7 West Studios installs Audient

The Audient ASP8024 mixing desk installed last year at Scotland’s 7 West Studios is sized at 48-channels.

“What I love about the Audient console is simple,” says head engineer Ophir Shamir. “It does what it’s supposed to do, it does it well, it’s simple to understand and operate, and it gets out of the way. Since day one, all projects have recorded and mixed on the Audient desk, with support from outboard preamps and processors for added colour.

“The preamps are clean, the EQ’s are effective enough to shape anything going to tape, and the master buss noise floor is virtually non-existent. The master compressor is used extensively as well. All of this combined makes it a very flexible console, and allows me to shape and colour things the way I want for each project.”
