Welcome to Starling Recording Studio...
Located minutes from the Neolithic village of Skara Brae in Orkney's West Mainland is a cosy recording studio with a warm welcome. Starling Recording Studio offers you friendly service and a quality sound, designed to accommodate everyone from soloists to small ensembles. Whether you're a student or an old pro, we'll do our best to meet your needs.
Starling Recording Studio is running Pro Tools 10. We have an eclectic collection of vintage analogue and digital synthesizers, as well as modern keyboard work stations with on-board sample triggering. We offer SoundIron sound libraries, featuring a wide selection of found instruments. A range of percussion instruments is available. There are professional condenser microphones from ADK, Samson and Røde. Please see our equipment list below for more details. Also available (downstairs) is a 1929 Bluthner full-size grand piano.
Sunlight streams into Starling Recording Studio - though not every day!
Fiddle player Fiona Driver, singer Jo Philby and guitarist Griogair Morrison have released CDs recorded at the studio. Other clients have used Starling for voiceover work, spoken word stories and creating a CD gift of songs for a relative - so why not try it yourself?

Included in the price is an audio engineer. Other services available are keyboardist, arranger and producer. We can also do small duplication runs of CDs, and suggest mastering engineers and manufacturers.
At Starling Studio we want you to have an enjoyable recording experience and pride ourselves on providing a calm, relaxed atmosphere to record in.
