We can help make you forward-thinking audio content, ranging from simply providing a chair and a mic, to a bells and whistles fully edited, mixed, and uploaded podcast with original music.
If it is your first episode or your ninetieth, we can help you with anything you need.
Support the creation of podcasts in Scotland - promote creativity
Accessibility - create a safe haven for audio work, aware of neurodivergence and background.
Work with the Edinburgh Fringe - empower Fringe performers with audio content.
Focus on young people - provide opportunities to young people
Local community - work in Edinburgh with other great businesses.
Internet - utilise the power of the internet to disseminate content.
If you are interested in making songs, please do also get in touch.
We are aware that everyone is seeking something different with their podcasts or vocals, so please get in touch and we can discuss! If it can be beamed into your ears, we're here to make it happen.
What is the fountain studio?
Our central Edinburgh studio measures in at 3.77m x 3.79m, making it the perfect size for intimate interviews, roundtable discussions, or solo recordings. We've made sure to give the space some much-needed acoustic treatment to keep your audio crisp and clear. Tech-wise, we use the industry-standard SM7B microphone, running into Ableton, using iZotope mixing and mastering plugins.
We've embraced the gothic history of Candlemaker Row and created a space that's equal parts spooky and quirky. It's the perfect backdrop for all your audio adventures, whether you're delving into true crime, dissecting the latest pop culture phenomenon, or just chatting away.
Where is the fountain studio?
It is difficult to get more central than underneath the looming spires of the Old Town of Edinburgh. Perched above Bad Boy Barbers at 43 Candlemaker Row, get a trim and an episode in one trip.
With shops, food and anything you can need on your doorstep, you can nip out to give Greyfriar's Bobby's nose a rub for good luck before recording and be back in five minutes.
