Global Advertising Directory of sound recording studios to record your album or lay down a track.
Traditionally recording studios have been thought of as a soundproofed complex with a live room (where instruments and vocals are performed), a vocal room (for lead vocal singing) and a control room (for recording, editing, mixing and mastering the sounds produced in the live and vocal rooms.) This view of a recording studio reached its heyday in the late 60s when stereo went mainstream. Paul McCartney described Abbey Road, formerly EMI Studios, as “the best studio in the world”, saying that it has “depth and tradition”. The building was first used for music when it was acquired by the Gramophone Company in 1931.The UK music industry continued to grow in 2019, contributing £5.8 billion to the UK economy, sustaining upwards of 197,000 jobs and producing a total export revenue of £2.9 billion in 2019 alone
