Studio A



While the decor of Superfly is reminiscent of the 1970s, the technology behind the signal path is state-of-the-art.


We are a hybrid studio, marrying the analogue goodness of Cadac preamps and vintage microphones with the added capabilities of modern digital production. Using Logic Pro/Pro Tools with top of the range Apogee Symphony converters.


At the heart of the studio is a vintage 40 input Cadac J Series console, these desks are very similar in sound to early Neve and API consoles with great sounding Preamps and Eq's. Teamed up with some lovely outboard ranging from Urei. Neve, Empirical Labs, UKB Audio, Purple Audio, Tubetch, AML Audio, DBX, and Api.

The studio is setup with natural light and great visibility into the live room, making communication really easy between artists/producers and band members.

Superfly Studios was founded by Andy Banfield in 2010, previously working in the same studio space from 2004 as the studio manager of Bluewater Studios. 


Superfly ranks alongside the very best recording studios in the Midlands

We are set in the beautiful surroundings of the Nottinghamshire countryside in Ollerton Village, just outside Sherwood Forest.

The studio is a professionally designed acoustic space (Designed by “Studio Architecture” ), and is equipped to the highest standard, housing a collection of classic vintage microphones, preamps and top quality monitoring. Mixing the best of vintage and modern technology to get truly high class results - all

set and ready to capture your creativity.

The vintage gear has been amassed over the last 20 years. Superfly's equipment spec rivals the most famous tracking studios in the UK. Not many rooms can boast over 50 different microphones (AKG, Coles, Royer, Reslo,  Blue, Lomo, Neumann, Sennheiser, RCA and many more)


There are countless drums, bass guitars, guitars and pedals available to be used. If you need keyboards then we have a Hammond C3, a Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer EP200, Moog, Elka and many more.


The live room has been setup so that the second you walk in you can get onto recording. The studio is located on the ground floor with access from the car park straight into the live room so loading in is really easy.

With our reclaimed wooden floors, brick walls and vintage ambient lighting, making the perfect environment to get working. 


There is a Ludwig kit permanently setup and mic'd (or bring your own). As well as a vintage keyboard line-up comprising a Hammond, Upright piano, Wurlitzer, Yamaha CP60 and Rhodes.

The rest of Superfly's backline consists of Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Upright Knight Piano, bongos and congas plus an assortment of other percussive treats. Big range of guitars, bass guitars, amplifiers and pedals, all of which can be recorded by a total of 50 different microphones.
