Studio 1

Studio 1 uses a hybrid setup, combining the tonal characteristics of analogue equipment with the flexibility and ease of digital recording technology.

At the heart of Studio 1 is a 1980s AMS Neve V-Series Sidecar. This desk began its life at the BBC before being purchased by Australian musician Billy Thorpe. Thorpe used this desk at his home recording studio. The desk then lived for over a decade at JR Recording Studios, recording many local Adelaide bands as well as famous Australian/ International touring artists, before making its way into Wundenberg’s Recording Studio. This desk sounds truly incredible and adds great musical character and warmth to all sound which passes through it.

For recording, the studio uses a Pro Tools HD system with a Control 24. An extensive plug-in list is also available (Sound Toys Bundle, Melodyne, Waves Plugins, Drumagog etc) along with an ever growing list of outboard gear (LA-2A, 2 x 1176, A-Designs Pacifica, 3 x Neve 1272, 4-710D, Neve 33609 etc.)
