Greek Street Studios' James Benn takes us behind the scenes as the sound house switches sides in Soho
Greetings! Our new sound studios on Flaxman Court (just off Wardour Street) are coming along nicely! We are now in the very heart of Soho which makes it super easy to pop in for anything from a quick one hour VO to full days of sound design and mixing.
The guys from Miloco Services
have started to install our two new studios and two writing/editing rooms for even quicker and more efficient transfers. Both studios will be fully Avid equipped running the latest version of Pro Tools, both with independent VO booths.
Here are a few pictures of when the building work first started… WATCH THIS SPACE!
