Friend and supporter of the site, HHB, have been busy supplying The Backstage Centre with the audio equipment for a new, state-of-the-art, 48-channel recording studio.
Located just outside of London in Purfleet, The Backstage Centre offers a fully-equipped space for all types of production rehearsal and training requirements; from large-scale theatre and opera to arena-scale band rehearsals and recording facilities.
The new recording studio is centred around a 48-channel Audient 8024 analogue console with 48 bus modification and integral patchbay, and a Pro Tools HDX system with 48 analogue I/O. It also features a 4-fader Avid Artist Control touchscreen control surface, industry-standard outboard gear from Universal Audio, Thermionic Culture, DBX and TC Electronic, plus Mogami professional audio cables and Genelec loudspeakers, all supplied and installed by HHB’s sales and technical team.
Once the equipment was installed, leading acoustician Andy Munro was employed to put the finishing touches to the studio’s acoustics.
The Centre’s Technical Co-ordinator Jonathan Roberts said:
“HHB were very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process, and within two days of the console being delivered we had a fully functioning, professional recording studio.”
HHB International Sales Manager Matthew Fletcher comments:
“We are very happy to have worked with The Backstage Centre in providing professional recording equipment that fits their requirements and budget. Robin Millar’s expertise, combined with the contributions of Andy Munro and the services and equipment supplied by HHB have made the Backstage Centre a world-class facility.”
