Recording there was a fun, relaxed, creative environment and we were able to be at our best there. Just generally pleased we decided to use Sound Sound really :D”
— Lepus Timidus, Tryptamines (Fit Like Records, worldwide Independent Music Award winner)

“Edgar Road had a great day working with Hamish. Spot on with his structure suggestions and also with the mix he did for us. Very patient with us and will definitely use them again.”
— Mark Conti, Edgar Road
“Amazing studio. The vibe is right and Hamish is an incredible engineer with the correct personality for working with musicians. I strongly recommend this place for anyone that wants the winning formula.”
— Stevie Creed
“I’ve worked with engineers who were clearly just going through the motions for my hard earned cash. Not Hamish - he works with you, not for you, pushing you that little bit more to get the best out of you; there is a huge difference and the result is the lush sounds he helped us create. It’s a pleasure, not a chore when working with him. “
— Steven Healy, Firewall
“Recording at Sound Sound with Hamish was the first time I'd experienced recording live, in a professional setting and it was a complete joy. The space feels you are escaping reality and entering a new dimension... which was exactly what we were looking for. Hamish's attention to detail and relaxed attitude was the perfect energetic combination to make us feel at ease and like the essence of our sound was really being heard. I will definitely be returning again in the future. Legend. “
— Alana Stirrat, Triptych & Flo
“Relaxed, High Quality, Affordable
When i first went to Sound Sound to record with Hamish i hadn't been rapping that long, not only did he produce a high quality finished product, he really helped me be a better artist with his advice and input during our recording sessions. This is why i keep coming back, the studio always feels comfortable to work in and the cottage itself with its artwork is a relaxed place all round, would definitely recommend to any artist wanting to record at an affordable price and still have the quality your songs deserve.”
— Lee Wilson, Archie Webbs
“My favourite place to record! Great quality, great knowledge and always get the finished article I wanted! Top equipment and relaxed atmosphere... Thanks again Hamish for helping with this number which is now available in all good stores ;)hahaha na but seriously Hamish ( Sound Sound) produced a song for me which is now selling all over the globe!!”
— Andy Borthwick, Darklight
“We took our first album "Life & Lessons To Be Learned" to be mixed by Sound Sound and from that moment on we had no hesitation where to go with our future recordings! We found not only a mixer/ producer of our work but a friend and collaborator who really bought into what we were trying to do. With a wealth of knowledge and experience at very reasonable rates the whole process was almost as much fun as recording it. We will hopefully be able to use the studio in future to make some recordings and continue our association with Sound Sound.”
— Colin Adams
“Friendly staff, flexible with time and procedures, and personal attention when it comes to "weird" stuff in rock bands, like synthy sounds, samples, fx and the like.
Hamish took good care of us, especially in recording the drums and bass for my band, The Tide Inside, even though it took ages. Never a frown.
— Mario Picuet Devendrabanjaarl, The Tide Inside (Perdonare Records)
“A great wee studio with a dedicated, professional, flexible and competent sound engineer”
— John McInally Jnr, RioFender
“I’ve worked with Hamish on two projects and his commitment to creating high quality material is awesome. He has a great work ethic, I’d recommend him to anyone and I will certainly work with him again in future. He’s also very affordable.”
— Nash the rapper
“Have worked with Hamish on several projects, including solo acoustic bass recording and band song recordings, which is a testament to how pleased I’ve been with the results! Final products have always been spot on!”
— Jim Strange
“Hey Hamish those sound brilliant :)
Thanks again with all the effort you put in we are very happy with the outcome.
hope to work with you again.”
”We’re really blown away at how much effort Hamish put in to getting us to sound as genuine as possible. Without him pushing us and giving input we don’t think the vocals would have sound anywhere near as good.”
— The Party Program
“Sound Sound provided a professional, friendly atmosphere to our first recordings. It was clear to us that Hamish wasn’t focusing on the pay cheque at the end of the recording, he really wanted to make the songs the best they can be just as much as we did. Whether that be staying in the studio after hours or bringing ideas to the table for the benefit of the tracks. Sound Sound delivered. Not just in the studio too, we used Sound Sound for some live recordings and at a more than reasonable price we got bang for our buck. A live recording so professional it was used on our 1st EP.”
“Hamish @ SoundSound is an absolute recording Oracle. Hamish not only recorded my music using new and innovative recording techniques, he made it way greater than I ever imagined it could be with his in depth knowledge of mixing and mastering techniques with a meticulous ear for perfection. He is a joy to work with and enjoys his work. He has a strong, strong desire to do his best to service your music in making it as good as it can be which I guarantee will be way better than you will ever have imagined. Hamish clearly takes pride in what he does and it shows in the end product.”
— Dead Good Villains
“Having recorded here with Neil at the helm with Perfect Blue in 1999 (or thereabouts) I recommended Sound Sound/Split Level to my fishy pals in Sea Bass Kid. Very happy to discover that the studio is still the same happy, friendly and professional environment that it was back in the day.
Hamish's expertise in producing/engineering was top notch and our banter together was fantastic.
Highly recommend you checking this cosy studio out.
— Neil Bisset, Sea Bass Kid
