The Wilson Room

The Wilson Room is the largest control room at Pentavarit. It is equally suited for full tracking sessions, mixing, overdubs, and vocals. A large complement of classic vintage and modern gear - including the amazing SSL 6032 E/G console - are at your disposal and ready to rock. This room is wired to The Tracking Room with plenty of tie lines, an 8 channel cue system, and cameras that display on a large TV. Additionally, there is a small booth behind the control room for simple overdubs, and another isolated space for use during tracking sessions.

Speaking of gear...
