An SSL4056 G-Series console previously located in Olympic Studio 2 has been refurbished and installed in London facility The Engine Room. The desk has been loaded with 48 mono channels and eight stereo channels, while an 8 core Intel Pro Tools HD rig offers 24 inputs and 48 outputs, as well as featuring an extensive array of plug-ins running on Pro Tools 8 or 7.4.

The monitoring system consists of customised Munro M4s running off Chevin amplifiers, with the near-field monitoring selection including Yamaha NS10s, Adam S3As, Dynaudio BM15s and Genelec 1031s, powered by a choice of Bryston, Yamaha or Quad amps.

Outboard inventory includes gear from Massenburg, Tubetech, EAR, Summit, Urei, Empirical Labs, Manley and EMI Chandler, along with more unusual effects such as the Moog 12 Stage Phaser.
