Herbert Place Studios has moved to a new state of the art professional recording studio high up in the Cooley Mountains boasting panoramic views over the Irish sea. Situated just off junction 18 on the M1 motorway, Black Mountain Recording Studios is exactly half way between Dublin and Belfast. At the heart of the studio is a beautiful SSL 4032 G+ recording console. Both control room and live rooms have been designed by renowned acoustician Andy Munro, each room flooded with natural daylight from large windows overlooking the sea, and filled with a vast collection of new and vintage musical instruments. Black Mountain has recently partnered with Herbert Place Studios, with the collaboration creating one of the most unique musical spaces available anywhere in Ireland today. Filled with the highest spec analogue and digital recording equipment, and an unparalleled recording environment. It is the perfect place to escape, unwind and create. Welcome to Black Mountain Recording Studios.
