Welcome to Broadoak Studios
It's all about feel, vibe and authenticity here at Broadoak. We are dedicated to achieving excellent results, no matter what size project or budget we are working with. Inspired by the great studios of past decades and the many classic albums they have produced, we have invested heavily in great vintage technology, alongside all of the cutting edge digital tools you would expect in a modern recording studio.
Our main live room is comfortable, full of atmosphere and has a high oak beamed ceiling which gives a great sound and acoustic environment. We can even change the colour of the lighting to suit your preference! The studio is geared towards recording live performances, where the whole band can play together (the only way to capture the energy and feel of a real performance), and each musician has their own elegantly simple headphone mixer, allowing everyone to hear exactly what they need to give their best performance.
Our control room is based around a vintage Raindirk Series III console which used to belong to Olympic Studios in London during the late 70's - 80's, where many classic albums were recorded and mixed by artists including Queen, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and many more. Needless to say, it's a beautiful sounding desk! And a quantum leap up from the 'in the box' plug-in only based mixes that are so common today.
We are able to offer a complete, one-stop solution for all your recording and production needs, from tracking to mixing, from production to CD manufacture, plus of course, our mastering services. For our online mastering, we offer a turnaround time as fast as 24 hours, while attended mastering sessions are available by appointment. We also perform audio restoration including removal of hiss, vinyl crackle and scratches, repairs to tape drop outs etc. We have restored and re-mastered a great many re-issued albums as diverse as Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong to classical recordings to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
We also have a smaller, pre & post production room suitable for smaller sessions, overdubs, editing and graphic design.
Broadoak Studios, run by producer and composer Harvey Summers with assistant engineer Glen Stebbings, is set in rural Sussex, has plenty of free parking, an amazingly inspiring atmosphere (which all of our clients have commented on!), comfortable working environment, friendly, professional service and freshly ground coffee!
Whatever your recording or music production requirements, with over 20 years professional, commercial experience, we pride ourselves on offering the quality of service and degree of finesse and attention to detail associated with the finest recording studios and producers around.
