Studio

Rob works primarily from his beautiful, high ceilinged studio in central Dublin. There is minimal acoustic treatment, and no glass between producer and artist which is just the way Rob likes it. Working in this way makes communication far more natural and lends a more relaxed atmosphere to sessions, leading to better records.

Rob’s studio is home to a mountain of interesting instruments, vintage microphones and audio gear. From his Bösendorfer mini-grand piano to an Oberheim drum machine, a modular synthesiser or a vintage tape delay, all the bases are covered.
