CONTROL ROOM

The Control Room is 35 square meters. It is acoustically treated and is streaming with sunlight. The center piece is the mixing console:  a  very modern Amek  Angela II + Supertrue automation.  Artists  can  choose  to  track  to  2"  analog tape on an Otari MTR80 II or directly to ProTools HD or on both in perfect synchronization thanks to Digidesign Sync. All cables are in the floor.Very comfortable behind the mixer is a large space that allows musicians to feel at home while recording at every stage of the production process. The control room is very cozy, especially during the winter season, and features views of the town's harbor.WiFi connection and parking right outside the control room are available as well.

La regia è di 35mq e gode di luce naturale e di un acustica molto controllata. Il pezzo centrale è il mixer: un modernissimo analogico Amek Angela II con automazione Supertrue. I musicisti possono scegliere di registrare 24 piste sul nastro analogico da 2" con Otari MTR80 II, o ProTools HD o su entrambi in perfetta sincronizzazione grazie al Digidesign Sync. Tutti i cablaggi sono sotto il pavimento.
Molto confortevole alle spalle del mixer un grande spazio che permette ai musicisti di sentirsi come a casa durante la registrazione ed in ogni fase del processo di produzione. La sala regia è molto accogliente soprattutto durante il passaggio della stagione invernale, godendo di un'ampia vista sul porto della città con splendidi tramonti. Connessione WiFi ultraveloce e comodo parcheggio di fronte alle vetrate della regia.

LIVE ROOM

This is our main live recording area and rehearsal room for bands not exceeding seven people playing at the same time. Reflective wooden floor and stone walls, three stained glasses that let in natural sun light, sound absorbing velvet ceilings and sound traps in the corners make up the acoustics of this 30sq meters natural sounding room. Beyond the control room window is a view of the sea which offers artists a quiet and highly creative environment. It also features two iso booths for vocals, amps or other instruments during busy live recording sessions. Air recirculation, air conditioning and heating complete the setup.

Questa è la nostra principale area di registrazione dal vivo e sala prove per formazioni non superiori alle sette persone. Pavimento riflettente in legno e pietra viva su alcune pareti, tre vetrate con luce naturale, soffitto in velluto assorbente e trappole sonore per gli angoli tutto in circa 30 mq dal suono acustico e naturale. Al di là del vetro regia la vista del mare che concede agli artisti un ambiente tranquillo ed altamente creativo. Dispone inoltre di due stand vocali con ampia vetrata per isolare gli amplificatori e/o i musicisti durante le sessioni dal vivo.
