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 was a tantalising taste of spring at the studio this morning.

It’s behind you. The Big Room at Real World Studios.

Neil Grant* nailed his flag to the sound diffusion mast in the early eighties and his diffusers are a feature of Real World's rooms. The most obvious examples are the large, suspended boxes and the huge rear wall diffuser of the Big Room.

The quiet outside is not indicative of what’s happening  in the studio.

“We created a giant control room in 'The Big Room', with potential for little stages around it, so that musicians were an integral part of the team at all times…I strongly feel you gain more than you lose by mixing people up like that.” @itspetergabriel

"The Writing Room came about when Peter started 'Us’. It didn't actually work for that record, but it started to come into its own during the Recording Weeks….We borrowed a console from SSL and we realised that, if you put a multi-track and a desk in there, it's a great sounding room.” Mike Large, Real World C.O.O.
