Mosfilm's Studio 1 - is one of the largest recording studios in Europe

Mosfilm’s Studio 1 was built in 1990 by the American audio engineer and acoustician Tom Hidley and was redesigned in 2006 by the British studio architect Roger D’Arcy. For many years the studio has cooperated with world-renowned sound labels and film companies. Today it is one of the largest world-class studios.

Studio One can easily accommodate a large orchestra and chorus while also being perfect for chamber ensembles, soloists and overdubs. Studio reverberation time is 1.8 seconds. Isolated booths for drums and solo instruments allow separating musicians from the full band. The studio also has three Steinway grand pianos.

The number and variety of projects created in Studio One would be difficult to calculate. Many famous artists and composers have recorded music here, including Angelo Badalamenti, Randy Brecker, Montserrat Caballe, José Carreras, Lara Fabian, Antigoni Goni, Donald Harrison, Michel Legrand, Vangelis.

ATC loudspeakers, a Solid State Logic XL9000K console with 80 channels and Film Scoring, Prism Sound converters, Avid Pro Tools Ultimate and Merging Pyramix workstations allow for recording and mixing music in stereo and 5.1.
