Live Recording

If you’re looking to create a live album, or simply capture a live performance to review, we offer live multi-track recording for bands and solo artists.
We have all the necessary kit to mic up drums, amps and audience, to take feeds from DIs and microphones, so we can record every part of your performance. We can also mix and master the tracks for you.

We have captured audio at live performances across the UK, in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Exeter, Hampshire and so on. Venues have included pubs (a lot of pubs), clubs, concert halls, outdoor stages (including Car Fest) and street performances.

As mentioned, once we have captured your performance, we can then mix them down (adding EQ, compression etc on every track) and master them (ensure all tracks sound as good as possible, with consistency across the whole gig).
