The Workshop is the latest recording studio in NSW, a retro inspired space designed to support a band from creative beginning to completion. It is an ideal overdub environment when there is no specific need to utilise a whole recording studio.

Using a hands-on approach Murray Burns and Taryn McGregor have acoustically treated this space using recycled materials throughout, creating a relaxed control room designed to accommodate a whole band as they work through and capture their musical ideas. The studio has a single live room great for tracking any instruments including drums, whilst the control room has ample space to chill out, relax and ‘workshop’ music in a unique environment. Just outside the control room there is a covered area overlooking the hinterland which has a kitchen and dining area. our rustic fireplace compliments the relaxed atmosphere that “The Workshop” has to offer.
