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.

Things are moving up in our main tracking room. Our most recent addition to our already almighty arsenal of audio weapons is none other than the mythical Focusrite RED series processors, in the form of the RED3 stereo compressor and the awesome RED2 equalizer. These puppies sound amazing! I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. And after the initial test runs mops where brought out to saturate the drool that was left on the floor. The Focusrite RED series are up there with some of the best tools on the market. Cape audio college students are extremely lucky to be gaining valuable experience with processors of this heritage. The RED’s are here and they are here to stay. Carry on reading, we have some videos and links to wet your taste buds. Read more »Share
