Humm is a brand new recording facility located in central Bristol, run by the same team behind The Malthouse Recording Studio.
The space boasts a 45m2 live room with 3.5m high ceilings, a dedicated amp and vocal booth, and a 30m2 acoustically treated control room all designed by Tony James, associate member of the Institute of Acoustics.
We offer the use of our vast array of vintage amplifiers and instruments, alongside our selection of high-end microphones and outboard gear. Humm is an ideal space for creating your bands album, overdubbing some lead vocals, tracking huge drums in the live room or recording broadcast ready voiceovers for picture or podcasts in the fully treated booth.
Hugo is an engineer, drummer and producer. Hugo started The Malthouse Studio with Dom in 2013 before opening Humm Studios in 2020.

We can produce a wide range of drum sounds in our large live room, with the aid of our custom made hanging acoustic ceiling panels. We can make your drums sound massive and roomy or tight and up-close, and anywhere in between.
We also have a vocal booth/dead room for capturing dry, intimate vocal performances or guitar takes.

We enjoy taking projects through from conception and pre production all the way through recording and mixing. We also offer a mixing service for tracks recorded elsewhere.
We can add spice to your home recordings by re-amping a guitar part through one of our vintage amplifiers including WEM, Marshall, Fender, Rivera, Burns, Vox to name a few.
We can also make use of the various outboard and software plug-ins we have on offer. (UAD, Soundtoys, Slate, Melodyne etc…)
