The Dining Room Studio has the facility for recording up to 32 tracks simultaneously or, with some reconfiguration, up to 72 tracks. The hub of the studio is a Tascam DM3200 digital mixer currently configured for 32 simultaneous channels to and from a suite of three MOTU 24 channel interfaces which, in turn, feed the main DAW running Steinberg Cubase 7.

There is a good selection of available microphones covering all bases for both voice and instruments including models by SE Electronics, Rode, Golden Age, Sennheiser, AKG and Shure as well as a few hand built or hand modified FET and valve condensers. These are paired with great quality preamps including gems like all-valve preamps by TL Audio and a hand built dual channel FiveFish SC-1 (uses a Neve style topology).

The main DAW used is Cubase 7 utilising professional quality plug-ins from TC Electronic, UAD, Sonnox, Waves, Celemony, Native Instruments, Arturia, EastWest, Spectrasonics, IK Multimedia and MOTU amongst others. There is also provision to handle ProTools (up to v10) projects.
