Recording and Studio
EMI Publishing - in the heart of London's West End - have recently installed a 48 channel TL Audio VTC console in Studio A, to accompany the existing 32 channel VTC that has been the heart of Studio B for the last 3 years.
Studio A - which runs both Logic 5 and a much-loved Otari MTR90 analogue machine - is used solely for EMI's own signed artists, and the newly installed VTC has been busy recording Beverley Knight, So Solid Crew and most recently Madness. Studio B's VTC was notably employed on Starsailor's debut album, with the first single `Fever' and a number of `B' sides being recorded solely on the mixer.
Studio Manager Mark Aubrey commented on the addition of the second console: "We've been very impressed with the VTC console in Studio B, and were getting such good results that it seemed logical to upgrade Studio A to a VTC as well. The console has such a `true' sound, and the mic preamps are fantastic - we very rarely have to employ any external preamps or EQ. It's simply a very solid piece of kit and does exactly what it says on the tin."
