About

Studio Two was built in 1990 by Tom Hidley. Its design, warm acoustics and equipment have made it one of the most prestigious and sought-after studios in Russia. Mark Almond, Virgil Donati, Damon Eliott, Gintarė Jautakaitė have recorded tracks here.

Almost every famous Russian rock-band has mixed music here, but Studio Two is also well known for the works of such composers as Eduard Artemiev, Alexey Aygi, Ahmad Pejman, Yury Poteyenko. Russian versions of famous musicals, such as Chicago, Beauty and the Beast, Mermaid, Notre-Dame de Paris, Sleeping Beauty, Tanz der Vampire, Zorro were recorded in Studio Two.

Studio Two is best for recording rock, pop and jazz bands. Its sliding door system allows the space to be divided into three acoustically separated areas for rhythm sections and soloists. There is also a fourth room, 125 m3 in size, which allows separating musicians from the band and is perfect for overdubs. Kinoshita loudspeakers, a 48 channel Solid State Logic SL4000G console, Prism Sound converters and an Avid Pro Tools 10HD workstation offer a blend of classic analog and modern digital equipment and allow for recording and mixing music in stereo.
