Studio B

Cozy, comfortable, and perfect for record-making. This room is a Westlake Compression Room design and is connected to The Tracking Room (so is Studio A). Perfect for producers, bands, and writers who need a large assortment of instruments with plenty of mics and outboard gear, but don't need to record large groups at the same time. Line-of-sight to the main tracking floor and the two booths makes Studio B very intimate, efficient, and productive.

Console

1979 Trident Trimix/Series 70 - 18 channels of classic British mic preamps and EQ. The mic preamps are identical to those on the famous Trident Series 80B desks from the same era. The EQ is also the same design, with two fully sweepable mid bands, but with fixed 100Hz shelf on the bottom and 10kHz shelf on top. This desk is in top condition, and sounds AMAZING. Modified and maintained by Vince Fast.
