Welcome to Audio Schemes Ltd
The UK’s premier Home Recording Studio Design and Build Specialists
Audio schemes ltd have been building home studios for over 25 years, offering professional spaces for industry professionals/entry level musicians or home owners who want to work in a real recording studio environment. Our home studios are as close to sonic perfection as possible with extremely high levels of sound isolation to make sure you’re not disturbed or as importantly you don’t disturb your neighbours!
With the advent of remote workflows, the burgeoning home studio market has never been more appealing and a market that is keeping us very busy.
We can build your new home studio in your garden, garage, basement or loft, with unlimited usage 24/7, rent free with no travel or dry hire costs. We can build your home studio with toilets and kitchens to make them fully self-contained, there are no limits to what can be achieved.
The soundproofing is tailored to your needs so if your studio is for mixing you won’t need the levels of isolation, we offer for band practice studios.
If it’s a garden studio you’re interested in, our garden studio builds are a “room in a room” construction which means heavy rain or hail stone won’t have any impact on your Schedule.
We will guide you regarding the levels of isolation you’re going to need to keep what you’re working on private and as importantly keep external noise out, so your mixes are perfect first time.
Contact us to discuss your project.
Site visits in the UK are free with expenses charged anywhere else in Europe.
Thanks again for visiting us and we hope to see you soon.
Nick and the team!

Studio in an Unusual Space
“Audio Schemes recently built my new studio. I heard about them from a friend who had them design a set of studios for a difficult space in London and he was blown away with their work. Having experienced a bad room, which I’d tried everything and everybody to remedy (Including some of the most established studio builders in the country) I know the importance a good room has on your output. If you can’t hear what you’re doing it’s not only impossible, with all the tools in the world, to get a good mix. More importantly it stifles your creativity and makes working with audio frustrating and unenjoyable. The room the guys built sounds FANTASTIC, and Most incredibly being in a former garage much to my surprise I couldn’t hear a pin drop outside or above even with the crazy bass and volume that i work with. The boys were an absolute pleasure to have around and I genuinely miss them being here. Thank you so much Nick, Jordan, Dan and Danny for everything .. I’m sure your hard work will reap benefits for years to come.”
Stephen Root Vice president, development creative services
“The attention to detail on our studio build was amazing”. “Nick Langley’s acoustic knowledge has been formed from building such a wide variety of studies over so many years”. “He explains everything in real life terms for what you are going to be built without being bamboozled by science”. “It’s what the multi functional control room sounds like that’s the most important, and what Nick and his specialist team built has come from years of experience of what works the best”.

Independent Acoustic testing
Out of all the company’s you will have no doubt contacted, how many have independent acoustic test data on the levels of isolation they can actually guarantee? We have a full test report on our garden demonstration studio showing the extremely high levels of sound attenuation we offer if needed. The report is based on a “room in a room“ construction with wall depths of only 300mm!
Click the link below to read the report which makes for interesting reading for those who want to see what really can be achieved.
All our studios are lined internally with acoustic stretch fabric wall linings coming in over 25 different colours. We don’t build garden offices ,we build garden studios which are worlds apart.
