Large analog console with a beautiful tracking space

Studio A, our flagship studio, featuring a beautiful, spacious, and inspiring tracking space and two large isolation booths. At the heart of the control room, a Rupert Neve Designs 5088 32 Channel Analog Mixing Console, brings all of the sonic bliss an artist could dream of.

The ability to track large sessions, with up to 64 inputs into our Avid Pro Tools MTRX converters, gives this space the ultimate flexibility.

Our large selection of backline, including a Yamaha C7 Grand Piano, Hammond B3, huge array of drums and cymbals, amps from Fender, Diezel, Soldano, Friedman and many more, allow for you to find inspiration in our space.

Studio A is also where we host our popular Master Classes. Attendees can fit comfortably in our spacious control room, get a view of what’s happening both in the recording space and on-screen with the aid of a large projector setup, and learn how to record different types of music from award-winning professionals during a live recording session.

The Rupert Neve 5088

The 32-input console, fully-loaded with Rupert Neve Designs 5052 Mic Preamp & Inductor EQ and 5051 Inductor EQ & Compressor modules, brings high-end analog sound and hands-on control to the recording experience — elements that have been signatures of Sweetwater Studios’ artist-focused workflow since its inception.
