Enter Abbey Road Studios with Virtual Reality
Abbey Road Studios is the internationally renowned London recording studio that has hosted legendary artists like Pink Floyd and the Beatles. Now you can see it for yourself.
Last year, Google made it possible to look inside and explore the famous recording studio on PC and devices. It was clear that people wanted to get a glimpse of the famous studio for some legendary recordings, as more than 2 million people around the world have entered the studio practically since last year.
Thanks to its popularity, Google made its Abbey Road Studios virtual tour work with Google Cardboard. With their new app, you can explore the studios in virtual reality, including a guided tour that takes you from the 1930s to the present day, narrated by Giles Martin, son of the recently deceased famous Beatles producer George Martin (RIP).
Once you’ve taken the nine-part guided tour, you can explore the studios on your own and get a first-person look at the studio. Rooms include “hidden gems like Studio 3’s mirrored drum room, where mirrors help create close, bright, and loud sound quality.” Discover one of Abbey Road’s Mastering Suites, where a record gets its final touch before a release. In Studio 1, find out what it’s like to be in a recording session with the London Symphony Orchestra in surround sound.
Download the app for Android now and explore on your own. Google announces that an iOS app will be available soon.
