Setting up a high quality recording studio is a significant investment. Many customers in need of a place to record are choosing to rent or lease a top quality location for the specific sound capture project. This is a more economical approach to preparing audio files.

A space where recording can be completed, such as a music studio, also is able to offer sound mixing and manipulation of the sounds. The professionals who have the knowledge to design top sound capture and monitoring locations are known as acousticians. These pros create spaces which have the best properties for capture of acoustics. The acoustic authorities ensure that the highest level of sound properties is designed and implemented. The design takes advantage of modern materials to provide sound diffusion, isolation and acoustic precision. Elimination of reflected sound is a factor in quality recordings.

A recording studio London locale is often retained to record advertising messages such as voice-overs, musicians, both vocal and instrumental and dialogue replacement for animated presentations. Background music is recorded to tie to television and movie productions. A constant evolution of the equipment used to capture audio performance is noted, ensuring improved accuracy and clarity.

Some studios also feature isolation booths in order to accommodate louder instruments such as electric guitars or drums. These booths prevent sounds from the more intense instruments from interfering with sounds coming from other instruments. Alternatively, the isolation booths provide rooms in which recording of vocals or some acoustic instruments.

Factors of the live room itself are critical to the quality of the final results. Microphones capture the sound, but it is also important that the reverberations from the sounds do not "bounce back" from the walls, ceiling or floor of the music studio London room. Acoustics designers ensure that surfaces in the room absorb and diffuse sounds fully. The dimensions of the room are also a factor in the way the captured sounds are recorded. When there are outside sounds at a studio, these must be eliminated as far as possible.

In addition to the surfaces of the live room, attention must be paid to the type and quality of the equipment used for recording. Equipment which is nearly always found in studios includes the mixing console and microphones and the recording equipment itself.
