The studio equipment

We use a whole host of different software and outboard at Urban Radio to produce the best DJ Jingles and radio imaging. Established since 1999, we knows what sounds good.

Voice

In our studio we use a variety of microphones including the Neumann TLM 102, Shure SM7B and Beyer Dynamic MCE 86 & M201 all fed through 3 Yellowtec VIP 1 Microphone processors.

Our main digital audio workstation (DAW), is Mixcraft and we use Avid Pro Tools and a host of VST 3 plug ins.

This is what makes our productions pop out and cut through so well. Delivery is normally 320 MP3 or .wav. Let’s get it POPPIN!

Studio

The monitoring is done on big Tannoy speakers and smaller JBL speakers fed from a Quad 44/405 . We plug in Beyer DT770 PROs so as not to wake up the neighbours!

We also have a fully featured radio studio including Technics SL 1200s and a couple of Pioneer CDJs.

Workstation

In the studio we have 3 main workstations running Pro-Tools/Mixcraft and Adobe software. We use a myriad of plug-ins, our favourite at the moment is Izotope Ozone 9 mastering plug in, this gives us real impact on our productions. We love geeking out above this stuff, but we know it’s so boring!!

Listen to the demos to hear how our productions just POP!
