Far Heath Studios - Northamptonshire recording studio

Far Heath offers all the benefits of a first-class recording studio in an affordable package and we are delighted to feature a video that they produced themselves showing off the studio with house engineer Angus Wallace talking about the studio and producer Mike Bennett enthusing about his favourite studio.

 

We think that this is a superb video and many thanks to Angus and everyone at Far Heath Studios for their excellent work!

 

We have recorded several video features at Far Heath, from studio tours to recording techniques.
