Welcome to Astar

Mercury Prize Nominated Producer Andy Ross’s Manchester Recording Studio

Are you looking to record in a top-quality Manchester recording studio? Astar Studios has been helping musicians in the Greater Manchester area since 2008. It is the home of Mercury Prize nominated producer Andy Ross, and has twice ranked among Europe’s top 4 recording studios at the prestigious ProSound Awards.

With Astar Studios, you hire state-of-the-art hi-end recording facilities and a stunning live room. The studio has been custom built to produce recordings of unrivalled quality at an affordable price. Whether you are looking to record a song or voiceover, remix tracks or any form of audio post work, we can offer studio time, a skilled engineer, and bargain off-peak deals.

Naturally, we stock a range of the best instruments so you can get your track to sound the way you always dreamed of. Experienced session musicians are available for hire, giving even the simplest song a rich, multi-layered sound. The studio is large enough for music videos to be filmed on-site.

All this is just a few minutes drive from inspiring countryside views, and we can arrange hotel accommodation for artists who are planning on longer sessions.

While other studios end their work when the master is done, Astar can be with you all the way to the finished CD or vinyl product. Free pre-production and PR support is available on all EP and Album packages.

On this site you can discover the facilities we offer, hear testimonials from industry professionals who have worked with us, and check out our list of satisfied clients, including gospel star Krystina Miles, singer-songwriter Hayley McKay and jazz sensation Tom Seals
