The 3,000sq ft recording studio is based in Brighton and has been set up as a creative space geared towards helping musicians achieve their vision.

Given the long and often unsociable hours that are very much part of creating music, the studio has the usual facilities to cover most culinary and chill-out needs.

The main live room comfortably accommodates a live band with all their equipment, while maintaining complete ‘separation’. Obviously this is important technically for the quality of recording. However creatively it really facilitates the exchange of ideas during the writing and composing process. Also performances are often enhanced when musicians are actually able to play together, rather than in isolation.  The room is set up so that live recordings can be done to picture.

The studio is extremely well equipped and is very much ready to go, saving valuable time on the set up and allowing more time to be spent on the recording. It boasts an extensive collection of vintage synths and recording equipment that has been built up over the years and can be used to achieve a really warm analogue sound if required.

I had the great pleasure of having my last movie ‘Lawless’ soundtrack/score baptize Toyrooms studio beginnings. Pablo & co could not have provided more inspired & dedicated team support. To be by the sea just added to the magic. Upon first meeting Pablo, one is struck by his modest unassuming sweet nature. Rare & wonderful traits to work with in fact. And behind lies a vast & deep knowledge backed up by a natural spellbinding talent.
