Real World Studios, Box, near Bath, UK, with new SSL K Series mixing console


Completely unique in style and character, Real World is a collection of stunning studios.  Without any doubt, the main studio, 'The Big Room', is not big - they call it big - we disagree: It's GIGANTIC.  Herds of wildebeest could charge through and the chances are you'd not be flattened.  The above panoramic view of the control room gives only a hint of the dimension.  Awesome


The Big Room features a huge K Series SSL console and the range of outboard is second to none.  Although the control room could accommodate a Boeing 747, it sounds great and is a superb space to work, be it recording or mixing!

What makes the studio such a success though is the range of recording areas.  The 'Wooden Room' is simply knee tremblingly brilliant!  If you can't get a good sound in there, well, there's an alternative career in sales or marketing to look at!


If you're still searching for something different, there's the 'Stone Room' to try.  Not many studios can match this room and the artist will be captivated by the river actually running under their feet which can be seen through a glass floor.

For the mix projects, a smaller SSL 'Work Room' is perfect with it's newly rebuilt control room that features the latest SSL AWS 900+ console that also controls Pro Tools.

Stone cottages with a village feel are perfect to set up home in.  Rest areas tucked away in nook and crannies provide space.  The dining facilities are superb. The grounds also offer lots of space and air.

Again, their standards of accommodation, food, atmosphere and comfort are what define a top residential studio.  Run by very competent staff with huge knowledge and understanding of the artists requirements guarantee perfect sessions.

Studio Manager, Owen Leach, and Studio Director, Mike Large, have created a studio that must rank high on the worlds top studio charts.  The studios must be seen to be believed and must be visited! Watch the vintage pre-broadband video tour - a new one is coming soon.
