The Lyons Studio

The Lyons Studio comprises of three audio workstations which can cover any aspect of composing, recording and mastering audio and video. There is also a direct link into the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall, which allows student concerts and performances to be recorded.

The frequency response of the studio has been calibrated to give an even and flat result across the audio spectrum allowing for accurate and detailed editing and mastering of works.

Students are encouraged to experiment with the equipment but will be given guidance and training where necessary.
