The Production Room student award

Audio equipment specialists support student development

The Production Room is a Leeds based music shop providing individuals, businesses and education institutions across Europe with a huge range of pianos, synths and pro audio equipment. Pick a brand, and they’ll probably stock it!

Their specialist areas include home pianos, synthesisers, keyboard touring systems, all aspects of recording studio equipment, microphones, studio outboard and active studio monitors.
Their team is made up of the most experienced commercial audio specialists in the north of England with many years working in all aspects of product design, operation and supply. Because of this, our Production Pathway leader, Craig Golding, has forged a strong relationship with Production Room, resulting in them helping us stage a music production showcase in the venue which involved major distributors and manufacturers. They will also be assisting in the near future with the development of new facilities at the college which is fantastic!
Like us they have a strong national reputation and are entirely Leeds based, and as a result of these shared ideals, we’ve secured a student award. Phil Watts, a 3rd year Production degree student has been lucky enough to win this year’s award, and bag himself a top quality studio condenser mic to assist in his electronic music projects. In his solo material Phil uses Ableton Live to capture audio from his accordion, heavily processes it to create synthetic sounds and then loops them – a project which has evolved from work on his degree modules.
Paul Germain and Richard Powell, the Production Room directors, joined Craig and Phil in our studio, with David Warren Director of Operational Services to hand over the precious goods!
