Outland Studios is still offering one of the cheapest recording, mixing and mastering services in a studio which has been built from the ground up as a recording facility, with acoustics and recording in mind from its architectural design, to its in-house professional recording equipment.
It's always been a main goal to offer people excellent quality at highly reasonable prices, and I believe that now your money goes further than ever with Outland Studios. Despite improvements making it perhaps twice the studio it was when it opened - I am still retaining the low-rates offer to keep this momentum up and in turn keeping the studio doors open for all who wish to use it.
Furthermore, unlike many studios, I like to dedicate 100% of the time the client is booked into the studio for recording/tracking - giving you more time with less pressure. Following a bands time in the studio, I like to spend at the very least a full day mixing and mastering their work myself, free of charge. The mixed and mastered tracks are then emailed to clients who are then free to request as many amendments or adjustments as they'd like before the master disc is pressed. This assures the process has not been rushed, and everyone is happy with the end result on every playback device. Everyone's work in the studio is backed up and stored to studio hard drives for at least 1 year.
I thank you all for your support since opening, its been highly appreciated - I hope the new and improved Outland Studios continues to bring more artists and musicians through the doors throughout the year. I feel that now our low rates bring you better quality recordings than ever.
Have a look, have a listen, and get in touch.

All rooms have had stringent acoustic treatment and testing to ensure optimum conditions for recording. These include carefully selected and positioned acoustic tiles and bass traps of varying densities and dimensions. Each room has a carefully worked out patching system comprised of top quality shielded cabling and breakboxes with Neutrik connections on all ends. This allows multiple headphone mixes to be ran to each room. It also allows guitar amps to be patched directly to speaker cabs in any room allowing full user control and versatility while recording. The studio layout has been meticulously planned so that visual communication is also possible between all rooms.
When not recording there are full kitchen and W/C facilities as well as a lounge area which includes free WiFi, XBOX 360, Freeview and Widescreen TV.

An example of some music videos for recordings done here at Outland Studios. Some of which where also video recorded by myself here at Outland Studios too.
This is a number of the some newer audio examples coming out of the studio. I would like to state that although these are newer sounds, there has been yet more updates to the studio even since these were recorded too - so in a future post I'll give examples of those to show just how good current recordings can be now.
With the major updates in audio software and hardware, the studio has gained an increasing amount of work for remixing and mastering. More so than ever, there is the capability to drastically improve upon your pre-recorded sounds and tracks. Here is an A/B comparison of some of the work that was sent to us, before mixing and/or mastering and after.
