Pop in for an hour, settle in for a day session, record, mix, edit — the space is yours for whatever purpose you need, and available 24/7 to work around your daily routine.
Recording — production (writing)
A writing space for producers equipped with an audio interface, MIDI keyboard, condenser microphone, headphones, monitors and extras.

How's the craic?
Some people think culture and creativity are dying out. We disagree. Music in Dublin holds more value than ever and we love fresh new ideas and initiatives to create more culture. We pay respect to the old guard, like the Dubliners and My Bloody Valentine, while celebrating the new names on our lips, like Or:La, AEMAK, and Alex Gough.
As you know, there are two things that make the heart of Dublin tick — that's food and music. Preferably, the two of them combined. We're pretty fond of these Dublin haunts:
- Monitors - Monitors: 2x KRK V6 or Yamaha HS8 or Focal Alpha 80
- Microphone - SE Electronics SE2200II Condensor or SE Electronics SE 2300
- Interface - Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 / Clarett 4pre / 2 pre
- Keyboard/Midi Controller - Novation Impulse 61 or NI Komplete Kontrol A61
- Headphones - Pioneer HRM or Pioneer HDJ-X5 or KRK 6400
- Other - External Screen, Keyboard & Mouse, Mic Stand, Keyboard Stand, XLR-XLR
The studio address is Unit 69, Moyle Road, Dublin, Dublin 12.
Driving? We have five car parking spaces at the front of the building, first come, first served.
If you're coming by public transport, the nearest station is Broombridge, and buses stop nearby on Slaney Road.
