It is a big honour for us to receive the ECMA Recording Studio of the Year award earlier this month and a giant Thank You goes out to all the artists who have made this such a wonderful place to work. We would like to join in with the celebration of Mo Kenney’s record “The Details,” which took home Solo Recording of the Year. Also sending congratulations to Joel Plaskett, who walked home with Songwriter of the Year honours. Click here for a list of all winners & nominees.
We’ve also been getting some new gear up and running here: a Peluso P49 microphone, a surprisingly smooth modern tube condenser microphone, modelled after the Neumann M49 of yesteryear; and a Studer A80 1/2″ 2-track tape machine, the crown jewel of analog hi-fi, and boy does it sound good! We just turned out our first mixes through the machine with Halifax’s Bend The River and we could not be more excited about the sound of the machine.
