Royal Room

The Royal room is Julian’s mix studio based just outside London in Tring.

The Royal Room boasts the biggest Neve Capricorn desk in the U.K (previously of Steelworks Sheffield).

The console features 152 returns from Logic (over madi), 16 Neve (1073 style) pre amps, plenty of AES and plenty of analogue I/0. This capricorn has been used on records for Bryan Adams, The Spice Girls, Aretha Franklin, Take That, and thousands others.

The room is acoustically neutral and soundproof, and features monitoring from SE Munro (for whom Julian is an endorsee) as well as Genelecs, Ns10’s and Auratones.

A mobile rig is also available for hire, if you want Julian to come to you!
