EQUIPMENT

We use very high end audio equipment, such as Apogee Rosetta converters, Neve or SSL pre-amps, recording everything on our 24buss Soundtracs Quartz analogue mixing console. Our range of over 40 microphones includes choice picks like a Neumann U87, Shure SM7, and 2 EMI 1949 ribbon mics.

 

We record to Logic X, but there is a 2" Lyrec  24 track, a half inch Fostex E16 and a 2 track quarter inch Tascam for the tapeheads out there.

 

We collect all sorts of amps, Fender, Gallien Kruger, Acoustic, Selmer, Wesminster, and guitars too- Rickenbacker, Fender, Epiphone, Italia, Levin, Gretch, Eccleshall. 

 

Other items of note are our C3 Hammond, and our Samick Upright piano (which is regularly tuned).

 

The studio live room can comfortably record up to 10 musicians and 24 channels of sound simultaneously. For bands, we love recording the main take all together, so you get the best possible feel at source. Acoustic screens and booths reduce spill to a minimum.
