Online studio directory All Studios has relaunched with an entirely redeveloped backend and a range of new features.
The new features include a facility for studios to register and update their details online via password protected accounts. Upgraded listings have also been redesigned to offer a tiered system of Basic (free), Silver and Gold listings, which display various levels of information and images to potential clients and site users.
There are also links to maps of each studio's location for those signed up to Silver or Gold, as well as the opportunity to reply to clients' comments in the new Ratings & Reviews service. For studio seekers, an updated interface permits multiple-parameter searches, including location, mixing console, price, capacity and equipment, allowing users to extract a list of studios from an extensive database comprising over 500 UK and international studios.
Weblinks have been added to studios' listings where available, designed to provide easier access to each studio's website.
There are also two brand new studio categories to search: Dry Hire/Longterm Let and Location Recording/Mobile Studios. The company has begun the process of expanding its international database by adding a limited number of specific countries to the location searches. More countries will be added as required in the months ahead.
