'Instrument Studio VR' is a complete virtual recording studio with "all the instruments and equipment needed to make a record."

Skywatcher VR are asking for the people of Leitrim to support them by voting for them in the prestigious competition by clicking here to vote for them. The DreamlandXR Online competition is the only program of its kind where the general public both nominates and votes for the winners through their website.
The app was developed by Paul Cullen who spent the past two years learning to develop for VR, initially developing a simple virtual drumkit in 2017.
Assisting Cullen are Kenny and Carl, audio specialists from platinum selling Irish band Relish.
