Rare 1985 Vintage Neotek Elite Console
It’s not everyday we get the opportunity to invest in an iconic, legendary, heritage mixing console like this one! This Californian console was built in 1985 by a company called Neotek and shipped to the UK, we’re not sure at what point but we can announce it was previously owned by Elton John’s Rocket Man Studio for a fair few years. In 2019 we made the leap to take ownership of the desk from The Park Studios in Brighton.
The console includes 32 Class A microphone pre amps, American desk EQs and insert points which enables ultimate tracking flexibility when in the creative process. All routed through the central TT Patch Bays enabling Pro Tools Recording/Recall, Multiple Room sends/returns and flexibility at any point of the signal path.
The Isolation Booth
Sound Isolation For Complete Control
What is a recording studio without a sound isolating booth? Our studio I isolation booth has been designed for complete deadening of any sound source. Perfect for Vocals, Amps or Small Acoustic Instruments our booth captures the source eliminating any standing waves within the room.
The booth includes 8 neutrik balanced microphone sends and 4 returns, no expense spared.
PTHD Native System
We have installed a 16X16 analogue Pro Tools Native System which when paired with Pro Tools Ultimate enables us to record up to 96 tracks at 192khz! An industry leading AD/DA system.
