We took the most delicious part of the recording chain and threw everything else out of the window.

THE ROOMS

The quality of the room is where it all begins. Our live areas have been designed by The Studio Wizard to ensure the best possible sonic environment for recording.

As well as sounding amazing the acoustically balanced rooms have completely silent, fresh air ventilation to keep that oxygen pumping when you are in the middle of a long session.

Both of our live rooms also have a dead side and a live side we we achieved with gorgeous floor to ceiling stone walls.

THE MICROPHONES

Our microphone list is small and mighty!  We have a grand total of 26 microphones made up of only 14 different models… modest by any studio’s standard.

However, we went for quality over quantity selecting industry go to models that ensure the best possible outcome.

For our complete list of microphones please CLICK HERE.

THE CABLES

Small, wiry and packing a mean punch… the legendary Van Damme cable range was an obvious choice for us!

Powering audio systems for over 25 years, from Abbey Road Studios to live gigs in the biggest stadiums, the Van Damme cables are designed and built specifically to ensure they always provide the best quality available.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us on 020 3874 0044.

THE PREAMPS

We have two preamp models, one brand and one man… Rupert Neve!

Between Studio A and Studio B there are a total of 40 1081 channels and 8 1073DPA channels which is a huge part of the Copper Brown sound. Not a single one of our industry standard microphones reach a final recording without first being gently caressed by a Neve preamp to give it that analogue warmth. Mmm toasty!

If you would like to make a booking, please contact us HERE.

THE CONVERTOR

To ensure the best possible digital conversion, both our studios are fitted with Apogee Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt AD/DA Converters.

Championed by world class engineers Bob Ludwig, Spike Stent & Rafa Sardina, to complete the final piece of the recording puzzle we chose Apogee to provide us with a 1.35 ms round-trip latency and 24bit recording for that extra headroom.

To request our rates, please click HERE.

THE MIXING SUITE

Like our live rooms, our mixing suite in Studio A has been designed by The Studio Wizard to be a perfectly balanced and controlled area.

Future proofed for 5.1 sound design, our mixing suite is relaxed and completely sound proofed to allow you the perfect environment to create a balanced mix.

To book a session at Copper Brown, please contact us HERE.

THE FADERS

Whilst we have given way to the mixing console for a bank of Neve preamps, there is no more enjoyable way to carve a mix than by physically riding the faders.

We have a total of 48 Avid Artist Mix faders and pans to enable us to mix music projects and sound for picture with greater speed and ease than a mouse.

To see our full range of peripherals, please click HERE.

THE MONITORS

When it comes to monitoring, no solution is one size fits all.

We have a selection that covers all bases, from our Amphion One15’s unforgiving clarity, to our Barefoot Sound MicroMain35’s that pack a punch and precisely model the essential response and translation characteristics of other classic studio monitors.

To book a mixing session, please call us on 020 3874 0044.

THE SUM OF ALL THINGS

The final stage of our mixing process involves summing down to our Solid State Logic X-DESK for a SuperAnalogue™ (analogue purity at the highest level) 16 Channel Mixdown.

This completes our audio chain giving us an industry standard mics via Neve preamps through Van Damme cables signal path, then AD/DA conversion through an Apogee Symphony summed to SSL. Nice!

To book a recording, please contact us HERE.

OUR PLUGINS

When it comes to plugins, we went in hard! The pinnacle of our collection is the UAD Ultimate collection with two UAD-2 Satellite Octo Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators.

We could tell you all about it but it’s probably better if you check out the hilarious video featuring music legend Ed Cherney…

THE BACKLINE

We have a choice selection of backline here at Copper Brown.

From amps to organs with the pride of place being our 6 piece Spaun drum kit, all of the backline is included in the price of recording so feel free to browse our backline list and let us know if there is anything you fancy using on your next session.

You can view our full backline HERE.

THE VIDEO EDITING SUITE

Copper Brown also sports its very own Video Editing Suite with a 5k iMac, a 4k Colour grading monitor and a reference television so you can see what your video is going to look like across all formats.

For a full list of the equipment in the suite please click HERE and our Dry Hire rates can be found HERE.

THE CHILLOUT

At Copper Brown we know your recording session isn’t all work and no play so we spent serious consideration on our chill out facilities.

While you’re here, feel free to play Mario Kart on our life size projector, work on your fussball skills or make yourself a sandwich in our kitchen.

You are also welcome to use our shower facilities should you be on your way to a gig after your session and need to freshen up. For more information, feel free to call us on 020 3874 0044.
