Situated in the relaxing rural surroundings of Moneyglass, Northern Ireland, Manor Park is the main base for Producer/Owner Neal Calderwood but is also used by other engineers and producers. His studio has been meticulously designed and built to meet the exacting need of musicians and producers such as himself whose main objective is to get the best results possible.
With over 2000 square feet fully residential recording studio, a large main live room, 5.5 m x 8m large control room 5m x 8m, vocal booth, 7 live rooms in total most with visual communication through large windows and not to mention a very modern decor, Manor Park is considered to be one of Northern Ireland’s most prestigious recording studios.
First opened in 1998 and now in its purpose built new premises opened October 2005 Manor Park Studio has been designed to allow clients to work in absolute comfort with all the facilities they need to produce excellent results. It creates a stimulating atmosphere for creativity and provides the equipment and environment to capture this.
“A highly developed patching system allows any live room to be linked to any other by speaker, microphone, headphone or guitar lead. This allows the performers to be located in any of the 7 live rooms and be linked to any other room or to the control room. In practice this would mean that a guitarist, for example, could be in the main live room with the drummer while tracking drums but their amp could be in any of the other rooms being totally isolated. Both drum and guitar sounds would not be in any way compromised by sound leakage from one to the other. The guitarist could even have his amplifier head in the room with him and only the speaker isolated in the other room since all rooms have speaker connection also. This could be the case for any other members of the band. In this case monitoring would be done using headphones. Another possible scenario would be the guitarist in the control room with his amplifier head connected to several speaker cabinets located in any of the 7 live areas allowing for the different tonal variation of each room to be captured simultaneously.”
