The Bunker Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, N.Y., has taken delivery of a vintage Solid State Logic 4040 E recording console that was refurbished and installed by Sonic Circus. The console, which originally served in Sony’s Toronto studio, is now in service and replaces The Bunker’s Auditronics console, which now resides in The Bunker’s Studio B.
Since 1996, Sonic Circus has worked with recording studios, broadcast studios, live sound companies, and independent engineer/producers, providing equipment, technical design, and support for all aspects of audio production.
Sonic Circus technical director Steve Laisi refurbished the console in Sonic Circus’ shop in Harmonyville, Vt. Laisi also drove the console by truck to Brooklyn and installed it in The Bunker with Williamsburg tech John Charette.
Shortly before the installation, Bunker Studio owners, musician/engineers John Davis and Aaron Nevezie, travelled to the Sonic Cirus Vermont shop to see the refurbishment in progress.
David Lyons, Sonic Circus president, says, “It feels great for us to be a part of the exciting recording world that’s developing in Brooklyn—there’s so much music happening there.”
Sonic Circus refurbished and installed the Neve 5316 for Joel Hamilton’s Studio G, and also supplied the original API 1608 that Marc Alan Goodman recently expanded to 48 channels for his new Strange Weather studio.
