The Studio

The studio is comprised of an integrated tracking and mixing space plus a separate isolation booth. The room was acoustically treated by a bearded man named Sven.

Located in Abbotsford, two kilometres east of Melbourne CBD, the studio is a stone’s throw from public transport and great eateries. It shares the same building as The Aviary Recording Studio. The Aviary's main recording room can be hired through Pots and Pans to accommodate projects that require a little more space. This option can be discussed with Joe.
