Limefield is a production house established by musicians Steve Brown and John Ellis.

 

Limefield has grown from Manchester’s vibrant music community and has become a familiar & comfortable place for the established and emerging talent in and around the city. As well as a technical facility that has developed to make the recording and engineering process quick, simple and instantly rewarding, we are able to draw on our community when working with artists, whether it is to find a harpist for a session or a film maker to record the creative process (see Rates).


The studio itself has it’s main recording space in the large room you can see above.

With high ceiling and wooden floorboards, it’s well suited to acoustic based music. Another smaller space is a room adjoining the control room in an adjacent building.


There’s a Steinway Grand Piano, Hammond A100 Organ, various electric and acoustic guitars, amplifiers, keyboards, a Rodgers drumkit and various other whistles, percussion, flutes and odd instruments with which you can decorate your music/annoy bandmates & the engineer.


Technically speaking, we’ve got a good selection of microphones, ribbon, condenser and dynamic. In the control room, there’s a good mixture of mic preamps, compressors and other outboard gear.

The studio uses a 16-channel Toft ATB desk.
