Angel Recording Studios (London) has purchased a Euphonix System 5 digital mixing console for recording and mixing music for film and television in its three studios.
The complex, which was originally a United Reform Church, still houses an 1888 Speechley pipe organ and has retained a set of Victorian choir stalls. By adding the Euphonix System 5 in Studio 2, Angel will have a fully digital console to add to their existing analog range. Gary Thomas, senior engineer, commented, “The System 5 control surface was very comfortable from the start. The more we looked into the desk, the more inspired we became. The System 5 really lends itself to a fresh approach to music mixing and recording."

Euphonix sales manager Mark Hosking stated, “Angel was looking for a versatile and powerful digital desk to not only take care of the mixing, but to also handle the overflow from their other rooms when required. The System 5 is both a sonically excellent and very creative console and this sale confirms Euphonix’s growing reputation as the Number One choice in large-format digital consoles.”
