Master Chord Studio is an amazing place where I have been recording, editing, mixing and also composing my music for many years. The Studio features some of the most modern technology and gear available and, at the same time, it offers a vintage research of perfection without compromise that in my opinion it is getting lost in other top London Studios. The Steinway D Model made in January 2019 is a pearl, the dream of every pianist, the best piano in any London or LA Studios. The heart of the Studio is the SSL 4000 G+ Console – I still think that analogue summing contributes to the warmth of the final mix; it is a shame to see that so many of the top rooms have only a controller but at MCS you can still find the real things.”

– “I’ve recorded two albums for Linn Records at Master Chord Studio. Both occasions were absolutely joyous! Michele makes you feel very ‘at home’ immediately and the space is immaculate and state of the art. The new piano made in January 2019 is utterly beautiful and there was a broad selection of mics for me to try out. I highly recommend MCS and my sincere congratulations to Michele for lovingly building and maintaining such a special place.”

Claire Martin

 

– “What a fantastic experience it is working at Master Chord Studio. The Control Room sounds fantastic, all the equipment is top notch and pristine, the Live area and Booths all record really well and the piano has to be the best in London.”

Paul Golding

 

– “I hired Master Chord Studio to record a jazz big band for a couple of different projects. Michele & Ronan made us all feel very welcome. The sound of the Live Room was superb to work with and there was excellent isolation between rhythm section and horns through the booths. I’d particularly recommend the studio for anything using acoustic piano, as the Steinway D is one of the nicest sounding instruments I have ever heard.”

Callum Au

 

– “I love recording at Master Chord Studio, as the combination of one of the best Steinway D pianos, top notch facilities, superb professionalism and friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the entire place, makes me rate this studio 10 out of 10, so this will always be my first choice! Thanks Michele for creating this state of the art Recording Studio!”

Genia Chudinovich

 

– “I have used Master Chord Studio a number of times now as both a Recording Studio and a 5.1 Mixing Room, and I have never failed to be impressed. The Live Room sounds fantastic, the desk and the equipment are kept in excellent working order, and the piano is an absolute beauty. The studio management is professional and accommodating and Michele has always made me and my colleagues – musicians, directors and producers – feel at home. MCS has become my go-to place for recording.”

Benjamin Woodgates

 

– “Being a pianist, Master Chord Studio is my favourite place to record. The Steinway Model D is an exceptional piano – which is augmented by the highest quality of equipment both in the Live Room and the Control Room. Michele’s attention to detail is second to none… His priority is always to make sure that the artist is comfortable, allowing them to perform at their best. I look forward to many more recordings at MCS.”

Dominic Ferris

 

– “I have had the great pleasure of recording and mixing at Master Chord Studio. A friend of mine had used MCS to mix his own album and highly recommended it – I would soon learn why. Michele, the owner, invited me to come visit the space before confirming my sessions and welcomed me with a cup of tea and a friendly tour. I was amazed to see how MCS was stocked with just as much (if not more) equipment than some of the bigger London studios! In my sessions, I recorded a 12-piece chorus which fit very comfortably in the Live Room, even with them all being spaced out! I also utilised a few of the many isolation booths which were a great help to me for efficiency. The Control Room is very comfortable and open – despite being underground, you never feel closed in, which is a relief when staring down the barrel of a 10-hour day! So, if you’re looking for a Recording/Mixing facility with world-class equipment, a great Live Room, and an owner that cares enough to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible, MCS is the way to go.”

Michael Elderkin

 

– “I had such an amazing experience at Master Chord Studio; the setup and the professionalism, from the word go, was phenomenal. Michele was extremely pleasurable to deal with and his hospitality was second to none. It was an honour to work with Ronan – he is such a delightful and approachable chap. We initially had Ronan as the recording engineer for the solo instruments then soon realised we wanted him throughout the entire project (including recording orchestra and final mixing). Can’t wait to be in a position to be back down there. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay from start to finish.”

Peter Connelly

 

– “Master Chord Studio is immaculately maintained and has everything you need to make the highest quality recordings, including the best commercial studio piano in London. I will definitely return.”
