Master Chord Studio is a modern recording facility thought with acoustics and ergonomics in mind.
All rooms are carefully built with the best solutions and materials: each room has its own independent floating floor, walls and ceiling, built by different layering materials and thickness in order to create a solid yet live structure, which reacts to vibrations in a natural way, letting the musician “feel” his performance and not only hear it. This technique ensures an incredible insulation between the rooms, to allow modern multitrack recording and mixing to be carried out with the lowest possible leaks between the rooms. If you like to work “all in one room recording”, the booth’s doors can be left open, letting the sound spread from one room to the others, creating these amazing “ensemble” ambience. All rooms are equipped with regulated power outlets, heating/cooling and filtered fresh air systems, noiseless and low consumption LED lighting systems and carefully designed bespoke acoustic solutions built using eco-friendly and an allergic materials only.
All these features contribute to make Master Chord Studio as one of the finest Recording and Mixing facility in London.
