- "a" studio -
control room

The Vincent Van Haaff designed control room is laid out with flexibility to accommodate different working styles. The racks are kept low to accommodate additional equipment and

snakes are in place to configure additional outboard. The natural wood surfaces along with the stained glass windows and the infinitely variable lighting makes for an inspiring

atmosphere to work in.

The API Legacy Plus is one of the three factory installed Neve Flaying Faders (The console was purchased in 2016 from Supernatural Studios in Portlan Oregon).


With Flaying Fader automation, 96 channels in mix down, three mix busses and 40 API 512 mic pres,

the A Studio can accommodate both, tracking and mixing at an extraordinary level.

There is a clear line of vision from the Control Room to the Back Room.
