In part one, studio manager Liam Watson told us all about his passion for recording stuff the old way. Well now we get to see just how he does that with the help of his ex-Abbey Road EMI REDD.
He also chats about recording the White Stripes 'Elephant' and the effect it's had on the day to day running of the studio.

Next week in the final part, we take a look at the live room and the backline attic space. Nice!

Absolutely fascinating!

I wonder what sort of clipping you'd get with a very hot signal running through a channel of that Abbey Road desk... It just looks so fantasic, with the massive old faders, chickenhead knobs, and mechanical VU meters (probably backlit by candles.)

It's like the control panel to some analog time machine and it fills me with powerful notions.

Nope, nothing at all, Shekhar. The closest we got to digital the whole day was a microwave oven that Liam used to warm up some lunch with. It was a heart warming experience. (er, the day out at Toerag, I mean, not the lunch!)

Even the dude has an "analog look", the hair style and things. Is he like that all the time really or just for the sonicstate show?. He FITS perfectly his studio...
