Newport Beach, CA (December 7, 2010)–JEL Recording Studios in Newport Beach, CA recently installed a Solid State Logic AWS 900 in Studio A.
“We provide recording services in Studio A for music productions ranging from rhythm sections to orchestras for commercials, regular release movies, television programs, video games and music projects,” explains Edo Guidotti, partner in JEL Studios and president of Pacific Coast Presentations. Studio clients range from Disney, Universal and Warner Bros, to AT&T, Blizzard Entertainment for the popular videogame World of Warcraft and the punk band Green Day.
Guidotti produces, orchestrates and contracts music for Pacific Coast Presentations, a full-service music production company specializing in music tracks for film, commercials, video games and stage show presentations of all types. “We needed to accomplish large production recording projects with highly-efficient workflow and we found that doing everything in-the-box with a controller and outboard mic pres didn’t provide the efficiencies we had hoped for. The AWS 900+ SE, through its bussing structure, integrated DAW control for our Pro Tools|HD3 system and its clear and logical layout, is the exact tool we needed to move forward.”
JEL Recording Studios has been in business for over 30 years, recording many award-winning soundtracks. Guidotti attributes this success to acoustic design and talented engineers coupled with continual equipment upgrades. “In the past with the controller, we relied on our high-end outboard mic pres to deliver the sound quality our clients have come to expect from JEL,” says Guidotti. “Now that we have the AWS 900+ SE, all our recording sessions begin with SSL’s industry standard SuperAnalogue sound right from the console. This is an incredible time-saver because we are not constantly patching in outboard gear. With the AWS, our API, Avalon, Chandler and Millennia mic pres are now used to further craft a specific sound or provide a particular color.”
