Lana Banana Studios house three tracking rooms in an 'L' shape around our dedicated control room, with a large private studio garden also accessible via both the control room and our large, modern kitchen.
Our outstanding ADR Room is our flagship recording space, sonically designed to capture all things acoustic & natural in the finest detail - All ADR, voiceover & vocal recordings are tracked in this room, along with the likes of acoustic guitars, percussion, drums, brass & strings etc.
For anything 'real', our ADR Room is the ideal choice.
For ADR & voiceover in particular, the ADR Room is fitted with an impressive 12ft motorised ceiling recessed projector screen - Ideal for recording timecoded scripts to picture. Our hush-box enclosed projector is linked to the control room & Pro Tools, but can also be connected up to a client laptop if desired. EdiPrompt is also available for visual cues on-screen during record-to-picture sessions.
Other features of the ADR Room include Pro-Tools sync'd light cue, direct window view between the control room, clothed table & Herman Miller Aeron chair for seated sessions, large portable double-sided acoustic screen, and four comfy theatre seats fitted at one end, formerly of The Lewisham Theatre.
Directly next to the control room is our Piano Room which houses our beautiful 1970's Kemble upright piano, delivering a wonderfully deep, warm, & resonant sound. As well as live piano, this space also caters for the recording of guitar amplifiers and MIDI - Our fully weighted large MIDI piano is always available for client use.
Connecting the Piano Room & ADR Room, is the Jukebox Room, featuring our legendary upright free-play Jukebox. This room is generally only used for amp/cab isolation when tracking live bands, but be sure to have a flick through the Jukebox playlist when passing through!
Use of all studio rooms is included in our hire rate.
