The Yellow Studio


Crisp, Day lit and functional, the Yellow Studio was created for high quality vocal sessions and fast paced production work.


Built around it’s Genelec monitors, the fixed panel acoustic treatment makes for a great sounding room. The studio comes with a pair of world renowned BAE 1073 preamps (built on the original Neve blueprint) and the much sought after Urei 1176 compressor. All the best vintage microphones, from the world-class collection at Sarm are available. Originals from Neumann, AKG, Sennheiser, Shure etc; lovingly maintained and serviced over the years by our experience tech staff. With access to our extensive collection of floating backline, this room works great for almost all occasions.


Nick-named Big Stiff (the Control room) and Little Stiff (the Vocal booth), the Stiff Suite was built with the modern producer and writer in mind.



Sarm Music Village has a central patchbay between all the studios… meaning you have access to all our live rooms and instruments, no matter which room you’re working in. 


Source Connect- the Yellow Studio is also fully kitted out for international Source Connect sessions- ISDN is so ’79.
