Neve Studio from back

The Neve Control Room features the largest vintage Neve in the world with 80 channels of 31105 mic pre/eqs and Neve flying faders.

Neve Studio's 8078 console

This one of a kind console has an extensive history. The left hand side of this vintage 8078 was the original west coast Motown console. It later resided in Madonna's "Brooklyn" studio. Yoshiki Hayashi then acquired the studio which became Ecstasy.

The console was then combined with another 8078 by Pat Schnider and Wess Dolly into its present form.

The monitoring features George Augspurger designed mains with dual JBL 18” subs on each side. Near field monitors include: NS-10's, ProAcs, PMC’s, Adams, Genelecs and many more. The Control Room is slightly elevated, looking down in to the large tracking room.

Having two ISO booths in the control room open up convenient possibilities. Not only can they be used for overdubbing, vocals, guitars and percussion, they are large enough to accommodate a drum kit. There are two Studer A27 24 track analog tape machines at Sonic Ranch.
