The Red Room London is one of London's top mixing studios. The studio is a new partnership between Swiss mix engineer Philippe Weiss and Miloco. In November 2015 the control room was refurbished and an updated SSL 56 channel G+ Series Console with Ultimation and total recall was added. The room has been built and equipped to create one of the best sounding mix rooms in the country and the equipment spec certainly delivers. The console is in excellent condition and each channel has been modified with black gate capacitors to deliver the highest quality signal chain. The desk comes loaded with 24 E-Series EQs and 32 G-Series EQs. Engineers can either print the mix through the conventional mix post point or from the pre-VCA fader point and into the carefully constructed 'Mix Print' chain.
The much celebrated monitoring system consists of customised Munro M4s running off chevin amplification and are regularly checked and calibrated by acoustician Nick Whitaker. We also offer a wide range of nearfield monitors including Barefoot MicroMain 27's, Yamaha NS10's, Adam S3A's, Dynaudio BM15's and Genelec 1031's running off a choice of Bryston, Yamaha or Quad amps. All of the monitoring is controlled through a Cranesong Avocet monitor controller. We believe it all adds up to one of the most accurate monitoring environments in London. At the end of 2015 / early 2016 we shall be making the monitoring system even better with the addition of some Augspurger Duo-15 main monitors which will come with dual 18" subs.
The Pro Tools HDX rig offers 24 inputs and 48 outputs, using Avid HD I/Os as convertors or (upon request Apogee convertors) and it comes maxed out with plug ins and a UAD-2 card (with all the UAD plug-ins) running on Pro Tools 10 or 11.
The extensive outboard has been completely updated and contains many of the toys you'd expect in a world class mix room as well as some great new additions. In addition to the Massenberg, Tubetech, Pultecs, EAR and Urei names, we have recently added some of the best newcomers, including Empirical Labs, Manley, and EMI Chandler. We also offer some more unusual and vintage effects such as the Moog 12 Stage Phaser, the Marshall Time Modulator not to mention a vintage EMT plate reverb, two EMT digital reverbs and an AKG digital reverb.
In recent years the studio has delivered three UK number one albums: Lana Del Ray's Born To Die, Keane's Strangeland and Plan B's The Defamation of Strickland Banks. Over the years it has mixed numerous other hit records including Oasis' What's The Story Morning Glory and Be Here Now, all the Chemical Brothers albums, Slipknot's 2008 number one US album All Hope Is Gone, plus other successful albums by Wild Beasts, Foals, The Enemy, Villagers and Everything Everything.
