Studio 3

About Studio 3

Studio Three features the classic Trident 80B Limited Edition 56-input analog recording desk. This studio is a true multi-format environment with the ability to wire-up either a vintage two-inch, 24-track analog tape machine or other full-featured Digidesign Pro Tools®|HD3 system. A host of classic outboard gear combined with the Trident’s wonderfully warm and musical microphone preamps and EQ s provide a natural analog sound with the convenience of digital recording technology to back it up. Studio Three is also wired to Studio D for “big room sound” tracking sessions.
