...BLUE MOON LATEST UPGRADE...

Apart from the installation of a brand-new new Digi 003Rack interface and a Command 8 control surface for Pro Tools 9 running on an equally brand-new Mac Pro 8-processor computer, we are very proud to announce the inclusion of the superb AMS Neve 1073DPD dual pre-amplifier. Not only does this unit deliver the legendary Neve 1073 sound, but also it's digital outputs provide superior A/D conversion and rock-solid industry standard BNC Word Clock for Pro Tools.

In addition, we can now offer guitarists and bassists the option of recording their tracks in conjunction with NI's fabulous Guitar Rig 4 Pro Kontrol and IK's Ampeg SVX amp systems (that's if you want to use them, of course, it's entirely up to you, and you can always bring your own favourite amp setups if you prefer to use them instead, or, if you're feeling a little more adventurous, perhaps you might even like to try a combination of both in order to achieve some classic re-amping scenarios - the choice is yours).

The latest newcomer to the studio's already well-stocked microphone stable is a true thoroughbred, the outstanding AKG C414B-XLS multi-pattern condenser, a brilliant all-rounder for using on vocals, acoustic instruments, brass, piano, electric guitar, drums, washboard, didgeridoo, temporal anomalies...you name it, it'll capture ANY source material with one of the finest responses that you will ever hear!

For the discerning keyboard person, we have just installed NI's wonderful Steinway D acoustic piano samples on Kontakt Player. and, for lovers of vintage analogue tone control, we can now provide you with Softube's astonishing Trident A-Range channel e.q. plug-in, IK's brilliant emulation of the historic Pultec valve equalisers, alongside their latest T-Racks 3 Classic EQ modules, so...enjoy!

...STOP PRESS...THE INCREDIBLE NEW LEXICON PCM NATIVE REVERB PLUG-IN SOFTWARE IS NOW ON BOARD, AND, SO FAR, THE REACTION FROM EVERYONE WHO HAS HEARD THIS AMAZING SYSTEM IS ..."WOW...IT SOUNDS FANTASTIC!"
(and we think so, too!)
