EMI Publishing, in the heart of London’s West End, hasrecently installed a 48-channel TL Audio VTC console in Studio A, whichaccompanies an existing 32-channel VTC that has been in Studio B forthe past three years.
Studio A, which runs both Logic 5 and an Otari MTR90 analog machine,is used solely for EMI’s signed artists. The newly installed VTChas been busy recording Beverley Knight, So Solid Crew and, mostrecently, Madness. Studio B’s VTC was employed onStarsailor’s debut album, with the first single "Fever" and anumber of B sides recorded solely on the mixer.
Studio manager Mark Aubrey said, “We’ve been veryimpressed with the VTC console in Studio B, and were getting such goodresults that it seemed logical to upgrade Studio A to a VTC as well.The console has such a ‘true’ sound, and the mic preampsare fantastic, we very rarely have to employ any external preamps orEQ. It’s simply a very solid piece of kit and does exactly whatit says on the tin.”
