The Studio is £150 per day for dry hire (without an engineer), if you’re a band looking to record either bring your own engineer to the session or we can put you in touch with one of our experienced freelance engineers.

If you’re an engineer or producer yourself then FS is a great place to bring your recording or mixing projects. We provide an incredible sounding space in which to track and mix, whilst giving you full access to a range of software and hardware. The centrepiece of the studio is a DDA DMR12 large format analogue mixing desk. Originally from Air studios in London this desk has been meticulously maintained throughout its life and is regularly serviced and fault checked by our own experienced team.

We run the latest versions of Logic, Pro Tools and Ableton.

You can book the studio daily or by the hour. The hourly rate is £25. You can also hire the Control Room during the weekday evenings for mixing. Please get in touch for details

“Factory have put together a great sounding yet cost effective studio with the perfect balance of classic hardware and modern production facilities”
