Non Technical Guide:-
There is a great vibe in Richmond Studios, it is a very
relaxed yet efficient place to work. The live room can
accomodate upto 14 string players. Check out De Jimbe's
page for other live recording techniques!
As well as a great live sound, the studio is also excellent
for sequencing work, and preferably a mixture of both.
The studio has 2 recording systems both allowing 32 tracks of recording.
The newer system is based around the digi O2 running ProToos. This is digitally linked to the Yamaha 02R desk which has 40 inputs (16 digital and 24 analogue) with dynamics on every channel.
The old sytem has 2 digidesignn 888 Running Opcode Studio Vision, Pro-tools and an array of samplers / synths / hard disk
A very flexible, totally recallable record / mix studio has been implemented.
All hard disk recording is backed up to dvd or DataDat / Exabyte tape.
