Kore Studios is an acclaimed London recording studio located in Acton, West London. Kore Studios was opened in 2003 by producer and mixing engineer, George Apsion. Founded on a modest setup comprised of analogue consoles and a Pro Tools HD rig, the music studio began life as a trusted base to a faithful roster of independent labels. Ten years on, the studio now offer one of the best equipped and highly regarded music studios available for rent in the UK.
In 2010, the achievements at Kore Studios were given international recognition and industry approval by a panel of studio professionals at the Music Producers Guild, who awarded the studio the coveted prize of ‘Best UK Studio’.
Kore Studios is based in a 2,000 sq. ft warehouse space. The principal areas for music recording and audio design are located on the ground floor of Kore. Functioning at once as a live recording space, a music production facility, and a sound design studio, Kore Studios serves a range of purposes across its many studio rooms. A smaller music recording studio – known as Studio B – and a quiet lounge area occupies the upper floor.
To celebrate their 10th anniversary, a brand new 32-channel API 1608 desk was installed. This classic studio mixing desk puts a modern spin on the famous 1604 board that was manufactured in the 1970s. Although there are only a handful of API consoles being used commercially throughout the UK, Kore are lucky enough to be among the few studios who enjoy its inimitable qualities on a daily basis. Renowned for its unique sound engineering capabilities, the API’s high headroom and midrange punch makes it a favourite among many musicians (especially drummers) the world over.
The second and more intimate studio at Kore features a gorgeous Tweed Audio console manufactured in the 1970s.
VDC Trading recently equipped Kore with a range of cable to support their new work in the studio. Supplied by VDC were Van Damme Microphone Cable, Van Damme Instrument Cable, XLR Leads and XLR Looms.
