SERVING SOUTHBURY & GREATER NEW HAVEN

Studio19 Records is a state-of-the-art recording and mixing studio employing the best analog and digital equipment. The room is professionally treated for the best possible acoustics.

Console

SSL XL-DESK – 24 into 8 analog consoles with VHD mic preamps. The desk employs the legendary SSL Stereo G Bus Compressor that glues all mixes perfectly.

Analog Compressors

Universal Audio LA-2A, UA 1176 (2), Empirical Labs Distressor EL8-X (2), Tube-Tech CL-1B, DBX 160X (2), Elysia mpressor (2), Elysia xpressor, Retro 176, UA 6176, and Neve 33609
 

Dynamics

SSL X-Rack with dynamics modules. Amazing on drums, but used on anything, these modules make the sound of your recorded drums come to life. It adds punch and control to the sound of not only all your percussion instruments but guitars and keyboards too.

Studio Monitors

The top of the line Amphion Two18 along with the BaseTwo25 subs are our studio monitoring system of choice. These speakers are also calibrated using SonarWorks Reference 4 which brings the room to an overall flat frequency, allowing for excellent mixing translation. ATC SCM25s are then used to surgically analyze the mid and low-mid frequencies for a radio-ready mix!

Mix Bus

Studio19 Records was one of the first facilities to install the latest unit from Solid State Logic: the FUSION. The unit adds low-end, sparkle, clarity and definition to any mix. Amazing! Also used during the final mix, Chandler Curve Bender bring your songs to perfection by adding or cutting specific frequencies. Lastly, the Chandler ZENER adds incredible foundation making your song radio ready!

Interfaces

UA 2192 and UA Apollo x16s (2). The UA 2192 is the converter of choice for our mix bus and it’s our Master WORD clock while the latest units from UA, the Apollo x16s are used in the AD DA conversion to/from our analog SSL Desk, a perfect fit for our studio.
