” As soon as we got to The Roadee Tom welcomed us and made us feel at ease immediately, he had already prepped everything so we were ready to roll.  It was a fantastic experience for my daughter Megan who thoroughly enjoyed recording and filming her video, it is an experience she will never forget. Tom was very accommodating and ensured we were happy with the final product which we must say was amazing. I would not hesitate recommending CMP Studios; thanks guys!”

Joe Noya

“Glen did a brilliant job at catching our live sound, and was a joy to work with! He really did us proud with the final mixes. Owe you some beers for that mate! Awesome.

“To top that, Tom then took some great photos of us in the Live Room, which Alex used for his excellent blog documenting our day.

“Really could not have asked for anything more, great guys to work with and highly recommended.”

Peter Foreman – bassist in covers rock band Bad Self

“As for the final product, we are thrilled with it! Our CD looks slick and professional, with a track listing and a great pic of our PUG dog emblazoned upon it – and we sound pretty good too!

“From the start, Glen – ably assisted by Ross – put me at ease and guided me through the recording procedure – as well as supplying me with a first-class mug of coffee!! After 3 ‘takes’ our work was done and I am absolutely delighted with the end result!

“I collected the finished CD yesterday and Glen had placed a photo of me and my daughter, along with my chosen wording, on the label.

“I can’t praise CMP enough for their professional and friendly service, not to mention their very reasonable pricing, and I would happily recommend them to anyone.

“Many thanks again for a brilliant job – well done!!”

Paul Mitchell – President of The Association of The UK School of Professional Toastmasters

“Dear Tom,

“I am writing to your studio with regards to a recent recording session undertaken by my Son, Luca. E Wells.

“May I say we both found the whole process most enjoyable, and made all the better by the relaxed and informal atmosphere. I have been involved with recording at a number of studios in the past and consider CMP to be of the highest quality.

“I would strongly recommend their services for anyone, from the most inexperienced to the dedicated professional. I suggest to check out their website and Facebook pages to give you a flavour of the scope of sevices on offer.

“Well done!

“Kind regards, R. E. Wells”

“CMP is the most professional studio ever, with a fantastic team of sound engineers! Very, very highly recommended!

“Bailey, my 13 year-old boy, had his first taste of what it’s like to have his voice recorded and fully mastered – in addition to being filmed as he performed in a professional studio environment.

“Your extraordinary efforts, expertise and professionalism made us all feel so important – Bailey said he felt like a star!

“This was in fact my Christmas present to myself, as it gave me such pleasure to see what a specialist recording studio could do – and to see Bailey’s reaction to it all was the ultimate reward!

“He loved his experience and will be coming back again soon, but first we look forward to hearing his songs once they’re all finished!

“Such a fantastic experience! A big thank you to Tom, the studio’s co-owner, and his amazing team – we love you all!”

Sam Constable – mother to singer & actor Bailey Constable

“Hi Tom & Glen,

“Thank you very much for the recording session yesterday. The band enjoyed it very much and we are very happy with the results. The quality of the drum recording in particular is outstanding – this is usually the most difficult bit to achieve!

“A huge thanks, and we will be back!”

“Hi Tom,

“I’d just like to say that after 30 years + playing bass, I realised I’d never been in a proper recording studio before. It was only when other members of the band I’m in arranged for us to do a demo at CMP Studios in Eastbourne, that I realised.

“Although I was a little nervous beforehand, I came to the end of our recording session having had one of the most fun days I’ve had for a very long time!

“I was so impressed with your helpful, kind and very patient attitude. Our guitarist Tony had a painful bad shoulder, but you just took it in your stride by allowing him time to get himself together with absolutely no rush. And all your staff were extremely polite too.

“You were highly competent and professional in everything that you said and did, and your equipment is amazing and of good quality. The end result is a top-notch demo CD, beautifully mastered – I’ve never heard our band sound so good!

“Tony has been to a few studios around the south east, and he said that CMP is the best by a long way and I totally agree with him.

“You give it 110% – and we will definitely be back, as it was an absolute pleasure and I can’t stop smiling about it!

“Kind regards, Keith”

Keith Swaddling – bassist of multi-genre covers band Beat Street

John, Keith, Steve and Stuart – from Sussex-based classic rock band MURGATROYD

Phil Jordan – Brighton-based singer-songwriter

“Hey guys, I just got back home after our rehearsal and listened to the full CD – all ten tracks for the first time!

“Great overall recorded sound – a brilliant job of capturing our live sound (according to those who’ve heard us live)! Hilary, my wife, says ‘Wow!’.

“Being behind the drum kit, I never really know what we sound like out front. So it’s been amazing for me to hear our music coming out of the speakers. Thanks very much.

“See you soon for more!”

Nicholas Rowland – drummer for local rock trio

“Harriet really enjoyed her first session in a recording studio and I have now listened to the CD – and the recording is excellent! Everyone is very complimentary!

“Thank you so much for all your help and support. All your staff were very encouraging which helped greatly in easing her nerves, and it was lovely to hear her sing so beautifully and now have such a good recording!

“I hope to see you again sometime soon! With many thanks again.”

“I’ve recorded both pop vocals in one session, and a traditional Moroccan music duo (with percussion and vocals) a few months later. On both occasions, I was very impressed by all aspects of CMP Studios!

“The prices are extremely reasonable for the service provided, the results are great and it was a real pleasure to spend time with Tom and his team.

“I was particularly impressed with the Moroccan music session. It’s a very different style of music and it was recorded “live” with just a few overdubs. Tom took all this in his stride and got us a really great sounding result – a fantastic job all round!”

Haleshla – husband & wife duo from Meknes, Morocco

“Thank you Tom at CMP Studios – we were met with a big, smiling welcome! A very relaxed, comfortable experience – extremely professional, very knowledgeable and packed full of great ideas. (I also got to enjoy a decent cup of tea, Earl Grey if you please!) Would highly recommend this for any musicians.”

Tiffany & Sue Robinson – London College of Music student and her mother

“Please would you pass on our sincere thanks to Tom!

“My son Martin (and husband Stuart) thoroughly enjoyed their time with Tom today, during which he very generously gave them a tour of the studio and chatted with them for a long time about music & music production.

“As a result of their visit, Martin is buzzing with enthusiasm and doubly intent on pursuing a musical career in the future!

“Thank you again for allowing Martin this unique opportunity, and thanks to Tom for his friendliness and generosity of time – when I’m sure he is busy with his own workload! With very best wishes, Teresa.”

Teresa Leitch – mother to a budding musician

“Thinking of new ideas for children’s parties is always a bit of a headache but boy did I come up trumps with CMP Studios!

“I took my daughter and her 6 friends to the Eastbourne studio, as we wanted to celebrate her 12th birthday with a recording package. What a fantastic experience!

“It was their first time in a recording studio and they were a tad nervous to begin with but the guys looked after them so well, immediately putting them at ease.

“They soon enjoyed being made to feel like pop stars (a few prima donnas began to emerge too) and after rehearsing their chosen songs, they were ready to record!

“It all sounded amazing! As part of the package, each of the girls receives a CD mix with all their recordings and some personalised artwork too (which we will receive tomorrow). We can’t wait – it was an experience we won’t forget!

“I can highly recommend CMP Studios, and I would like to thank Tom & Alex especially for making it all possible. Thank you xx”

Rachael Connel – recommending the CMP Studio Experience Package

The experience was awesome & I recommend CMP to anyone considering recording a song or two. Thanks again to Tom!”

Paula Valder – singer

“Recently, CMP Studios made a first class musical theatre show reel and corresponding CD for me entitled ‘Mixed Emotions – Paul Bentinck in Concert’. Tom Askaroff, the managing director, is indeed a highly talented recording producer with exceptional technical talent. He is also a very caring person who is a delight to work with.

“As a professional actor, I was highly delighted with what he produced for me and I now have my show reel up on YouTube, together with some excellent DVDs to be uploaded to my Spotlight and Castingcallpro sites. Prices are extremely competitive and I know of no other recording company that could match these. I highly recommend CMP Studios to all actors, performing artists and commercial concerns.”

Paul Bentinck – singer/actor

“Recording at CMP Studios was my first studio experience and one I’ll never forget! The guys at CMP know exactly what they’re doing and that shows through their setting up, recording and mixing.

Mark Lambird – MD, Eastbourne Motoring Centre Ltd

“What started off as a few lyrics put together one weekend, with the tune of ‘I Need A Hero’, then became a lot, lot more and the song transformed to Lushington Chiropractic….I Need A Chiro!

“We booked out CMP Studios, which was all very exciting! It had a great atmosphere as soon as you walked through the doors and we were all made to feel very welcome. It was a little nerve-racking to start off with, what with the extremely impressive equipment surrounding us and actually knowing that this was now the time of putting all our singing lessons together and recording it for real!  We soon found our feet though and there was no stopping us. A fantastic experience was had by all and one that we won’t forget.

“We would all like to thank Tom and CMP Studios for all of their help, professionalism and skills throughout.”

Lushington Chiropractic Ltd

“When you are a solo artist there is always a bit of vulnerability. It doesn’t matter how experienced you are: when you write and record your own music, your heart is always on your sleeve.

“I found CMP on the web and struck a deal for my album. When I turned up to work, it took no time at all to feel relaxed in this very creative environment – and the young team went about their work in a very professional and helpful way. Tom was very patient with me and my (probably treatable) fanatical attention to detail. Needless to say I am very happy with the recording and am also very happy to unhesitatingly recommend this wonderful studio.”

Redvers Downs – solo artist

“Much enjoyed our second recording session – the same friendly welcome, great service and very professional.  We look forward to future piano sessions!”

Robert and Fionagh Green

“We booked the studio to record our album – celebrating our reformation after many years of disagreement, spitting nails, legal cases, artistic differences, so on and so forth. We hardly ever agree on anything, but we grudgingly accepted that the studio was, and is, a great place to lay down some fresh tracks. And, of course, we haven’t become Fat Rich Bastards by throwing money away and paying more than we had to for anything!

“So I’m pleased to confirm that the Gold Album Package that we bought was exceptional value for money, and the team at CMP bent over backwards to make us very happy indeed! Hopefully the product, once released, will make us even Fatter Richer Bastards!!!!”

Fat Rich Bastards – local 1960s tribute act

“Just from my point of view, I wanted to thank you for giving Charlotte this opportunity. The experience on the day was great and you guys certainly made her feel relaxed about what she was doing – this is all very alien to her! I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you when Charlotte picked up the recording – work gets in the way of the best things sometimes!

“Suffice to say we are both absolutely blown away by it! The quality is great and the sampling of her voice works really well. We are hoping to use your services again in the new year (should finances permit), to get a few more tracks recorded as a demo disc. Thanks again for a great afternoon!”

Allan Staples – father of Charlotte Staples, local singer

“After playing the accordion for many years, I tried on a number of occasions to produce recordings via my computer and video camera (which was fine but in fairness did not reflect the true quality of the music played). I therefore decided to contact a professional recording studio to produce a CD. After a survey of recording studios in the Sussex area, I found that CMP Studios offered state-of-the-art recording facilities at a very competitive price.

“This was my first visit to such a professional studio. The plan was to produce 3 tracks, since I had booked the studio for an hour and Tom was not sure how many takes he would need. The experience was really great – after the initial mic and equipment setup, we started recording the first song in my programme.

“I was made to feel so at ease that we managed to record 14 tracks in the allocated period of 1 hour – most done on the first take! We also managed to connect a Roland Midi BK-7M to my ‘By Marco’ Accordion, so that we could evaluate the difference between a true acoustic instrument and an electronically-assisted instrument.

“I’d recommend a visit to CMP to any musician who’s serious about his or her music and performance!”

Meo Visconti – Sussex-based accordionist

“Have been using the studio for a while now. Very happy with the quality of both equipment and sound. Their client service is also second to none. CMP Studios are never too busy to speak to you or help you out – I will 100% be coming back!”

Tom Fitzpatrick – Sussex-based singer

“I always look forward to rehearsing here. A great bunch of guys, really impressive facilities and very reasonable rates. I would highly recommend CMP Studios to any musicians.”

Glynn Webb – drummer

“Having used some of the best studios in London, we were really amazed to find such a professional outfit in Eastbourne. Great atmosphere, sound equipment & the guys at CMP really know their stuff.”

The Octomen

“Thanks Tom, Glen, Joel, Rory and Alex for the brilliant job you did recording Michael’s Charity Single ‘Just Sing!’ (performed by The Evergreen Singers, together with Eastbourne Gilbert & Sullivan Society).

“Your efforts in clearing and preparing the Planahead art room opposite, to accommodate 20 singers and a piano, must have been a pretty unusual challenge. You produced a brilliantly laid out sound stage. All the singers had a great evening, with some of them recording for the very first time.

“Your patience and professionalism, both with the recording and with the mixing and mastering of ‘Just Sing!’ was much appreciated. We played the master copy at a recent rehearsal and everyone was very pleased with the great sound that you have produced, and we hope to release the single in the New Year – supported by a press and radio campaign.”

Michael and Mavis Sellings

“CMP is an excellent place to record, rehearse and teach. It has good facilities and the friendly staff have an excellent approach to music. Highly recommended!”

Gareth Hellings – local muscian

“I feel really comfortable working at CMP, the Studio is well-equipped with everything I could possibly need. The staff take the time to sit and listen, in order to find out exactly what I want and also to give their input – which has been gratefully received!”

Daniella Hagga – local rock guitarist

“A very relaxed environment, they really put me at ease. Being in a relaxed situation makes it easier to play & sing. I would recommend CMP to anyone who has a song that needs to be recorded.”

The Napoleons

“Splitters love the professional approach that CMP offers its clients. They provide a high level rehearsal room and recording possibilities at brilliant rates. We feel privileged to have such a fantastic venue at our disposal. It is without doubt the best rehearsal space we know of and after using it for many years there is still nowhere else we would rather use.”

Matt – Splitters

“Couldn’t ask for more from the Studio – all top quality equipment and instruments, reasonable pricing and, most importantly, clued up and affable staff.”

Jack Turner

“Excellent, everyone was very friendly!!”

Iain Massey

“It’s always great to find a well-equipped studio at the centre of a thriving community outside London, and Tom and the team at CMP provide a friendly, professional and knowledgeable service. As a voiceover artist, it’s essential to find a studio with experience of something other than just music recording, and the voice booth is a good space for working in.”

Kate Daubney, Intelligent Voiceover

“Great service provided week in and out – friendly, reliable and professional! Clean environment and comfortable to work in.”


“We’ve enjoyed good relations with CMP Studios. They are very friendly and hospitable, the environment is comfortable, facilities excellent and the standard of work is very high. As our own studio is opposite, I know for a fact that they are in constant demand.”

Pete Talbot – The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company

Spine tingling!”

Mike Tourle

“My first experience of CMP studios was as a venue for band rehearsal once a week following the alterations to the studio a couple of years ago. I had a hand in the build and knew that the place would be something special. Myself and my band couldn’t believe the quality of the sound in the live room compared to where we had been using and after one practice we were sold.

“Twinned with the awesome sound from the live room there are obviously all the other factors that make CMP the perfect studio whether you are looking for a practice venue or a fully mastered recording. The equipment is nothing less than top notch, from the drums and amps to the mixing desk and all the clever stuff inside the control room.

 “The guys at the studio are a credit to Tom and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with an ever present professionalism, are very welcoming. The level of knowledge and skill on show amongst the guys is second to none. And the finished recordings are testament to themselves. With prices tailored to suit all budgets and from demo’s to albums this has to be one of the best venues in the south east.

 “CMP has my vote and I will certainly be back for anything my band needs in the future.”

Steve Tibbals

“We’ve just recorded our first cd at CMP Studios, having practiced there for the last 2 years. We were all blown away by the professionalism and the cd sounds awesome! big thanks to the very cool dudes at CMP.”

“I usually dislike recording in professional studios because I find them tense and clinical. CMP is totally the opposite of this, and I’m glad I found them. The staff are accommodating and hard working, and the results are great. Recommended.”

“I have been at CMP Studios for a little over a year now, the facilities and staff are fantastic – I practice there every week and do not plan to change that. I spent a day recording there and Tom made it very comfortable for us and provided a professional service. I recommend CMP Studios to any band or solo artist.”

“If you haven’t heard your dream sound from your instrument, then you haven’t recorded at CMP Studios!!!”

Andy Hoadly

“CMP Studios catered to my every need during our time there, whether we were recording or just rehearsing the level of service was second to none. Not only was the final result superb, the thing that struck me most was that they really take the time to make you feel at home and on countless occasions, go far beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend this studio to anybody. Professional set up, fantastic finished product and first class service, I really can’t find any fault with this company! Look forward to working with them again soon.”

“I had a beef about the local hospital and I wanted to record a song about it. Not only did you help with the arrangements and production values, but you turned out the final product brilliantly, help me set up a YouTube account and publicise it. You added significant value and were really happy to go that extra mile, I am sure future patients of Eastbourne Hospital will have hot toast as a result of your good work. Thank you.”

“Firstly on behalf of the band I wanted to say a big thank you. We had rehearsed in a number of studios prior to finding CMP.  All I can say is that your facilities are by far the best locally by a country mile. We thoroughly enjoy our rehearsal nights at CMP. I know I speak for all of us, when I say that we all love your hospitality and the banter we have outside when we need a breather.”
