GForce Synth Studio.


Tucked away in a secret location, our Vintage Keyboard & Research Studio is also available to use by a few A-List producers, musicians and friends.

The studio is divided into synth 'stations',and each synth is plumbed into a rack-mounted line mixer. These line mixers have stereo A & B outputs which are fed into the Midas Desk which means that synths within the same station can have a mixture of outboard effects via the Midas Heritage busses.

The desk is then routed to the Apollo 8 interface and, in turn, a 2018 iMac. All monitoring is via the Adam P22A's and an Adam Sub-Bass.

Not everything on the list is held at the studio so if a prospective user has a particular request, let us know. Because of the nature of vintage analogue we cannot guarantee the full functionality of any instrument (it's a full time job keeping these babies running) unless we know beforehand that something is specifically required, in which case we'll make sure it's working 100%

The studio is available in isolation, or with an engineer, or engineer & synth programmer. Our engineer is highly experienced, presentable and diligent. The synth programmer would probably be me.
