The Hideaway Studio

The Recording Studio

The Hideaway is a residential recording studio created by Imogen Heap in 2006. The cosy heart of the studio runs a Pro-Tools HDX rig, a Rupert Neve 5088 desk and is located in the basement of the house but with the unusual benefit of natural light.

Stage boxes are fitted in other rooms so recordings can benefit from the unique acoustics offered by an elliptical building with direct lines to the control room. Hearback is available in all rooms.
