Invite Only Studios has opened in New York City featuring design by 2020 TEC Award-nominee Malvicino Design Group and massive Ocean Way Audio speakers for stereo and 5.1 monitoring. Germany's Sommer Cable was used throughout the studio and in the OWA monitoring system. Studio A houses a 48-channel SSL Duality console, while Studio B has as its centerpiece, a custom Slate Raven Z3C MTX console, the only one of its kind in the world.
Both Studios A and B feature full Ocean Way Audio 5.1 surround monitoring with three HR3.5 speakers in front and two HR4 speakers in the rear channels. State-of-the-art A-4100 amplifiers power the monitors with both analog and digital inputs, 96 kHz and 24-bit sampling, tri-amped delivering 3,400 watts per channel of pure power. At the heart of the acoustic design is OWA's geometrically complex, composite dual/hybrid waveguide system.
Traditional mixers who prefer an "old school workflow" will feel comfortable at Invite Only, as will mixers who wish to leverage features of analog mixing as well as DAW control via the console. On hand is a variety of traditional and boutique outboard gear from manufacturers such as Manley, Avalon, Pultec, Universal Audio and numerous others.
Studio B features the Raven console's batch automation technology, giving quick access to "in-the-box" efficiency. Studio C functions as a writer's room and boutique project studio with iso booth. A few key pieces of outboard gear complement the SSL AWS 948 console, offering a unique experience overlooking midtown Manhattan.
The monitoring systems include Ocean Way Audio Ultravoice(r) amplifiers and voicing modules. Sommer Cable is used both internally for the cabinets and also from the amps to the cabinets, respectively Elephant Robust SPM440 cable and SC-Twincord cable.
Invite Only includes three recording/media Studios, a 12.5 ft. Cyclorama Wall, a 14 ft. bar, full kitchen, VIP Room with a flight simulator, zero gravity massage chair, 100-inch media screen and event space that can accommodate approximately 100 people. See more at inviteonly.studio
