Studio 2

About Studio 2

Very recently, most of the music you heard on the radio was likely mixed on Solid State Logic (SSL) consoles. Many of the world’s premiere studios still operate around these desks. A handful of the top mixing engineers simply will not work on anything else. Even more importantly, SSL’s flexible modular designs and features have been emulated by dozens of console manufacturers. This is why the SSL 4000G series console (a 4040G to be exact) is at the center of studio two, one of IPR’s two large-format analog rooms. The console is combined with a Pro Tools®|HD3 Accel rig with a multitude of high-definition I/O and 24 tracks of analog 2-inch to cover any input requirements. Add to that an impressive list of outboard gear including industry standard analog processing from API, Great River, Summit, UREI, and Empirical Labs and digital effects units from Eventide and Lexicon, you have an ideal tracking and mixing environment.
