About us

Our philosophy is simple: world-class recordings should be available to all musicians. We have created a studio that can match the demands of any session: rock and pop, rehearsals, large ensembles, film scoring... at a price accessible to anyone.

Located an hour from both London and Bristol, Western Audio has a 720 sq ft live room with 24' ceilings and an acoustic that can be tailored to the individual session - big reverb for huge drums or lush strings, tight and controlled for vocals and overdubs.

The control room has been custom-designed to create a flat and even response and features world-class monitoring, preamps, EQ and conversion.
Contact us to discuss your needs - we look forward to making music together.
