Our control room is roughly 18' wide by 16' deep with a 9' ceiling. Judicious application of broadband absorption, bass trapping and substatial rear-wall diffusion provides a reliable critical-listening and mixing room free of room modes and early reflections.
Our main console is a pristine 36-input Mitsubishi Westar. Formerly known as Quad-Eight, the heritage of the Westar is the story of the original modular mainframe recording consoles designed and built by Quad-Eight in California in the seventies and eighties. We also have a 16-input Midas Pr04 tracking console with those giant Sowter input transformers. Main monitors are vintage Urei 813s accompanied by Yorkville YSM1p active near-fields, JBL Control 1 for bookshelf reference and Pyle PCB4BK TV mix cubes. Analog sessions are tracked by the Studer A80 two-inch 24 track. Analog mixes handled by the MCI JH110 quarter inch half-track.
Modern Mix and Delivery
Digital duties are executed by a MacPro running ProTools, Logic, or Digital Performer. We also have a beefy Windows box running Sonar Platinum Producer and WaveLab. All digital interface is via MOTU hardware. To complement the main monitors a selection of mid-field and near-field monitors adorns the meter bridge.
