Mixing Up a Storm
Custom Built Oram T Series 24
The console at the centre of the Crown Lane sound is the handbuilt Oram T series 24. This is a British made sound console by John Oram, the ‘father of British EQ’. Many people track their material here because of the wonderful sound of the rooms through the Oram, and as a result, this unique sound is featured on thousands of recordings over the past decade.
How to describe the sound? Rich, warm and expensive sounding (!) Analogue is favoured by purists and digital by progressives, so we’ve combined the two by having the absolute best analogue console, immediately converted to digital by the highest spec’d Universal Audio converters we could find so that we can operate in today’s digital world easily without interruption. This is immediately viewed within our DAW of choice, Pro Tools.
Uniquely, the Oram mixer also controls your headphone mixes; the sound from Room 2 and Room 3; the feed from the amplifier cellar as well as the expected input channels from the live room. It has an accurate metre bridge, so we can monitor all rooms, and all sends at all times without being distracted from your music.
We can’t wait to hear your music take shape through the desk.
