Welcome to Attic Attack Recording Studio

As many of you will be aware, Attic Attack has had to leave Portland Square after 18 happy and fruitful years. I am now in the process of finding new premises and will post updates here. In the meantime, the range of services will be limited but please feel free to get in touch and I’ll help as best I can.

Recording at Attic Attack

Attic Attack Studio uses a Macintosh Pro 8 core computer running Logic Pro for multi-track digital recording. Alternatively, we can use a Mackie 24 track hard disc recorder in house or on location.

Mixing can be done internally in Logic Pro with its own range of plug-in effects and the Focusrite Liquid Mix EQ and Dynamics, and through the Yamaha O2R digital mixer, with four built in multi effects units (including the TC Unity board) plus dynamics processing and four-band parametric equalisation on all of its 40 channels.

Mixing in Logic Pro and on the Yamaha O2R can also be fully automated.

MIDI sequencing is catered for with Logic Pro running on the Mac Pro and integrated to run alongside the audio system. MIDI and audio tracks can be freely edited together.

Keyboard players can use the Korg Trinity V3 Pro X, featuring Korg’s Z1 physical modelling synthesis and an 88 note weighted keyboard. The MIDI system connects to a range of modules and samplers from the leading makers. A range of sampled instruments includes top quality grand pianos, orchestral sounds, choirs, percussion and world music instruments.

Multi effects and reverbs come from Logic Pro, Sony and Ensoniq units as well as effects from the Yamaha O2R (TC and Yamaha).

For live recording, we have a range of quality microphones through Mackie and TL Audio pre-amps.

We also undertake location recording and can travel to record you at a concert or a place you feel comfortable working in. Perhaps you would like to use your favourite piano or record a larger ensemble in a room with suitable acoustics.


Attic Attack Studio is currently relocating and hopes to bring news of a new address soon.

The studio rate is only £20 per/hour (weekdays) /£25 per hour (evenings/weekends) including engineer and VAT. Please contact us to discuss discount rates on extended bookings and keep an eye on our Special Offers page.
