Analog-to-Digital Recording Process:
Now the “hit sound” of analog tape is available with the ease of digital editing, thanks to the revolutionary CLASP system!
Eliminate every negative aspect of recording to analog tape but keep that warm, analog sound! Recordings run through tape, simultaneously recording straight into Pro Tools, giving you the best of both worlds while saving time in the studio. Read about CLASP
This beautifully crafted studio perfectly captures sound in the live room and presents it truthfully in the control room, with a reflection-free zone design that holds the industry standard ±3dB variance throughout its frequency range.
A wide sweet spot, extending from the engineer seat to the listening couch, eliminates guesswork and wasted time during recording and mixing. This very neutral monitoring environment gives the perfect amount of natural ambiance, with the help of side wall diffsorber trapping and rear wall RPG Diffractal diffusors.
Nicely balanced acoustics in the live room create an organic sound with the help of a unique array of absorber and
RPG diffusers on the side walls, along with extensive bass trapping.
