Analogue recording studio with professional mastering in Ratho, EdinburghOur services
Here are some testimonials from artists who have done work here at the studio, with links to their profiles etc
"It sounded so huge, I thought I was under attack!" was the
initial feedback from Black Cat Theory after mastering
their 'Primal Hyms' album. They subsequently uploaded a Facebook review
with "I've known studios to ask 3 times this much for a flatter,
duller output. Super-loud, super crisp, super aggressive result.

"As a professional drummer I have been in numerous studios throughout the UK and Anvil Recording Studio in Edinburgh
is hands down my favourite. In my time there I don't actually remember ever needing to do a sound check,
I just sat down at the kit and played and everything sounded perfect, BOOM, take done! I have never had that, anywhere!
With a fantastic house kit all recorded using the warmth of analogue
you have all the ingredients to capture a great recording in a nice comfortable environment and all polished off with the studio engineer's great
mastering skills. Highly recommended!"

"My band at the time - A Few Good Men - were in need of recording a high quality demo in order to
approach agencies with an example of our 'sound'. We booked Anvil Studios in late November 2014 -
a major attraction in using the studio was the ability to record to analogue tape and to capture actual live performances
as opposed to multi-tracking parts (although this is possible if required). Terry the owner let us hear a quick mix through the main studio speakers and we were all immediately impressed and excited by the excellent sound.
I remember thinking "I didn't think we were that good!". The whole band agreed the songs sounded fantastic and good to go - if you want to
record your music in a stress free, fun and highly professional environment, I can't recommend Anvil Studios

"Terry brings a wealth of skill and knowledge to the studio. Preserved the emotion of the recording and brought a warmth and clarity to the track that was beyond what I expected.
He is great to bounce ideas off and understood exactly what I was aiming for. He has great insight into the end result (ie CD/MP3 track) and what is required at each step of recording to maintain the original high sound quality.
Well worth checking out"
