The XC Music Studio The XC Music and Media Studio

The XC Music and Media Studio is a professional creative facility in the centre of Hemel Hempstead. The Studio provides music and media based youth work activities as well as being available for private hire.

The Facility is based around our professional standard recording studio. This is a purpose built space with full acoustic treatment to get the best sound in our two separate live rooms, and the perfect neutral acoustic in the spacious control room.

The Studio is based around a C24 Digital Control surface which is used to operate Pro Tools HD, along with a selection of third party softwares and plug-ins. Our live rooms are fully kitted out with a selection of guitars and amps as well as our house drum kit.

Further to the studio we also have a media suite containing 10 iMacs running various creative softwares such as Reason, Final Cut Pro X, iMovie and Adobe Creative Suite to name a few.
