Recording and Rehearsal Studios

Recording and Rehearsal Studios

There is no better feeling for a teacher than being proud of a student who has made the brave decision to go into a recording studio for the first time. Recording can all to often be a daunting process for anyone as the change in environment from your relaxed bedroom practice to having to get it right in a professional facility surrounded by other people is a stark contrast.

This step up can be easier on you if you choose the right studio, and finding the right one is arguably even harder than recording itself, so we've taken the time to carefully review three of Norwich's most suitable recording studios to help you achieve the quality you've been dreaming about!


Ashwood Recording Studio

Ashwood Recording Studio is a unique facility hidden within a converted 18th century barnhouse. The studio caters for all genres of music and all instruments using top of the range equipment to help you achieve that professional sound. The stduio prides itself on creating a friendly environment in which customers can feel relaxed and under no pressure. As mentioned at the top of this page, this is a quality which not many recording facilities boast about-  which says a lot about the company itself. They truly believe in helping you and making you feel at home so they are definately worth a visit.

Ashwood Studios Ltd, Unit 6a Craftworkshops, Tolye Road, Three Score, Norwich, NR5 9AA.

Plug Recording & Rehearsal Studios

Plug are a privately owned studio who offer recording and mixing as well as having rehearsal spaces available. All their rooms are fully air conditioned to prevent a stereotypical 'stuffy' cramped recording studio atmosphere - something which Plug definately isn't! Rehearsal rates are decent and sit at between £5-6 per hour. The recording rates are as equally reasonable with recording at £20/hr with sound engineer included. Free parking is available at the facility and there is easy bus access with the studios located just outside of the city centre. 

Plug Recording Studios, 6-9 Kingsway, City Trading Estate, Norwich, NR2 4UE.

The Mill Recording Studio

The Mill is a professional recording centre based in South Norfolk. This means it's easily accessed from Norwich and Ipswich, and the travel would be worth it. Mill Studios have had some of their clients receive Grammy, Mercury and MOBO award nominations as well as having radio coverage nationally on BBC Radio 1.

They work to provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience to their clients to prevent what they call 'red light fever' (Recording anxiety!) and have spacious open-plan layouts to their rooms to make it feel less claustrophobic. This layout is great for bands as they get to record in a rehearsal or gig situation as opposed to the whole experience feeling more like an interrogation. The studio also offers mixing and mastering services to complete the professional recording job! Their website is very informative and they are worth your custom!

The Mill, Mill House, Winfarthing, Diss, Norfolk, IP22 2DZ.
