Welcome to Final Track Studios. We're glad you're here! It has been quite a year with many clients and over 100 recording projects. The new studio space has turned out to be better than we thought. We added a new Control Surface to operate our hybrid analog/digital facility. The Control Surface is an Avid C-24 and we had such good success with the C 24 that we added 16 channels of the top of the line Avid Pre. The Control Surface supports up to 256 channels on mix. If you want to stay in the analog world for your project, we are the best place to be. In addition to the Avid Pre's we added a Focusrite ISA 2. Designed by Rupert Neve, these Pre Amps are the amazing pre amp he designed for George Martin (the Beatles Producer, used in all of his studios) and talk to a Vintage dbx 162 SL analog Compressor/Limiter These beautiful analog class 'A' units talk to our Black Lion A2D converter (to convert the analog signals to digital information) that then talk to our Universal Audio Apollo interface via aes/ebu.
We now have six rooms, each dedicated to a specific audio function. We took the opportunity in the design phase to be sure we had studied the current state of the industry and made certain that we would be offering exactly what the client of the future needs. Acoustically we have created a purpose build group of spaces that work wonderfully well together or separately. Built to be a studio not a space 'made into a studio' , every inch has a purpose. The Main Room, Vocal Booth, Percussion Room, Guitar Amp Room and the Control Room all have mic inputs and headphone feeds. Final Track Studios is a dedicated Pro Tools studio and we stay current with the latest versions Avid has to offer. (Currently we are at 12.5.2) We still believe that the best 'front end' for any music studio is analog and we support our clients with the new Audient and Focusrite Mic Pre's. Big, Fat and Fluffy - very musical are just a few of the comments we get! We will stick with this setup until our search for 'the perfect sound' locates something better, that elusive something ... the sound we remember from so many great records - The sound of analog.
