Studio 2 – The Harrison Room

Studio 2 – The Harrison Room

The Harrison Room was the first studio on the property, originally built by INXS’ bass player Garry Gary Beers.  The Control room doubles up as The Grove Studio Academy’s unique learning environment and is home to our recently restored classic console, the Harrison 4032.  The adjacent live room is 15m2 and perfect for tight drum kit sounds.

Studio 2 also has two furnished living spaces, one of which doubles as a second live room to accommodate larger group recordings.  With its own private kitchen and veranda overlooking the bushland, Studio 2 is the perfect complement to Studio 1.
