Studio B

Image gallery and description – studio B

A powerful creative space

Studio B is a highly productive space located adjacent to the main SSL studio. The control room has ample space for a band to relax whilst the performer is hard at work. The recording room has been treated for pristine recording of vocals, solo instruments, percussion and amps with immediate line of sight to the engineer.

The gear in Studio B merges the convenience of in-the-box and the benefits of console mixing, with a combination of an Avid Icon console, extensive software plug-in library and a collection of classic outboard hardware. The studio has been designed for ultimate speed and efficiency of workflow with all the facilities in place allowing the focus to be on the music, unhampered by technological limitations.
