This video is taken from a handy-cam that one of the party gave us for use on the site and as can be seen, is not up to the levels of visual quality you'd normally expect... With luck, we will be invited in with our pro cameras to do a full story in the near future
During the Los Angeles AES, a contingent of British Studio people from studios such as Abbey Road, Air and the Townhouse, paid a visit to the fantastic Ocean Way Studios and they were impressed, very impressed!
The cast includes Colette Barber, Peter Cobin, Neil Aldridge, Tim Vinelott, Ian Davidson, Martin Benge and others from Abbey Road, Air and Townhouse.
Possibly one of the most 'atmospheric' studios we have visited yet, we knew we had walked in to something special the minute we walked through the door. Click here to check out Ocean Way's web site.
The quality of the rooms with attention to every detail is immediately apparent. The choice of outboard equipment and the microphone selection is mind bogglinly brilliant with some of the nicest examples of vintage mics we have seen anywhere. Even the Abbey Road guys were impressed.
Without doubt this is one of the finest recording studios anywhere on the planet. We hope to bring you a series of well shot video tours in a few months time.
In the meantime, we are pleased to bring this tourists eye studio 'fly on the wall' tour shot in October 2000.
Many thanks to the people at Ocean Way for allowing us to tour around!
