SRT's five studios are individually specialised to a certain
extent, each is set up to allow us to provide a range of services
- for example:
Studio 1 is our premier stereo mastering suite, where its
large comfortable listening space with natural daylight breaks
the mould of the usual small, dark room. Which makes it ideal
for the regular attended sessions that take place - whether
just one person, a five piece band (or even a class of students!).
Monitoring is provided by a B&W 801 20 Hz system which
is used to full advantage in the clear, unobstructed sound
stage (which is traditionally cluttered by consoles &
computer screens etc). Along with the industry standard monitoring,
studio 1 is equipped with a SADiE hard disc editor, Sony SDP
1000 (32 BIT DSP) and TC Electronics M 5000 (32 BIT DSP) for
day to day mastering work - ensuring the highest standards
of EQ, Dynamics processing and editing.
also offers outstanding services in the areas of re-mastering
and restoration, much of which has taken place in studio 1.
Audio can be transferred from 1/4" or 1/2" reel
(Studer A 80), vinyl and other high-end analogue equipment,
and converted to digital through 24 BIT A/D converters. Restoration
tools in studio 1 include Cedar, Sonic Solutions (for its
No Noise facility) and, of course, engineer skills - along
with regular mastering / editing equipment - to give unrivalled
To complement the impressive stereo mastering facilities,
studio 1 has recently been given a complete make-over to include
5.1 monitoring with full range front and rear speakers, and
a large 42" screen to make the room an exceptional environment
for auditioning one of SRT's many DVD / surround sound projects.
