These pictures show Pete and Blake discussing the new 'Babbey Road' console


Great Linford Manor is about an hours drive from central London, near Milton Keynes.  The building is very grand and impressive, yet friendly and warm in character and is very old, c1700. The studio area used to be a ball-room, so it was designed as a room for musicians in the first place and the sound of the recording area is fantastic, and following its massive changes to the control room, make the studio a great choice for anyone that uses real instruments.


great linford manor studiosPete Winkelman, Great Linford's owner, has recently shipped his old classic console to an American collector in L.A.  and in its place, Pete's installed a VRL which he's imported from Japan.  The hot news though is that in addition to the Neve, a classic EMI console from Abbey Road (vintage 1972) has been wired up to the main console to offer a mix of recording qualities.  The console first started life recording Pink Floyd's 'Wish you were here' album!


The studio, like all British residential's, has a great atmosphere.  New producer interviews are being filmed at the studio, so pop to the bottom of the page to choose....


Err, who is that Blake guy?


Well, possibly one of the most talented Neve tech's alive, well, he's completely mad really!
