A system for an online metaverse recording studio is described, with reference to a case study implementation of Studio 4 of the renowned BBC Maida Vale Recording Studios. The system allows multiple remote musicians to connect over a network, providing a shared virtual acoustic space, with interactive immersive audio, XR display, and low-latency throughput.

A discussion of the overall success of the implementation is presented.
