Minneapolis, MN (November 14, 2011)—Studio founder Joseph Mabbott has added new equipment to The Hideaway Studio in Minneapolis.
The facility recently acquired its third Aurora Lynx 16 Converter for its Pro Tools|HD 3 system, chosen for its full and transparent sound, and an Elysia Xpressor 500 chosen for its versatility and flexibility in the mix stage. Also new to the studio is a third SSL SuperAnalogue Compressor to add to its already furnished SSL X rack system of E Series Compressors and an E Series EQ, which is Mabbott's "go to rack" for drum processing. The studio also gained its tenth API 550B EQ, which fills out one of the studio's four API 500 series racks, and a Retro 176 Limiting Amplifier, which has quickly become one of Mabbott's favorite compressors for vocals and bass.
"Acquiring this new equipment contributes to the extensive collection of outboard gear that The Hideaway Studio already has in place and allows even greater options and flexibility for capturing and creating a better end result for clients," says Mabbott. "With every addition and upgrade of gear, we are able to broaden the pallet of tools available to maintain a high-quality outcome standard for the studio as well as the engineers working with our clients, which ultimately provides our clientele with a superior product."
The new gear recently acquired is reflective of the studio's ongoing growth and expansion. The studio most recently extended its services and accommodations to support mainstream use among the general public, which was followed by the launch of an expanded internship program to help provide today's recording, production and engineering students with greater opportunities for gaining authentic hands-on music industry experience.
