New developments complete in the cosy little corner that used to be studio 1. Studio 1 was always a well equipped studio, sporting the famous Mackie 8 Buss recording console, NS-10 monitoring and a pretty serious looking rack box. For years students have enjoyed the the benefits of this top end project studio setup. A full featured 48 channel analogue mixer provides great diversity when considering mixing and recording options. And the accuracy of the legendary Yamaha NS-10 studio monitors makes it a favorite with mix engineers.
The added addition came in the form of a good sized dedicated tracking area, specifically designed and treated for drum and guitar recording. Able to operate independently from the main live room and fitted with enough recording inputs to track a full band. A generous rack unit is fitted on the left of the console, literally dripping with audio processors from dbx, Boss and Ensoniq. All of this is supported with a large patchbay for ultra versatile routing and signal processing. The air conditioned control room is large enough to accommodate, engineer, producer and couple of band members without a squeeze and the live room its self could comfortably fit an average 4 piece band with instruments.
The new and improved studio one has only been around for a week or so and has quickly become a favorite between students looking to record high quality overdubs on their existing productions. If your keen to come on down and have a look at the new studio, please feel free. Tours of our facilities run from 10am to 5pm daily. And remember! Everyday is an open day here at Cape Audio College. So come on down and have a look around. Below are some images of the completed face lift.Share
