The foundation of the QMUL Phonetics Laboratory is our new purpose built soundproof recording studio, which, along with providing a fantastic recording environment, is also the quietest place in East London to meditate or have a nap!

The sound studio is a high-specification double-walled booth completed in 2016 by IAC to the highest of standards.

Recording is normally direct to disk using high-quality cardioid condenser microphones to a PC or MAC, both located outside of the booth on the other side of the feed through panel. Marantz recorders are also available for recordings inside the booth.

We’ve also recently acquired a new high end Articulate Instruments ultrasound set with AAA software for articulatory phonetic investigations, in addition to all of our standard phonetic instruments and technology, such as condenser microphones.
