Studio 1 – SSL Room

STUDIO 1 – THE SSL ROOM

Studio 1 is built around our renowned 56-channel SSL G series console.  This famous console has been the centrepiece of many amazing records throughout history.  Studio 1 also features a collection of the world’s most sought after analogue recording equipment, with the choice of recording digitally or to our Studer A827 24 track tape machine.  With the recent addition of a Yamaha C5 Grand Piano, Studio 1 is more than equipped with everything you need to get the highest quality, professional productions!

The studio is attached to accommodation allowing for 24-hour access.  This accommodation is equipped with a large kitchen, living area, BBQ and pool and spa access. 52 square metres of timber parquetry flooring, abundant natural sunlight and the choice of four interconnected live rooms make Studio 1 a truly imaginative space to create music in.  Being surrounded by pristine Australian forest outside with a vintage, homely feel inside, it’s no wonder The Grove is one of Australia’s leading creative hubs!

The Grove Studios has played home to albums by many of Australia’s leading acts including; Silverchair, Courtney Barnett, Ocean Alley, The Presets, The DMA’s, Eskimo Joe, Birds of Tokyo, DZ Deathrays, Alison Wonderland, Kasey Chambers, Oh Mercy, Sarah Blasko, Julia Jacklin and Skegss to name but a few.
