Studio Two is dedicated to tracking, editing, and mixing music. The 32-channel Rupert Neve 5088 console is the heart of the studio.
There are a few names in the industry that are synonymous with quality and many would put Rupert Neve at the top of the list. Rupert Neve is a personal recipient of a Technical Grammy Award, is in the Mix magazine “Hall of Fame”, and Studio Sound magazine named him “Man of the Century”. Often called the father of the modern audio console, his designs are sought after because of their master craftsmanship and sonic character.
The goal of the 5088 was to create a console with the absolute best possible audio performance, along with the long term reliability of my original designs. We spent years developing the high voltage circuitry and transformers that have improved the total dynamic range by over 10dB, and the resulting experience of listening to music through a 5088 is beyond anything I have previously witnessed. By adding SwiftMix to the 5088, you will be able to take full advantage of modern digital control, while maintaining an entirely analogue signal path, and thus not compromising the quality which we worked so hard to achieve.
Studio two has an expanded ProTools|HDX system including three Avid HD IO 16×16 audio interfaces.
Studio Two, Soundhouse C and ISO C are part of an area that we call the south suite. Soundhouse C and ISO C contain microphone, line level, cue send, video and CAT5 connections to Studio Two via patchbays integrated into the rack system adjacent to the Rupert Neve 5088. Studio Two also has tie lines to the NMR.
