The Booth (Fort Lauderdale)


Equipment List



At the heart of the studio is an  AVID Pro Tools HD system running Pro Tools Version 11. To provide the warmth and space that only an analog board can give, all Pro Tools outputs are routed separately through SSL’s acclaimed XLogic SuperAnalogue Summing Buss* providing outstanding depth and clarity of sound during tracking, mixdown and mastering.  Additionally, all mixes can be optionally passed through SSL’s renowned G-Series Master Buss Compressor for that “Radio Ready” touch. Outstanding D/A & A/D conversion  is handled by the Lynx Aurora 16.   The system is hosted by a blazing fast 12 core 2014 Mac Pro Desktop Computer with 32 gig of ram, and a spacious Apple Cinema Display.  For additional archiving the DROBO system is also employed.

Monitoring is performed with Genelec 1030A’s (with the matching by-passable Subwoofer), a pair of original Yamaha NS-10M’s, and Auratone Cubes.
