Boutique Learning.

Altar is not a school or college, its a working studio offering excusive opportunities for you to train under professionals who work in the industry. Classes and workshops are small, consisting of less than 10 students or you can request private one to one sessions.

Equipped with the latest software and hardware ranging from classic samplers and synthesizers, through to boutique hardware, you have the chance to learn on both formats. This alongside EuroRack modular equipment and crate digging classes with over a 1,000 vinyl records to choose from, we have workshops and classes that not only inspire, but also help unleash your creativity.

Professional Tuition.

Altar studios is run by the team behind Dance Music Production, the longest running e-learning site for electronic music producers. We also authored the award winning industry standard textbook on the production of electronic music. Published via Routledge, The Dance Music Manual has been translated into numerous languages and is required reading at international institutions across the world, including Cambridge, Harvard and Yale.

We have recorded, mastered and produced music for Sony, Warner, Polydor and Polygram amongst many other large labels, and chair Electronic Music at the Audio Engineering Society.

Studio Services.

Unless you want your music to sound the same as every kid with a laptop and pirated software, you need something extra to stand out to record labels.

We can stereo sum, mix and/or master your music through some of the most boutique and celebrated hardware available with equipment from Manley, API, SSL, Neve, Tube-Tech, Universal Audio and Chandler.

All our work is performed by professional, experienced audio engineers using a mix of hardware and software, so you’re guaranteed stand out results. What’s more you can attend to watch and learn as we mix and master your music.
