Welcome to Orchard Studios - situated in the stunning surrounds of the Somerset countryside and a stones throw from the iconic town of Glastonbury. We offer something that little bit different, come have a look...
Founded in 2010 on the site of an existing studio, Orchard has been remodelled over the past six years into a custom built recording space. Consisting of two contrasting live rooms and a bright and airy control room, the studios offer a comfortable and relaxing space from which to orchestrate any musical project.
In the control room you will find a mixture of analogue and digital technology. Projects can be conducted completely 'out of the box', through use of our analogue console, 1" tape machine and numerous outboard compressors, preamps and effects. This is complemented by a huge selection of microphones from Neumann, AKG, Sontronics, Blue Microphones (the list goes on…) 'In the box' productions run through Focusrite REDNET using either Logic Pro or ProTools alongside an impressive collection of plug ins and virtual instruments.
Real instrument wise clients have the use of guitars and basses spanning all manner of vintages. A Yamaha E108 piano lives in the second live room. Amps are aplenty and we have a choice of drum kits and snares - all included in the studio hire price. We also have other instruments available at notice, please enquire for details.
Our work has been featured on national radio and TV stations, including BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and Channel 4. Most recently a live production was released by the Rough Trade label for UNICEF.
