Graham House Studios has recently moved the location to Ravenhill Road, and this has led to an increase in their ability to pack in more high-end gear and make bands as comfortable as possible with more space to breathe. Rates are reasonable at a £140 per day, or £20 per hour, including an engineer, crucial to getting that professional sheen on your recordings. Guitars include a Gibson Les Paul and an American Fender Telecaster, powered by Fender and Marshall amps, as well as a wide range of effects and microphones. Ample monitor speakers and good mixing equipment make this studio a great choice for the band looking to finally record their music. Pictures of the old premises are on the website so that you can assess the level of equipment to get a feel for how it might work for you. A regular blog is also available on the website, featuring news updates and sound samples so that you can regularly read what's going on while listening to examples of what the studio can produce.

Sonic Visuals Recording Studio is another studio set in picturesque Northern Ireland, and boasts an extensive range of equipment, including vintage microphones, giving you that warm and classic '60s sounds. The other gear on offer appears to be endless, with more microphones, drums and percussion than you could ever need. The great analogue equipment is fed into some high-tech digital tools in order to marry the vintage sound with modern techniques. If this sounds like your thing, a half day's recording is £180 while a single song mix will set you back from £150. This appears to be on the expensive side, so this may be a choice of studio to go for when you are sure you have the perfect songs, and you have a bit of cash ready to spend on getting that CD really perfect. Sonic Visuals also offer a unique eMix service, in which you upload a song to be mixed and then the finished product is returned to you. This seems like a great time-saver, however, if you are serious about the sort of sound you want, it is perhaps better to talk in person and get a more bespoke mix done. Contact Sonic Visuals to have a more detailed chat about what you want from your recordings or mixes, or head to 34 Loughloughan Road, Broughshane, BT43 7HZ.
