The Blue Room is a great ambient space for rehearsals. With its warm décor and open sound it allows both energy and subtlety, “light and shade” to really shine through. If your ideas range from whisper to roar then this room is ideal !

Another great feature of the Blue room is the staging that allows Quad Studios to recreate stage areas for most small local and national music venues such as “the Charlotte” or “King Tuts”. Not only can you run through a set using foldback but you can also rehearse setting up and taking down.

Prices :

  • PA only £14 per hour
  • PA or foldback monitors with a drum kit shell pack, guitar amps and mics £16 per hour
  • As above but mic’d to provide a quality recording of the rehearsal for demos or analysis £32 per hour.

The great curve is a large ambient space for extremely comfortable rehearsals. Bright , airy and light it is great for the longer sessions offering a relaxing environment geared to creativity. Standard instruments such as drums and guitars work well alongside modern synths and computers as well as mic’d up acoustic instruments such as mandolins, dulcimers and percussion.

The slightly curved walls and stylish reverb treatment add real character to this great sounding room.

The Green room has a recording studio control room feel to it. The moveable curtaining and baffles allow for a huge range of tones and volumes. The ability to handle Sub-bass and low frequencies make this space great for Techno, Dance and seven string “odd” guitar tunings. I never envisaged a space where Drum’n Bass freaks and Death Metalers would co-exist but life is strange and wonderful !

The room’s sonic properties mean it is our main control room for recording, mixing and mastering. The views through to Studio 5, The Theatre room, allow Quad Studios to be at the forefront for recording larger projects including Orchestras. See Recording Studios for further details.

This large space is obviously geared to the bigger project. Jazz Big Bands, Soul review acts, Orchestras, Touring Rock Bands and even Brass ensembles are all easily accommodated.

The key to a successful rehearsal for the larger project, as well as the spacious room, is having enough infrastructure, chairs, mics and stands, an organised but unobtrusive sound/foldback system and a FOH (front of house) that can support parking/unloading & moving equipment as well as catering for larger numbers. Quad Studios is at the forefront of offering a specialised quality service for large projects.

For extended periods of stay please phone to discuss equipment needs and daily, weekly or monthly prices.

The Theatre Room

Studio 6 – The White room, is warm, vibrant, clean and white. It is fabulous for jazz, pop and “unplugged” projects, where the sounds created ideally want to “breathe” and blend with one another.

The room’s fully adjustable acoustic treatment allows the reverb to be controlled from Dead to Cathedral. This obviously allows a high degree of flexibility for not only rehearsals but also recording.

The room breaths life into musical and vocal arrangements and can give a sonorous natural choral feel if required.

  • PA only £14 per hour
  • PA or foldback monitors with a drum kit shell pack, guitar amps and mics £16 per hour
  • As above but mic’d to provide a quality recording of the rehearsal for demos or analysis £32 per hour. Recording medium of choice – cassette, minidisk etc.

Studio 7 – The Midas Room is a large ambient space that has a real recording studio vibe to it with a double “air lock” entrance opening onto a huge space that can be zoned for different acoustical properties. The private nature of this studio makes it ideal for lengthy projects or lockouts (please call for details).

  • PA only £14 per hour
  • PA or foldback monitors with a drum kit shell pack, guitar amps and mics £16 per hour
  • As above but mic’d to provide a quality recording of the rehearsal for demos or analysis £32 per hour.

A neutral sounding room created with drums in mind. The wall mounted reverb baffles, ceiling “clouds” and wooden diffusers really highlight natural sounds. They also make the room look and feel great !

The room is very good for four / five piece bands that want to concentrate on vocal delivery. A set-up using a 500 wt PA and including a bass amp, 2 guitar amps, drums and two or three vocal mics is ideally suited to this space. This standard configuration can be fully customised to suit individual requirements.

Prices

  • PA only £14 per hour
  • PA with backline (a drum kit shell pack, guitar amps and mics) £16 per hour
  • As above but mic’d to provide a quality recording of the rehearsal for demos or analysis £32 per hour. Recording medium of choice – cassette, minidisk etc.
