Refurbished with a minimalist approach, featuring a selection of artwork and memorabilia from Nigel’s personal collection, Strongroom 2 brings offers an alternative aesthetic for those in search of a contemporary feel with greater environmental control.

Technical Specifications

Centered around a Dalcon console designed by Bill Putnam, and with the Strongroom-staple Boxer main monitors, the studio also offers Kii Audio, NS10 and Auratone nearfields and a selection of classic vintage synthesizers. The booth houses a Wendel & Lung upright piano with a clear line of sight to the mix position and exterior windows. An HD projector shines behind the mix position for mixing to picture, and optional coloured lighting with low-noise dimmers allow for full lighting customisation.

A 32 I/O Pro Tools HDX2 system with an exhaustive list of plugins runs tirelessly on a Mac Pro 6.1 dustbin or, for the analogue fans, a 3M 24-track tape machine and oodles of classic compressors. Outboard effects include AMS, Eventide, Roland and a stunning stereo EMT 140 plate reverb.
