Music students have access to six professional recording studios, built using specialist room-within-room construction methods and housing recording booths, Yamaha pianos, drum kits from DW and Gretsch and amplification by Ampeg, Fender and Vox. The adjoining control rooms are extensively equipped with hardware audio processors from Bricasti, Neve and Warm Audio and feature the first six new ‘Heritage Edition’ recording consoles in the country, manufactured by Audient. Primary monitoring is provided by ATC and PMC loudspeakers.

Budding photographers can experiment with new techniques in our professional photography studios, which feature lighting equipment, a dark room and the latest cameras and accessories. You can show off your best work to all those who visit New Adelphi in the foyer gallery.
