Sunderland, UK-based High Fidelity Studios’ (www.hifistudios.net) new, fully equipped pre-touring rehearsal suite features an Allen & Heath GL2800M monitor board, complementing the existing GL2400 FOH desk.
According to High Fidelity Studios’ managing director, David Dorn, “The suite offers bands the experience of a full-blown gig, providing quality equipment they would find at a top-line event. The space is set up like a venue, with a fully furnished stage, including drum risers, a valve backline and 32-channel monitor and FOH desks.”
Other gear available include a selection of mics from Sennheiser Evolution and Shure SM/Beta, and playback through MiniDisc, CD or MP3. Bands can have their session recorded to multitrack (up to 24 channels) and bounced to DVD; the facility can also take that recording and mix it.
