Recording Studios

Higher Rhythm runs two recording studios in two locations

Running for over 21 years, Higher Rhythm’s studios are amongst the best equipped recording studios in Yorkshire. Our main studio is built around an SSL Origin 32 channel analogue mixing console. Blending the best of analogue with the best of digital, we use Universal Audio Apollo interfaces and an Apple Mac running Pro Tools Ultimate.

Both studios have a wide range of analogue and vintage, valve pres and compressors.  This includes equipment from Neve, SSL, API, Chandler, Tube-Tech, Manley and more… 

The studios also use a combination of Genelec and PMC monitoring, making our comfortable, air-conditioned studios the perfect place to produce outstanding recordings.

See below for our long list of pro equipment.

Recording Studios in Yorkshire

Why record at Higher Rhythm recording studios?

Music artists can achieve outstanding, release-quality recordings using our vast range of high-end equipment spread across two multi-room recording studios in two separate locations.  

Our main studio has a spacious control room, acoustically balanced live room, a separate vocal chamber, amp room,  and recreational spaces. At our second studio, as well as having a spacious control room, we have an acoustically balanced live room and a second large live performance room. To our knowledge this is not only the largest live room amongst Recording Studios in Yorkshire, but the largest live room in the North of England! (Easily big enough for an orchestra)

When you record your own, original music at one of the Higher Rhythm recording studios, we also offer you a FREE worldwide digital release of your music where you keep 100% of the net sales!
