Studio B at Metropolis is the ideal location for album tracking and production sessions  

Studio B is the second of two tracking rooms at Metropolis. The 35m2 control room features an SSL G series 4064 console with Genelec monitoring. The studio is very self-contained and includes a private lounge and dining/kitchen area, which can be effectively incorporated into the control room environment by opening the two large acoustic doors at the rear. The live area comprises a central live area (30m2) flanked by two isolated areas (20 & 12m2) with more controlled acoustics.The studio is very self-contained and is ideal for album sessions
at any stage from conception to tracking and mix.The dead corridor between control & live rooms has tie lines and is a useful amp/vocal space. Studio B has hosted an array of iconic recordings, including The Stone Roses Second Coming, The Verve’s Urban Hymns, two Rihanna albums and everything will.i.am has recorded in the last decade, to name but a few.
