Recording Studios

The recording studios at Hybrid were designed from the ground up to provide great acoustic sound quality alongside a simple and straightforward workflow. With a diverse combination of analog and digital gear and the same acoustic quality as Universal Music’s mastering facility, creating great sound at Hybrid is as easy as plugging in a microphone. The world-class control room in Studio A is based around a SSL4064G+, the analog mixer that has been used for more platinum-selling albums than all other consoles combined. Alongside a thousand square-foot live room and two separate isolation rooms, the nine hundred square-foot control room in Studio A is large enough to accommodate any size project and entourage.

Live Room
