Maybank Studios is based in a converted Victorian bakery in the Southside of Glasgow, less than a mile from the city centre
We have an ideal setup for live recording of acoustic or electric bands, with complete separation possible due to our complement of different rooms and booths. There are 2 live areas, a large control room and 2 isolation booths making up over 1200 sq ft of recording space,
All the rooms have direct visual contact with the control room, and each area has its own unique sound - The main live area has a natural but controlled acoustic, which works well for strings, acoustic guitars, and a big drum sound. The second live room has a drier sound, perfect for biting electric guitars, upfront brass and precise percussion. The two booths also have their own characteristic, and together the different rooms make for an extremely flexible and creative space.
The studio boasts a wide selection of high end modern and vintage equipment, from vintage RCA ribbon mics and Hammond organs to state of the art Prism converters and outboard from the likes of Avalon, Neve, Buzz audio. There are personal Hearback monitoring stations for headphone mixes, meaning each musician can control their own independent foldback mix during the recording session.
Whatever recording needs you have we can accommodate you. From a demo to a finished album, from voiceovers to complete soundtracks, just tell us what you need and we will make sure that you get exactly what you want from your studio time. We have recorded and mixed just about every type of music - from punk bands to pipe bands, rap to reggae, with choirs, classical ensembles and folk groups along the way.
