Record producer Julie McLarnon’s finely crafted sound has flourished since setting up her Analogue Catalogue Vintage Recording studio. Cara Gibney pays a visit
Julie McLarnon began her career working at Strawberry Studios in Stockport as assistant to legendary producer Martin Hannett

In 2014, record producer and recording engineer Julie McLarnon transported her entire Analogue Catalogue Vintage Recording Studio from Manchester to rural Rathfriland, a market town set between Slieve Croob, Banbridge and the Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland.

She’d measured the stone walls with a tape and discovered they were the same as the control room in her studio back home. “So, we knew it would be possible to lift the control room, jigsaw it, and reassemble the jigsaw here.

At the age of 16, she was accepted onto the Recording Technology course at University College Salford run by the renowned recording engineer and record producer Bill Leader.
