The studio is an air-conditioned digital production suite, suited to MIDI programming and capable of recording musicians and singers in a seperate isolation booth. (restricted to one at a time for space reasons).
Centered around a Yamaha O2r digital desk (the standard desk for digital production for many years now) it utilises a high powered PC system for mixing and mastering wich incorporates many features usually reserved for "high end" city centre studios.
The biggest asset to the studio is the dual UAD-1 powered plugins cards, which is dedicated music processing hardware and equivalent to around 8 Apple Mac G4's running simultaniously!
These cards allow GPSmusic to produce a finished sound to rival the 'big' studios, polished and ready for broadcast.
