My Studio, Slate Room Studio is located in the quiet village of Pencaitland, just 20 minutes to the East of Edinburgh. The studio was designed from the ground up to facilitate a modern recording experience with traditional engineering values.
The facility is, at heart, a high end recording and mixing studio with a comfortable, spacious day-lit control room, separate isolation booth and a large Slate-floored live room equipped with a vast collection of modern and vintage microphones, outboard and instruments.
At Slate Room Studio, we believe that the experience is every part as important to the final recording as the equipment and rooms we have, so every effort is made to make sure your time with us is creative, efficient and productive.
