Intimate Recording Studios

Paul Madden, owner of Intimate recording studios London behind the Neve VR console

We are delighted to feature long established Intimate music recording studios in the heart of London. Intimate studios recently installed a Neve VR console. A video feature will be here soon....


Feet have not touched the ground at London’s Intimate studios since the installation of the Neve VSP72 with Flying Faders (ex studio 1 Whitfeild Street) at the start of 2006. Producer Gwyn Mathias and his team downed tools as the old mixing desk was removed then as soon as the new desk was installed and has been a regular visitor since. Notably record producer Joby Talbot and his engineer Mark Wylie arrived to complete Aluminium (LP collaboration with The Whiite Stripes) just after the new desk was installed.

More recently the Intimate Studios team have been working with a 30 piece orchestral session."The sessions were full on to say the least,starting with 15;strings;followed by sessions adding the brass; woodwind, harp and then days of percussion and mixing. Out walks Joby and the White Stripes in walks Robin Millar mixing the Keisha White album for Warners and so onwards" says owner Paul Madden.

"The studio has really been non stop ever since we upgraded the console, but we believe that we are starting to get on top of our objective of a truly multi functional recording environment which this years client list attests to" says owner engineer Paul Madden. “Over the Christmas period I alone have been working on a wide variety of projects 'Zorro', a new West End musical with John Cameron & The Gypsy Kings, an album of new material with Robin Trower & Jack Bruce straight to 2" 24 track analog and an eleven piece dance band for ballroom scenes in the new BBC drama "Daphne" due for airing in May 2007. In between Joby Talbot has been scoring "Son of Rambo" just in time for its premier at Robert Redfords Sundance film festival where it has played to rave reviews".
