THE 7TH HEAVEN STUDIO
Read all about Jon Dixon’s 7TH HEAVEN studio, based in Oakham, East Midlands.

The equipment is constantly evolving to reflect modern production techniques with extensive investment in audio interfaces and computer horse-power. Based around 2 Apple Mac computers with Universal Audio Apollo and Focusrite interfaces it’s perfect for tracking vocals, guitars and small ensembles.

Monitoring is by Quested with Yamaha speakers as well as an array of ‘grot’ boxes for real world monitoring.
2021 sees the addition of ‘Studio B’, a small live room great for vocals, acoustic guitars and percussion – It’s even Covid safe as it has it’s own entrance from the outside of the main studio building! An ‘Amp Tank’ is next on the list so guitar cabs can be recorded in silence.
