Wimberley, TX (September 10, 2015)—StudioWhiteNoise recently relocated to Orlando, FL, upgrading to a Rupert Neve Designs 5088 console, supplied by Vintage King Audio, in the process.
After establishing a presence in the Washington, DC music scene and touring nationwide with his band 23RAINYDAYS, StudioWhiteNoise founder Abe Elmazahi decided to focus more on music production. Elmazahi says, “Our philosophy has always been to create an atmosphere that inspired the best performance from our artists, and one that elevates their art to the next level…we are hopeful that we have achieved this in the new space.” The studio tends to work mostly on rock and hip-hop, but Elmazahi is open to all genres.
“[C]hoosing the 5088 was a very easy choice for us,” according to Elmazahi—most of his favorite albums were recorded on Rupert’s vintage consoles. “To me, they have a distinct and recognizable character. In my quest to achieve that same flavor in my recordings, I realized that the only way to do so is through an authentic Rupert Neve Designs console.”
Elmazahi previously had several pieces of Rupert Neve Designs gear including a rack of 511s, 543s, and 551s, plus the Portico II Master Buss Processor and 5059 Satellite. “Those pieces of gear helped us achieve an amazing sound, and when used in conjunction with one another, gave us that signature Neve sound.” Elmazahi’s new 5088 has an eight-channel mainframe with a penthouse of Shelford 5052s, a meterbridge and SwiftMix automation.
