About music studios 2-9 and workstations 4-6

The studios and workstations all run on Pro Tools Ultimate, Logic Pro and Ableton Live software. Five of the studios have a live room with guitar amp(s) and five-piece drum kit. The studios' complement of microphones allows for a range of recordings, while further specialist microphones can be borrowed from the media hatch. The workstations are single rooms with midi keyboard and mic connected to identical computer systems to those in the studios.

The systems are installed with a range of plug-ins from Sonnox, McDSP, Avid, Melodyne and Native Instruments. They run on Avid HDX cards through Avid HD I/O and HD OMNI interfaces, providing from two to 24 inputs via a range of mic pre amps (studios), with stereo monitoring via active Dynaudio BM15 speakers (studios) and BM6 speakers (workstations), with stereo headphone mixes back to the live rooms.

There are Avid Artist Mix control surfaces in the studios and a 24 fader large format Avid S6 surface in Studio 1.
