Welcome to Real World Studios

Set in stunning rural surroundings near the city of Bath in South West England, Real World Studios is a unique residential recording facility where artists, producers and engineers can escape their daily distractions and focus solely on making music.

There are an amazing number of capacitors in an SSL 9000. as our technician @bobleadbeater can attest

Real World Studios has a new In-House Engineer onboard. @bobmackenzie_  joined us last month from @motormuseumstudio where he spent the last five years building a reputation that made us think he’s be a great addition to our team. A few weeks in, Bob’s looking comfortable at the desk and living up to his reputation. Welcome to Real World Bob.

"By November of '87, Phase One was complete. We then started Phase Two, 'The Big Room' and its associated spaces. I remember @tearsforfearsmusic started recording 'Sowing The Seeds Of Love' at the same time. We had to black out all the windows so they couldn't see what was going on, because even if they couldn't hear the piling rig, and they probably could, they certainly wouldn't have been able to work if they could see it. The soil we're on is not that great because of the amount of water around, so we had to underpin the whole building. Every two feet around the walls we had to drive in 40-foot long steel and concrete piles at an angle so they crossed under the wall.” Mike Large COO

“Some people take to it like a duck to water…which is generally just outside” @itspetergabriel on working in The Big Room. 

Unfortunately, we had to make do with a swan today.
