Just finished a tour here. Couple of things need to be set straight. They claim that their console is way better than SSL or Neve. A 25 year old Otari console? No way. It never had a reputation for great sound. Sound is very pedestrian. They claim $12K tube mics that they built. When was an Apex mod mic worth that? Maybe $300. Throw your Neumans away? Wow that tells it all. They claim to build their own mic pres and that they are way better than anything else out there. Since when was a cheap kit mic pre better than tried and industry proven units like Neve, API or Manley? They claim their console's pre's are better than what's out there. Again no, not that console. Then they claim better AD-DA converters then AVID. Since when is a RME UFX and Ferrofish better than AVID 192s? Then they claim that their control room won some "award" for accuracy. Just bring in some material you know and listen. Very light in the low end. Big hole in the low mids. Not even close to accurate. Lots of horn coloration. Can't imagine mixing in there. Seems like they have not kept up with the times and equipment. No way to get a modern sound here. Analog machines not kept up in working shape so your stuck with an aging PT system on a G5. My home studio is better equipt and more accurate!
