Grey Room

Location: Houston

When you walk into the Grey Room, the first thing you notice is the massive console at the front of this beautiful, acoustically balanced studio. The 152-input Solid State Logic G+ mixing console is responsible for over 79% of Billboard Magazine’s top 100 hits. The G+ console sets the industry bar for sonic quality and routing flexibility. Every input of the G+ console features a discrete microphone amplifier, followed by a powerful compressor/limiter that also features an expander/gate. This “processing” is followed by the renowned Solid State Logic equalizer. Every other manufacturer compares their designs to Solid State Logic. Looking through the glass gives the engineer a view of the spacious tracking room, complete with a Yamaha Conservatory Collection Grand Piano sitting next to a vintage Hammond B3 Organ with twin Leslie 122 speakers. The Grey Room features analog and digital recording via 2 Otari MTR-90 analog multi-track recorders, alongside a Pro Tools HD3 Accel digital audio workstation. With over 20 platinum records recorded in this equipment-packed room, your learning possibilities can be virtually limitless.
