Abbey Road Institute partners Antelope Audio

Posted on: Thursday 13th of October 2022

Antelope Audio and Abbey Road Institute announced their partnership that educates music production students through intensive, focussed and hands on training combined with access to top-tier equipment. Abbey Road Institute was growing and needed to move into a larger facilities, and Angel Studios was a perfect fit for the school. The studio sadly closed towards the end of 2019 and its future became uncertain. Angel Studios was an iconic London studio with an extensive history of recording since it first opened its doors at the start of the ‘80s. Some of its earliest recordings include Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Fela Kuti and Egypt 80 and Kate Bush. As well as a recording facility for well known artists, Angel became a go-to studio for many film and TV projects over the years, including The Lion King, Moulin Rouge, Never Let me Go, Les Miserables, I, Daniel Blake, Stan and Ollie and many more. The Abbey Road team were keen to preserve the history and personality of the studio whilst also bringing the facilities up to date with the leading technology of today.

As part of the expansion into the new space and continuing to provide students with access to industry standard equipment, Abbey Road Institute has partnered with Antelope Audio, who provided some of their top of the range gear for the Institute’s new facilities at Angel Studios, including their Galaxy audio interfaces in the two recording studios ‘Angel One’ and ‘Angel Two’.

Practical Experience & Cutting Edge Technology
The hands-on and practical education provided by the Institute is broad, ranging from traditional recording techniques such as the use of the Decca tree to top-tier technological advancements, such as Dolby Atmos. Antelope Audio’s Galaxy 32 Synergy Core is integral to the immersive sound facility inside Angel Studios.
With the use of the Galaxy’s Dante network connectivity, the students have the ability to record sound effects and music in various spaces around the building. And with the latest Surround Sound software update, multichannel speaker calibration and Dolby Atmos monitoring are also available at ease.


The most recognisable of the studio’s, Angel One, with it’s beautiful Speechly organ, has a large Neve 88RS console and is paired with Galaxy64 and a Galaxy32 interfaces for up to 96 channels of recording I/O. Both interfaces are synced by a 10MX atomic clock.
The Institute’s dedicated Custom 75 recording space over at Abbey Road Studios is home to longer-serving Antelope Audio gear like the Orion 32 Gen 3 and is used for monitoring and mixing. In addition to this is the Discrete 8 Synergy Core audio interface which is available to students to use for location recording like live gigs and classical music in concert halls. Antelope Audio modeling microphones (such as Edge Solo and Edge Duo) also find their place in numerous facilities in both Abbey Road Institute facilities.


Preparing Students for the Future of Audio
The partnership between Abbey Road Institute and Antelope Audio brings students the best of both worlds: providing real-world recording skills and the experience with top gear to give students the edge they need to advance in the industry.
Abbey Road Institute graduates have gone on to work with artists such as Little Mix, Ed Sheeran, Madonna, Adele, J Hus, Calvin Harris, and Pink, with two alumna working on Grammy nominated albums within the last year. They are building their careers with employers like Abbey Road Studios, Universal Music, Metropolis Studios, Britannia Row, Netflix, Rak, Ninja Tune and Sarm Studios, just to name a few, as well as becoming successful freelancers.
