Studio Winery is not only a winery, not only an art or live music venue, we are also a top notch recording studio as well. Every room, including our warehouse & wine production area, have beautiful sonic value and contribute 16 channels of pristine musical sound to the control room, AKA our “recording lounge”. The lounge has amenities that the general public can enjoy including comfy club chairs, sofas and recliners. There are games, magazines and books to read if you forgot your laptop. Or you can log in, dig in to some cheese & crackers, and enjoy a bottle of wine all while "working from home".
In the recording lounge, you will find the heart of the studio. The rare & classic 1978 Allen & Heath Syncon A. This is one of the highest fidelity and most musical sounding mixing consoles that has ever been produced. These are the very 56 channels that recorded and mixed, the 1991 platinum Spin Doctors album "Pocketful of Kryptonite". It’s an all discrete mixer, meaning that there are zero integrated circuits - a big plus for fidelity. The multi-platinum 1983 Police album "Synchronicity II" was also recorded and mixed on the A&H Syncon A. Rupert Neve has been hailed as the father of the best sounding audio mixers in the world. Many top recording engineers have dubbed this model the "Baby Neve".
Our audio recording philosophy is two-fold. We provide both value driven digital audio recording via the Pro Tools realm with all the trimmings, but also ultra high fidelity true analog facilities loaded with classic equipment with that "warm as an old sweater" sound that is only covetously emulated in the digital realm. Imagine the sound that 30 tracks, on 2 inches of tape, can not only capture, but reproduce - faithfully. Imagine using the same classic microphones and delicious outboard toys as George Martin used on the Beatles, or Alan Parsons used on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. All the equipment in the studio has been restored to ultra high quality specifications.
Digital is fast. Digital is convenient.
Analog is warm. Analog is smooth.
