Welcome to Precentor Studios
Record When and Where you want!
Our philosophy is very simple - flexibility. Record when you want, where you want. We're not keen on the usual recording studio set up, Quite simply, we don't ask for any form of block booking, or limit you to where you record. We originally developed this idea whist running our own studio and record label in London, working with pretigious clients including a number of world famous acts. The clock is ticking and the pressure to deliver actually detracts from the creative process. Add to this the standard block booking approach - an 8hour session in a studio can be very tiresome and detract from the end product. We are totally passionate about getting the best performances possible, and believe our innovative approach leads to a much more creative and enjoyable experience for all involved.
With 2 studios and on location options available, we offer the flexibility to provide a wide range of solutions to fit all tastes and budgets! the first facility is based in the city centre of York, using a 48 channel digital mixing console and running the latest music software, top of the range recording equipment and a vast array of quality plug ins. Our 2nd studio is based just outside the city, suitable for large orchestras, choirs and bands. We also record all over the city and elsewhere so let us know if you have a venue in mind
With a proven track record delivering projects in a wide variety of styles, we have the equipment, experience and passion to deliver fantastic music in a relaxed and productive environment.

"The weekend was just great and all the girls had a fantastic time! The organisation from both yourself and Steve was just perfect! We were really happy with the recording and then to be able to play it and to have that snug area just for us in the bar was amazing. The deal that Steve put together for us was just great! To get one drink, nibbles, private area in the bar, VIP access and most of all the queue jump was just too good to be true!! So a big big thank you to you and Steve for really making our weekend for us. I will definitely recommend you if I hear of any other hen dos wishing to go to York." -Sarah (Hen Do Gift Experience)
