As well as a selection of legendary microphones to choose from we also have some of the best digital pre amps around.

A brand new addition to the s9fifty control room is ‘Steven Slate’s RAVEN 2.0 MTi’, which is a 27” multi-touch console and DAW controller and also works seamlessly in conjunction the brand new Pro Tools 11 software that we are currently running in the studio. Not only does it allow instant real time control of all the parameters within our DAW, it also adds more efficiency to the workflow with its user-customized batch commands. The innovative multi-touch control surface is the first of it’s kind and consequently heralds the arrival of a new age in hands on digital audio mixing.

Behind the desk, we have installed another exciting piece of hardware, the ‘Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56’ pre-amp. This is a state of the art, rack mounted signal processor incorporating 2 liquid pre-amps in addition which have the capability of emulating some of the greatest analogue mixing desks of all time.

The installation of this powerful, new digital audio platform is therefore great for our engineers. However, more importantly it will allow our clients to find the sound they are looking for in the most time efficient way possible.

Whether it’s vintage analogue or modern digital, ‘that sound’ is now only a ‘touch’ away.
