Console & Listening Area

The heart of the studio is here. This is where you can listen to what has or is being tracked. It's just a few steps away from from the live room. Instant feedback and response time to change is one of the most important parts of recording. With our open room philosophy, change can be dynamic and conversations can happen without the need for additional monitoring or headphones which can sometimes block the dynamic coversations that need to happen in a studio environment.
