Having refitted the original studio space in 2015 producer and artist Shoto Radcliffe once again turned to the Miloco Builds team for the next phase of his studio expansion.
Originally intended as a second live room the project evolved once it became clear how much additional space could be made available. Given Sholto’s workflow it was decided that a second control room could also be achieved and the complexities of the existing pillars yielded a really interesting scheme . The result is a great sounding live room , with booth and a good sized control room with superb ATC monitoring . Every now and again you design a room that you would love to own yourself and this is one of these.
As always, Miloco Gear were on hand to provide some equipment for the studio. Sholto went for an Avid HDX system with HD IO interface, running on a band new Mac Pro housed in a Sonnet chassis, a superb bit of kit that ca house the computer, PCIe cards and hard drives while providing USB and Thunderbolt connectivity for any peripherals, thus eliminating the thunderbolt spaghetti often required for pro setups with the latest Macs. In terms of outboard, he ordered a pair of Universal Audio 1176 compressors and an API 512C mic pre, which compliments the original 1962 EMI valve mic amps he already owned perfectly. Monitoring comes from ATC, and there’s a superb selection of instruments including Fender Start guitars, a Dave Smith Prophet ’08 synthesiser, and a Ludwig Hollywood drum kit.
