Studios at MSR
MSR Studios consists of three studios, each with its own lounge area.
Studio A is MSR Studios’ largest tracking room. The control room is fitted with a 72-input SSL J Series console, a custom Augsperger main monitoring system with custom Leigh Audio Design dual 18″ subwoofers, and twenty four Neve 1081 mic pre/eq modules. A 9″ Yamaha Concert Grand piano, four isolation booths, and a large main recording space make MSR Studio A the perfect choice for any tracking situation. Also available upon request is the Endless Analog CLASP system, which allows for seamless integration of a 24 track analog tape front end to Pro Tools.
Centered around a Euphonix System 5 console with EuCon software allowing for DAW control, Studio B is MSR’s digital mixing/tracking room. The System 5′s ability to handle high track counts on a small footprint make Studio B a great room for film score and Broadway cast album mixes and the 800 square foot live room (which features a Yamaha C7 piano) can comfortably accommodate any small tracking session.
Studio C is MSR Studios’ premier mix room, hosting a 72 input SSL J series console, custom Augsperger mains, custom Leigh Audio Design dual 18″ subwoofer, and a wide array of outboard equipment including eight Neve 1081 mic pre/eq modules. A dedicated machine room allows for the quiet critical-listening environment necessary for accurate mixing. Studio C, which houses a Yamaha C7 piano, is also convenient for small format tracking such as vocals or overdubs.
