Warner Bros. Recording Studios Nashville is now equipped with a variety of new and upgraded gear in both of its recording facilities, the larger Studio A and compact Studio B. Both facilities are available to book for in-house and independent clients.

Studio A is a facility for bands and large ensemble recording sessions with one of the last remaining large-format analog recording consoles in Nashville. A newly upgraded array of Avid HD audio interfaces, an Antelope Audio Isochrone OCX word clock, and a 16-core Mac Pro workstation provide fast and reliable recording. The upgrades also include eight new Classical Audio Products, Inc. FD312 “Heider” preamps.

Studio B, a room for overdub recording and writing/programming sessions, has been upgraded with Avid HD audio interfaces, a 16-core Mac Pro workstation, and an Antelope Audio Isochrone OCX word clock. A Grace M905 monitoring system serves as the studio’s centerpiece. A pair of Empirical Labs EL-8 Distressors as well as brand new preamps and EQs from Classic Audio Products Inc. and Shadow Hills expand the versatility of this space. A variety of new microphones, such as the Wunder Audio CM-7, have also been included in the studios.

“The ease and efficiency of working with Madli Kents [Alto Music], Jeff Steigen [Classic Audio Products Inc.], and Mike Castoro [Wunder Audio] was critical for the completion of the upgrade plans,” said Clarke Schleicher, director of studio services.
