Very nice console, but the computer screen completely kills the aesthetic vibe for me. Can't believe I'm the first on this thread to point this out...................

Wow! I thought the console was impressive, but then I saw your site. Your facility and it's location are really stunning. It looks like an inspiring place to work and make music. Congratulations! You've built my dream studio!

I think the same, but it is Zeppelins console, so it's their conscious decision...

Were you expecting the studio to be a 1970's time capsule?

I like having the screen there. Although I'd perhaps mount it on a VESA mount/arm for aesthetic reasons.

I think this was kind of a adapt or die situation.
We do a bit of jazz and old school live recording sessions were you use Pro Tools more like a multitrack recorder. But a lot of our projects are heavily based around Pro Tools. So I decided it would make good sense to install a screen/keyboard bucket and get the ergonomics right from the get-go.

I see the PT-screens are sneaking it's way closer and closer to the center section of a lot of analog console setups, with keyboards sitting on top of faders etc.

I can dig it................

I'm a bit of a die hard about the old school vintage aesthetic. My main studio set up doesn't really look like anything has happened in the room since 1978 and I love it that way. Recently we took out the computer so It's all analogue, but i realize we are weirdos and most people of sanity use PT and have embraced the hybrid................as I said, horses for courses.

Whatever, IT IS a beautiful console, congratulations, may she long serve you well...................

Yes they are.



IMO the two top consoles being built today are the Shelford Neve and the Wunderbar.

The Shelford looks lovely. I have no doubt it would sound that way too. Congratulations. You must be doing well, its always good to know people are persevering even in this music and economic climate.

I wonder that aobut the RND and the API Legacy consoles, as well.

Its a modern reality. Studios run around computers and DAWs.

Awesome setup and a beautiful console!

Very interesting reading about the thinking behind the instal and the routing setup - flexibility is an added bonus.

Regarding the comments about integration of the DAW and screen/keyboard setup, I think that's *the* thing that points to this being a rig for serious use, not just a paper cup holder. How else are you going to reach for faders while working in the digital realm that is the present reality. Very sensible and shows real thought about ergonomics in use, as well as a deep appreciation of high end sonics.
