Digital Recording Studio
Moonstone Studios has always aimed to be a resource for Christian musicians and worship leaders, and to make quality professional standard worship albums.
Over the years the studio has undergone many changes and now features state-of- the-art studio production software and equipment [see equipment list]
For nearly 20 years, it has been used by a wide range of Christian organisations and individual worship leaders based in the U.K.
As the ministry of We Are One! has developed, the studio has been increasingly used as a resource to mentor and develop the talents of young musicians and singers who live in countries that have experienced ethnic division and conflict.
