Recording@Music Base

Music Base Edinburgh offers 2 completely separate state of the art recording studio facilities. Whatever your recording needs, we can cater for a wide range of recording requirements from simple production, mixing and tracking to full band recordings. Our equipment is state of the art with the latest in hardware and software.

Our studios are linked to our 2 main rehearsal/live areas which can accommodate larger bands and ensembles. The live rooms are 8 meters by 4.5 meters and we can split recording between the 2 live rooms for greater separation and functionality.

Head producer at the complex is producer/writer/musical, David Whitmey with live/recording credits from Take That, Mika, The Saturdays, Sugababes, The Wanted to KT Tunstall. We have 15 years experience in London, LA, Tokyo and New York recording/producing pop music right through to heavier rock production.

Our prices are £30 per hour to a maximum of £200 per day (8 hours) but longer term projects are negotiable by request. Prices include engineer/producer. Sessions without an engineer are also available by request.

Our current gear inventory is too long to list here but the following is a selection of the main equipment in our control rooms and live areas.
