One Bit Productions offers arguably one of the most unique recording environments within the UK; with its characterful 400sqft live room boasting an Irmler grand piano alongside a variety of guitar amplifiers and comprehensive mic collection. At the heart of the studio is a Pro Tools HDX system with Lynx Aurora conversion running alongside 22 channels of pre-amplification and a selection of outboard gear which includes a Studer A812 tape machine.

OBP is a private studio home to the British production duo Jonty Howard and Joe Murphy. Ever since graduating from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in the same year they have been producing, recording and writing together for both artists as well as companies such as Turn First Artists and Pitch & Sync.
