Rockfield Studios

Posted on: Friday 12th August 2016

In October 2015, 12 Music Technology students from Stanwell visited Rockfield Studios in Monmouth for a three-day residential masterclass. The studio, which has hosted and recorded many famous artists in rock and pop over the last 5 decades, boasts a superb range of specialist equipment including vintage technology that is rarely found elsewhere. Working with two of the sound engineers, the students performed, recorded and mixed two tracks over the three days. They also learnt about the history of the studios, heard stories of famous recording sessions from staff, and gained hands-on experience with the technology and equipment available. The catering and accommodation were also superb! The following video features some of the highlights of the trip and includes extracts of the tracks that were recorded by the students.
