Recording studio facility is designed and built by Recording Architecture of London. RainMaker’s 5500 sq. feet consists of six independently floated soundproof pods, including three control rooms, two studios, and one music programme room. The shapes of the rooms and whole facility layout was based on acoustic design, ergonomic considerations, technical equipment requirements and sound isolation principles.

Roger D’Arcy and Recording Architecture of London/RA has virtually unrivaled experience in the design of a range of studio types. These include orchestral, residential, mixing, mastering, post production, film dubbing, video editing and rehearsal studios, government bodies, educational institutions and community groups in the UK and over 40 countries worldwide.

RainMaker’s studios and control rooms were designed to support and enhance the use of high-definition ProTools recording systems. The industry standard for commercial recording, ProTools has been RainMaker’s primary recording platform since 1997. Each system is matched with ATC SCM and Genelec audio monitors. We routinely test and optimize each studio and control room to maintain proper system alignment and ensure superior performance. There is no better combination of systems available: top of the line speakers, acoustically perfect rooms and high def recording systems.
