Star Clients Rave About the Results
CLEVELAND, OH â€“ Paper Street Recording Studios, formerly Galahad Recording Studios, upgraded its original Studio A with a Solid State Logic AWS 900+ SE console, much to the delight of a client base that includes Hard Rock and Metal artists such as Grammy nominated Lamb of God, Gene â€œThe Atomic Clockâ€? Hogland â€“ the drummer for Fear Factory and the Metalocalypse cartoon group Dethklok, and Platinum certified Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs-and-Harmony. The AWS 900+ SE replaced a DAW controller, instantly delivering the signature SSL SuperAnalogueâ„¢ sound and streamlined production thanks to improved DAW control. The uptick in business which has resulted has prompted a move into a new studio space and change of name.
â€œWorking with a controller as a console simply wasnâ€™t getting the job done for us,â€? says Patrick Lally, co-owner of Paper Street Recording Studios with Jason Popson. â€œWhen the opportunity came along for the SSL AWS 900+ SE, we jumped on it. We were using SSL 9000K channel strips, so we were very familiar with the great sound, so having a full console with this sound and power was amazing for our engineers and clients. Prior to the AWS 900+ SE, we all noticed that we had the â€˜I wish it would do thisâ€™ concern with our controller/Pro ToolsÂ® set up. Since installing the AWS, that wish factor has been fulfilled. The AWS 900+ SE can do everything and the clients know it. We are always good to go for any session.â€?
With the AWS 900+ SE in place and business growing, Paper Street has moved into a larger facility to meet increased client demand. Pivotal to this growth, the AWS 900+ SE provided Paper Street â€œwith a sound that sells itself,â€? says studio co-owner Jason Popson. â€œWhen we bring in a client for the first time, we sit them down and pull up whatever we have been working on and they are sold on the sound. They like the fact that this is the latest SSL technology. There is a very big trust factor in the industry for SSL consoles.â€?
Says Paper Street engineer Tom Shaffner, â€œWe have been using the AWS for a while now and we have had zero problems. No hang ups, no issues. Probably my favorite thing is when I have a drummer in the room warming up. While I craft his/her sound, Iâ€™ll hit record and take a minute or two of the performance. When invited in to listen, you can see by the look on their faces that they are very happy. The AWS has been an awesome addition to Paper Street and this tradition will carry over into the new facility.â€?
