My first studio, c.1978. Note the cigarettes on console! Upgrade to a TAC Scorpion. Note dual half-inch machines for copies and edits and early NS-10’s. Early 80’s MIDI! We redesign and swap the control room and the studio, c. 1988. Note Sony / MCI multitrack (sounded great!) and Macintosh computer. The SSL installed! Note Texture sequencer on the IBM Computer (left). We upgrade the SSL from 40 to 48 channels. Will they ever be able to put this thing back together?? Note Sony DASH Digital machine. Yes! The upgrade to 48 channels completed. If you look carefully, you can see that the Sony digital machine was junked for an Otari MTR90, a major improvement. My first studio in Manhattan , 1996, at the Film Center on Ninth Avenue. A new G+ SSL console, dual Studer A827’s and an Otari MTR-12 half-inch were the hot setup. The first studio on 42nd Street , c.1999. The room was big enough for 70 musicians and the custom Hot House monitors were bangin! Live room from first studio on 42nd Street. When the studio across the hall from us on 42nd Street closed, we took it over and installed the SSL 9000, c. 2000. This studio had a great live room for recording live music and my favorite tape machines, Studer A800’s Live room from above studio. Note faux speakers above control room window.
