Our Control Room features a 32 channel Neotek Elite Series II inline console. In addition to 32 input channels, the console features 8 stereo Submix/Line Input Return Modules. The console is capable of 80 channels in Mix mode. Moving fader automation is Uptown Series 2000. The console was recently re-capped and op amps upgraded to lower distortion types. We also added direct outputs and a second line input path on all channels, accessible by the custom 800 point patch bay. The Neotek was also modified to feature high resolution 40 segment bar graph metering on all 32 input channels and 8 stereo input modules.
Our Mac Pro™ is currently running the latest release of MOTU Digital Performer™ with four MOTU HD192 converters for a total of 48 192k capable inputs and outputs. We have a wide selection of MOTU and Waves plug-ins. Mixing in Performer is controlled by a Mackie™ Control Universal with 24 faders. In addition to the digital recording system, we offer two Otari™ MTR 90 MkIII 2” Analog 24 track recorders, with 16 track heads available for one. We also offer 24 channels of Dolby™ SR.
Both of our Otaris are meticulously maintained by studio co-owner and chief engineer, Dave Wilkerson. All of the studio's recording devices are locked via a Timeline MicroLynx™ Synchronizer. A full complement of classic mic pre-amps and outboard electronics are included.
Our 42 x 35 x 16' Live Room allows ample space for full band live tracking or video production. We have two iso-booths located just off of the main room, as well as three other isolated spaces for tracking the whole group at once. Our inventory of amps and instruments are included at no additional charge.
