Refinery Recording is a state of the art, industry standard recording studio situated in the same complex as Refinery School of Music. Over the last few years, Refinery Recording has gained the reputation of being one of Australia's leading recording facilities. From basic demo recordings, voice-overs, film soundtracks to world-class final releases, we have it all covered.


Boasting multiple Gold and Platinum Albums and singles over the last 3 decades, we have tremendous experience in producing, recording and mixing all genres of music including pop, R'n'B, hip hop, rap, indie rock, metal, blues, gospel and Electronic Dance music.


Having this world-class studio environment within reach of all our Music School students is a great advantage and rarity that is unique to our complex. Students will have the opportunity to record demos and gain the real-world studio experience or even get to the point of recording final release product as part of our Write Record Release program. 


The Recording studio was acoustically designed by legendary Studio designer John Sayers. The studio complex comprises of a very comfortable large control room, a huge live room, a drum booth, a guitar booth, a vocal booth and lastly, a very relaxing chill out area.
