Saltwell Studio is a new purpose-built recording studio run by producer/engineer Chris Pepper, located in the Cambridgeshire village of Leighton Bromswold. Our rooms are acoustically designed, comfortable and have plenty of natural light.
The control room is based around a selection of fantastic sounding mic preamps, outboard gear, world class AD and DA conversion and Logic Pro X, with third party plugins including UAD, Waves and Melodyne. Monitoring is handled by ADAM A7Xs and Yamaha NS-10s.
The large studio with high ceiling will accommodate most recording situations. When tracking, a selection of backline is available (including vintage Ludwig drums, Guitar/Bass amps and a beautiful old Bluthner upright piano). The ‘Hearback’ headphone monitoring system enables each band member to be in control of their own mix.
An ever expanding collection of dynamic, condenser, tube and ribbon microphones, provide plenty of choice when capturing performances.
