FRASER T SMITH
I think the difference between Studio Creations and the multitude of other companies out there, is that with Mark & Justin, you get a bespoke service, tailor made for your needs. They really go the extra mile in working out the best solution for the job, and this, combined with the excellent after sales service backup.

Justin and Mark have fast become my “go to” guys. The advice and service they offer is unmatched. They understand the industry and have met some tight deadlines. I will be using Studio Creations for my system builds from now on.
19 TOURING LTD
In the short time that I have been using Studio Creations, they have met every expectation with a smile and a ‘no fuss’ attitude. I have nothing but praise for Justin and Mark’s enthusiasm and their level of service is beyond reproach. At last I can recommend a company to my peers that I know will deliver on time and give excellent and knowledgeable support.
“I worked with Studio Creations from the beginning on my studio. From the design process to its implementation I found them clear and straightforward. They helped me use my space creatively and economically and I now have a studio that is not only beautiful but very practical.

"I’ve dealt with Mark for many years now and cannot recommend him highly enough. His prices are very competitive and, most importantly, In a world where, when something goes wrong, other sales teams can be so much harder to get hold of than before the sale, his support has always been quick and incisive, and has got me out of (especially digidesign) trouble on a number of occasions. The fact he is now offering 24/7 support is just another reason that it’s so much smarter to buy from him than the big stores."

19 Touring Ltd
"We chose Studio Creations after a lengthy consultation process with a number of companies. Music Technology and Innovation is an internationally renowned research centre with links to the Groupe de Recherches Musicales and the Sorbonne in Paris, ZKM in Germany and NOTAM Norway. We have international composers developing cutting edge multi-channel music compositions alongside experimental performance, sound art and more traditional recording practices. Therefore we had very specific, specialised needs that required a flexible, informed and professional company.
Despite the complex brief Studio Creations in collaboration with the technical team were able to break down the requirements and deliver cost effective high quality solutions. This often daunting and meticulous process was effortlessly managed and delivered by the Studio Creations team from wiring planning and execution, to cost and project management.
Since the installation we have all noted the significant improvements in sound quality and as time has gone on the flexibility of the new system has allowed new ways to compose to be developed whilst maintaining previous compatibilities."
Simon Smith – Music, Technology & Innovation Technician
De Montfort University
"Studio Creations Limited has just supplied the University of Derby, with three portable bespoke Pro Tools HD systems, for their commercial training suites. Working closely with the Electronics & Sound teaching team, they have provided a solution, that is Taylor made for on and off site training. SCL offered competitive pricing, excellent project development and support, as well as second to none after-sales service. The time and attention they have offered have been excellent; we will certainly use their expertise again."
Stephanie Marsland - Senior Lecturer Electronics & Sound University of Derby
"In the spring of 2016 we received funding for the updating of our two recording studios and teaching lab / mac suite. The two studios were based around Pro Tools HD systems but the department was using other software and needed a more flexible system. With the advise of Studio Creations we chose to base the studio around the Focusrite Red 4 pre which allowed us to use Pro tools HDX and switch to a native thunderbolt driver when using Logic and Quicktime. It also opened up the possibility of recording from any room in the department to either of the studios. At the same time we were able to rationalise and improve the student/teaching workflow in our studios and teaching spaces
Studio Creations were able to work with the university deadlines and procedures and their flexibility to accommodate and manage unforeseen changes meant that the job was smooth and on time.
Their level of expertise and industry contacts meant that we were able to give students cutting edge technologies without being unsupported or having the system fall over. Further to which their aftercare is second to none and rare in the education sector
We have received numerous compliments from the teaching staff and students, it has now become a focus for prospective students on open days!"
"I've been using Studio Creations for about 4 years now particularly for high end out board purchases. They have also supplied AVID Pro Tools equipment, such as crossgrades on HD systems and additional IO's etc to both myself and Alchemea LTD.
I like the fact that the guys there, Justin and Mark are knowledgeable about what they are selling and they are not just shifting boxes. When you are buying outboard or computer gear that costs as much as a small car, you want to know that you have support from your dealer, should you have any questions or issues with it. Justin and Mark have come through for me when I've needed that support. You don't get that from an online store based "somewhere" in the EU."
Neil Pickles - Director Alchemea, Lecturer & Freelance Audio Engineer
"For the last 6 years I’ve dealt with Mark Russell for my pro audio needs. When either working as a freelance engineer, purchasing kit for my own home set up or for the Northampton College Music Department, Mark has always delivered the goods, so it was a natural progression to continue working with him and Studio Creations. A man of his word that has provided me with a pro service, good prices and excellent after sales support. If this is the service you’re after, look no further than Studio Creations."

Pete Tong & Dave Spoon
"When looking at the vast new array of equipment available for home recording, it is hard to get a complete grasp on advances in audio recording technology unless you spend months researching. Studio Creations supply up to date technological knowledge and combine it with a friendly and comprehensive service that takes the pressure off producers. When we upgraded our studio we found Mark & Justin to be fast, efficient and responsible. In other words, they did what they said they would do and they call you back quickly! We will be using them again."
Broadcaster / Writer / Producer.
"Travelling two days across Europe without sleeping, going through the snow-capped Alps, risking head-on collisions with reindeers and deers popping out in the street, but most of all risking Swiss jail for an absolutely regular delivery note.. and all this just for delivering the equipment in time! Sounds good!! What else should we say about their service?"
"In all my dealings with SCL, from the initial enquiry right through to the finished installation, I was always more than happy with the responses to my requests and changes. The installation and complicated integration with our existing set up was completed with ease and everything happened when they said it would and without fuss. I have found dealing with SCL nothing but a pleasure and the back up service is worth the money alone..."

Jan, manager Hype studio’s Belgium
"The new ProTools system is working flawlessly. I have to tell you we were blown away by your knowledge and attention to detail. The system was installed in double quick time and everything was double checked before the engineer left the studio. Our broadcast workflow for Sky3D and MTV is rather unusual, but you full understood it and made the transition to the new system a breeze. Thank you. Top notch."
"At ID Audio we were in the middle of a variety of projects ranging from Music to AV, Sound Design and Audiobooks. On top of this we were about to move Studios and up to our necks in it! Mark and Justin made the daunting transition of upgrading our old ProTools systems and Macs seamless and stress free. They even fixed an old preamp during the installation which was vital for the next day’s recording. Invaluable and unrivalled support!"
Adam & Patch – Owners
"Studio Creation’s help and advice has been invaluable in making the launch of a new commercial recording studio in London a success. The service we receive from Mark and Justin is top notch and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them."
