Scotland's Studio is a brand new, state-of-the-art recording facility purpose built for the world-renowned Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland’s UNESCO City of Music, the studio builds on existing infrastructure like the RSNO Centre which opened in 2015, and features not only cutting-edge mixing technology, but the RSNO's New Auditorium: an acoustically adjustable and flexible space, ideal for the specialised production of recordings for film and television soundtracks as well as hosting educational projects.
This unique integration of the latest production technology with the highest quality musicians in an acoustically excellent space, positions the studio as a "one stop shop" able to provide full end-to-end production for industry.
A key ambition of the Studio is that it will become the go-to studio for film and game industry soundtrack recording outside of London, the RSNO being the only orchestra in the UK with a fully functioning recording facility that can record sound to picture. The studio will also be open to other Scottish based orchestras and musicians, giving them access to not only a world-class recording studio, but also allowing them to advance within the creative industries.
Scotland is increasingly becoming a popular destination for film, TV and video game productions and Scotland’s Studio is in a prime position to contribute to this development. The RSNO has an established track record and strong brand recognition for its recording work, especially in film and video games, with the orchestra credited on re-recordings of classic scores such as Vertigo and being conducted by film score icons such as Jerry Goldsmith. The studio will allow the RSNO to embark on bigger and more challenging projects within these industries and this new income stream will prove invaluable in supporting the RSNO's charitable mission, as ventures such as touring and larger scale performances continue to be affected by the ongoing pandemic.
