Hollywood-based Skip Saylor Recording has expanded northward with its acquisition of Devonshire Studios (North Hollywood). The three-room facility, which has hosted the likes of Tom Petty, Roger Waters, Ozzy Osbourne, Nirvana and many others, has reopened as an all-SSL facility. (Currently, Studio 3 boasts an 80-input SSL G-Plus Series, and Studio 1 is fitted with an SSL Axiom-MT.)
While Saylor/Devonshire's studios have been cosmetically upgraded, little else was altered. “Most of the acoustics were excellent,” Saylor noted. “The monitoring is where we spent our time. Our goal is modern monitoring with classic acoustics. We want to upgrade and enhance while preserving what was good.”
