Mwnci Studios (pronounced Monkey) is a purpose built residential recording studio set in stunning woodland grounds in the heart of West Wales. We specialise in live recording and mixing.

New Grand Piano - Grotrian Steinweg Concerto G-192  

Neve 1073's - Recording Studio

Custom built hybrid recording setup featuring x20 AML ez1073 (Neve) preamp EQ’s into x20 ez52F50 diode bridge compressors for unparalleled control and fidelity. The system was hand built in-house.

'Mwnci should be added to the list of great British residential recording studios.  If you can't make a good record here it won't be the studio that's at fault.  Excellent sounding live rooms, great monitoring and great mic preamps.  Location and accommodation are the cherries on the cake.  Highly recommended."

The Crocodile Room - Recording Studio
There are two large live rooms separated by soundproof windows with full line of sight. There is large 'dead' booth and a larger vocal booth and amp room, making a total of 4 degrees of separation. Perfect for live recording.

"Great place to record. The recording room sounds well balanced and has a great air to it. Not too live - not too dead!
Lovin the ATCs in the control room and nice analogue mic pre amps to get everything sounding sweet...
All in all a very rewarding experience. Great countryside to charge up the inspiration batteries."
