Metropolis Studios in London has opened a new 3D audio recording facility. Its first client is Amazon Music, which has agreed to make the studio its UK base for immersive mixing, already booking in artists including The Amazons, Emma McGrath, Dumbfounded, James Reid and Jules Aurora to use the new set-up.

Designed in partnership with sound company Sonosphere, the new studio is designed to be flexible, so that anyone using it can bring their own mixing console, rather than having to rely on what the studio has available. It is also set up to cater for all surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos.

“After conceiving the idea with Jamie from Sonosphere back in May 2020, it’s taken just over twelve months to execute this project”, says Metropolis Studios’ Brand Director Gavin Newman. “I am immensely proud of the dedication and hard work that’s gone into making this cutting-edge studio a reality”.

“It is an impressive addition to the fast-growing immersive audio community which Metropolis is excited to join and lead the charge on, creating an accessible environment for recording artists and others to experiment with the untapped potential of 3D audio”, he goes on. “The room’s commercial capacity is immense and what better way to launch the studio than with a content partner like Amazon Music”.

Amazon Music UK’s Head Of Music, Patrick Clifton, adds: “At Amazon Music we are committed to working with artists to bring their visions to life, and our partnership with Metropolis on the creation of this new immersive studio is a further demonstration of that commitment. We’re looking forward to working alongside artists and the expert engineers at Metropolis to create brand new 3D audio creations for our listeners”.
