Recording Studio

repmusic introduced a boutique recording studio to its offerings in 2015.

The studio is designed specifically with singers and pianists in mind and includes a 1970s Yamaha U3 piano, vintage 1980s Rhodes electric piano, Nord Piano4 and Electro 5D keyboards.

Our mic locker includes Neumann (U87, U67, 47fet), Schoeps, Coles (4038), Pearlman (TM47), AEA (R84), Extinct Audio (BM9s), Electro-Voice (RE20s), Calrec (1050s), Reslo, Sontronics (Aria, STC1-S), Beyer, Shure, and AKG microphones. We also have the best in studio pre amps to make the most of our extensive mic collection, including Neve, API, UA, and DAV studio pre amps.

Set in the relaxed surroundings of a Cambridgeshire village, the studio offers a calm and inviting environment for recording sessions.

Sessions are engineered by professional session singer and pianist Robin Phillips, and can include live accompaniment, or programmed or purchased backing tracks.

Studio sessions can be videoed using our Sony ZV1 and up to five GoPro cameras, with multicam recording session videos edited and sync’d with the studio audio for promotional purposes.

The repmusic studio is becoming known as a specialist studio that can capture instruments in the most authentic way, with minimal room sound, and has been used for recording instruments used as samples in professional audio settings.

The studio is particularly suited to:

  • Singer / songwriters
  • Singers
  • Singer / pianists
  • Instrumentalists especially brass, strings, and guitar
  • Demo recordings
  • Album projects


Here’re some recordings done in the studio, all video edits done in house by repmusic.

In 2023, we were delighted to be involved in Sound On Sound magazine’s celebration video of the classic AKG 414 microphone, with Robin providing lead vocals as well as playing piano. This video was filmed at another studio.


We’re also being used more and more for location recording, bringing our equipment wherever it is needed to capture an authentic recording, redardless of the challenges of the room or situation. Here are some examples:

We turned a lounge into a video shoot location for this promotional video. Capturing the best sound we could with each instrument whilst minimising spill wherever possible, using the nulls of different types of microphones.
