Studio Spotlight: Amati Electroma, London

Audio Pro International, in association with AllStudios, presents the latest instalment of our Studio Spotlight, whereby we focus on some of the world’s top studio facilities. This week, we take a look at London’s Amati Electroma…

Electroma Studio is a brand new SSL studio, located in East London, just between Hoxton and Shoreditch. It officially opened in January 2012 when it joined sister studio Rock Of London on the Amati Studios roster and is co-owned by mix engineer Paul Bateman and DJ/Producer Graham Newman.

Speaking to AllStudios, Bateman explained: "I approached Graham in September 2011 with the idea of taking on a studio share with a few other engineers. The equipment was great and I wanted an active role in the day to day running, so I decided to buy into the business instead and become an owner. I also wanted to have somewhere as a permanent base rather than to be a client in someone else’s studio.

“At the heart of Electroma is a 24-channel SSL4000 E Series console and ATC SCM50A monitors. Most of the outboard, which includes a Roland Space Echo, Empirical Labs Distressor, Universal Audio LA-610 and Valley People Dyna-mite, has been purchased for its esoteric qualities. Our control room is also well stocked with analogue synths. A Moog Voyager, Roland SH101, Roland TR909 and Prophet 600 all help to make Electroma a high end writing room, without the high end price tag."

As well as the large control room Electroma offers a good sized vocal booth with a live room to be added to the studio very soon.?Sessions at Electroma can be attended or unattended and there is a facility to transfer files securely to the studio, which can then be worked on by Bateman with instruction.

Previous clients include Yoofs, Bibelots, Outfit, Dr Meaker, Gyles Gyesie. For further details please visit
