The Studio

Red Room Audio consists of a large soundproof and acoustically treated recording room and a fully featured control room. The recording room features different fixed reflective surfaces (wood, brick, carpet) along with moveable 1 and 2 dimensional diffusers, and mid/high frequency absorbers. These features combine to provide a high degree of tune-ability to the room. Simply put – this room can sound large and live, or tight and intimate.

The control room houses a comprehensive selection of both digital and analog recording equipment. The centre piece of this room is the Sountracs PC Series 24 Channel In-Line Analog Studio Console. This mixing desk features highly detailed discrete microphone preamps, powerful and precise vintage EQ, super smooth ALPS faders, 16 output busses, and computer controlled mute automation.

The warmth and musicality of this console combined with the sonic clarity and flexibility of Protools makes for a powerful combination.
