About The Studio

Welcome to Reel, North Yorkshire's premier recording & production studio.

About Reel

Just minutes from the centre of the picturesque city of York, lies this purpose built, spacious, comfortable and fantastic sounding recording studio.

Generously equipped with the latest in digital recording technology and classic analogue gear, twinned with a selection of the most technically and creatively capable engineers the industry has to offer.

Pass the hours in our spacious, and comfortable control room, carefully designed to give even sound wherever you are, so feel free to sink into the sofa knowing you’re hearing exactly what you need to.

At 10x10x6m,  live room 1 offers the space needed for full band performances and is also the perfect place to create those huge drum sounds, whilst still retaining a tight, focussed character. Live room 2 comes in at 5x4m. The 4m high ceiling with carefully designed and “zoned” acoustic treatment, gives this room multiple sonic options.

Our comfortable, and spacious chill out area, bathroom, and kitchen, plus large parking area make Reel more then capable of taking on any project.

We also offer a full PA, lighting, LED screen systems in Live Room 1 for streamed live performances and/or pre-production.
