Record your rehearsal for a tenner!


DSI is pleased to announce that we have installed a permanent recording setup in rehearsal room one which can record your rehearsal at the click of a button – (well, nearly – full instructions are supplied)

This is a no-obligation service available to any band who book the room, once there, all you have to do is turn it on and play. Then, if you want to take the file, you can do so for a fee of just ten pounds in addition to the room fee. If you don’t want it, you don’t pay.

We use three microphones strategically placed around the room to ensure a clear sound – the feedback so far from our clients has been extremely positive, and we think the results sound great too. Please request the service when booking to avoid disappointment.

Studio Improvements & New Production Space


Some more news about the improvements made to the studio!

Rehearsal Room 1 has now received additional acoustic treatments with the installation of baffles to cover the ceiling void. We plan to do the same in room 2 shortly.

Both rooms now have double doors to keep in the sound. The external windows will also be fixed very soon.

We have improved our storage capacity with a range of additional shelving throughout the premises.

Most excitingly of all, we have turned one of the storage rooms into a plush new production space. Facilities include a solid desk and plush producers chair, Adam A5 active monitor speakers, hdmi monitor, saffire pro 14 soundcard, a mackie desk, internet access and comfortable bench seating for collaborative working. We expect there to be some downtime when the space could be hired by external producers, so if you want to mix your tunes at high volume at all hours and you’re sick of complaints from your neighbours, other half or flatmates, give us a shout! Hire by the hour @£6, or pre-pay for a chunk of time for a heftily discounted rate. Don’t hang about though, we are already getting enquiries and the room calendar is filling up quickly!

New MP3 up! The Drej – “Head Rattle”


1355340333_Drej_sign_pose

This crushing track has just been sent to us by the band who are busy mastering their debut album now. Drums and vocals were tracked at DSI, the rest was produced by the band themselves! All power to the Drej!

I’m having trouble embedding soundcloud into my posts in these fledgling stages, but check out the player in the websites sidebar. There it is!
