Antfarm Rehearsal Recording Studios

Come...Make Music...Be Beautiful...

About the Antfarm

Set in a rural location, Antfarm studios offer a calm space to rehearse for an upcoming  gig or write and record your next masterpiece. Both studios are detached buildings, so there is no noticable noise coming from your neighbours. Ample free parking space in front of the studios is provided. There is a lakeside Cafe and recreation area open during the day. The studio is just a few minutes drive from jct 26 of the M25. Public transport links are few, 10/15 minutes car/taxi ride from Loughton central line station or Epping station, 15/20 minutes from Waltham Cross overground station.

Antfarm Rehearsal Recording Studios has two different sounding live areas. Recording Studio 'B' has a lively open sound, a room that likes to be driven hard. Recording Studio 'A' has a tight almost compressed sound that drummers love, along with an acoustically damped vocal booth and isolation room.
We have smooth sounding ribbon and condenser mics with great preamps to capture your sound.
There is a choice between digital or analogue desks. All tracking to a DAW running Cubase Pro 9.5


Location Recording


We provide a location recording service  specifically aimed at acoustic music production. The  acoustic space contributes greatly  to the sound produced by acoustic instruments. So, if you have a favourite acoustic space, ie a church, we can decamp to that church and record your music.
