In the very beautiful hall decorated in a style reminiscent of a metro subway station overlooking the acoustic doors that allow access to the recording and control areas.
In all, seven rooms are devoted to the live recording plus one dedicated as a control room and one dedicated for pre-production and arrangement work.
A big space therefore, to best capture the essence of your music and your creativity.
In the ample 40 sqm, the control room shows off the flagship Solid State Logic, the legendary analog console SSL Duality with a configuration of 48 ch.
Behind the console and at right the racks of analog outboards, at left a comfortable desk with two monitors and a keyboard connected to the computer housed in an appropriate machine room and an additional large high-mounted screen behind the console.
The heart of the system of recording and mixing is composed of, in addition to the SSL Duality, also a Mac Pro with 24 cores and 64 GB of RAM in which are housed two ProTools HDX cards and a UAD Octo Core card.
One of the rooms for live recording has been acoustically designed for recording the drums. It is a large room of 30 square meters that enables recordings of very high quality without annoying reflections or standing waves. Provides an adequate reverberation time that makes for an excellent recording environment. Metro Records supplies the splendid DW Collector's Satin Oil Shellset drum set complete with Sabian AAX and HHX series cymbals.
The room dedicated to the Yamaha C7 grand piano is a marvel of design and acoustic planning. When the pianist plays in this room, he or she feels enveloped by the music which elicits a sensation so pleasurable as to draw the maximum in any performance.
Two special cabinets have been setup to house speaker amps for guitar and bass. The routing is highly flexible and allows any positioning of the head and musician in any of the live recording rooms and/or control room.
Born already designed for vocal recordings and the acoustic planning has been done for this, but also excellent acoustic guitar and woodwind recordings have been made.
The machine room houses the main computer system Mac Pro, protools hardware, the control unit of the TC Electronics system 6000, the Lexicon 224x and the patch bay for the Hear Back System headphone monitoring system that allows to customize the listening monitor for each musician.
