Studio A is a sound-proofed room, popular for mixing, recording, song writing, composing/arranging, film scoring, video post production and critical listening, as well as small-scale rehearsals and recording sessions. It is a light and peaceful room with outstanding monitors, and acoustics that are optimal for listening.
A wide range of professional equipment makes very satisfying setups possible in many different situations.
“A” is for “analog”, signifying the importance of having a good analog signal chain and A/D converters available, which is core to the concept. Since 2023 we no longer provide an analog studio mixer as standard, although options are available. Prioritising great converters and world class monitors (Genelec 8361A SAM). The standard configuration also features a 25-fader Icon control surface with comprehensive features that integrate easily with most common DAW’s.
There are 32 analog lines between Studio A & B, plus 24 between the dry room and Studio A. 16 quality preamps are provided by two rack-mounted Audient ASP800’s, and 4 more on the RME Fireface UFX II soundcard. A stereo VCA bus compressor, and two linkable optical compressors can be patched into the signal chain in various ways.
There are also SDI lines and several CAT 6 network lines between all rooms in the AV lab. These cables enable a huge amount of potential for advanced collaboration and sophisticated production/recording and live streaming.
The current Mac driver for the RME soundcard can be found here.
The Icon control surface does NOT require a driver as it uses the Mackie Control/HUI protocols that are integrated as standard with most DAW’s.
Studio B is a large sound-proofed room with a great PA and audio equipment for projects of many different sizes, where sound is critical.
It is a popular room for pre-production/music rehearsals, as well as performing arts projects, sonic art projects and other interdisciplinary productions. It is also used to host intimate concerts and events which can easily be live streamed using Wrap’s sophisticated streaming equipment.
A large door to the car park makes it easy to get big instruments and equipment in and out, as well as giving instant access to sunlight (when that is available).
Our Allen & Heath Dlive C2500 gives you a hugely flexible, industry-leading mixing interface that communicates noiselessly (no fan) with our CDM48 mix rack and Lab D series 120:4 amplifier, which are both patched to wall-mounted panels from an insulated technical room.
In large-scale recording or live streaming situations, Studio B can be used in conjunction with Studio A, with video and talkback communication in addition to 32 lines of XLR for analog audio.
Mobile acoustic treatments can be configured to suit different physical setups and acoustic demands, enabling an emphasis on absorption or diffusion down to low-mid frequencies.
This is a large dry room, big enough to record a large drum kit or a group of people seated around a table. The “dry” acoustics (with virtually no reverb) are perfect for recording very clear professional podcasts, song and other vocal material, as well as drums and other instruments where you want a very precise clear sound. Many producers and recording engineers like to record in a dry room, and to add reverb effects during the mixing process. There are 24 lines of analog XLR between this room and Studio A, as well as SDI and network kables for patching video and other devices (for talk back etc.) so communication between the Dry Room and the rest of the AV Lab can be made very easy!
