Dennis Moody Studio was designed and built in 2001. It is located just north of downtown near the Mt. Washington area of Los Angeles. We are using a ProTools 10.3.8 HD3 digital recording system with a new AVID HD16 i/o and a Digi 192K converter for 24 in and out. The system is powered by an Intel Mac "Xeon" 2.83Ghz Eight core computer. The tracking room is 14' by 22'. It is a fantastic sounding drum room! We have a nice microphone selection, with a number of Shure mics including KSM44's, KSM32's, KSM27's, KSM 141's, Beta 98's, Beta 52's, SM 98's, SM81's, SM57's, a stereo VS88, and more. A pair of AKG 414B XLll's, and a pair of AKG C451B/ST's. We also carry a pair of MXL 2003's and a pair of MXL 603S condensor mics. Studio Projects mics include the CS5, T3, and a pair of C4's. A Yamaha "Sub kick" rounds out our selection. The studio has a 1937 Chickering 9' concert grand piano that has recently been rebuilt by Pacific Piano. The control room is 14' by 15'. Using a Mackie 24-8 input console, we also have 4 GML 8300 mic pre's, 4 SP "Tutti" Sunset Sound API style mic pre's, 2 Warm Audio WA76 limiters, and 2 Warm Audio EQP-WA Pultec style EQ's. 2 Avalon M5 mic pre's, an Avalon AD2055 stereo EQ, and an Avalon AD2044 stereo compressor. We have 2 DBX 160's and 4 Behringer MDX 2200 compressors. The monitoring system is JBL 6332's powered by an Alesis RA500 amp, and the low end is handled by a pair of JBL LSR6312SP subs. The room is tuned with a Behringer 31 band graphic EQ. The headphone monitoring system is a 16X12 Crest Audio XRM console enabling 6 separate stereo headphone mixes. We use Vic Firth "isolation headphones" to allow for complete control on each cue mix and also have a few pairs of AKG 240 open phones. The control room is wired with Monster Cable. There is also an 11' by 7' isolation booth, with sliding doors for complete visual contact, and a 7' by 3 1/2' vocal booth or amp "closet", also with a window for visual contact. Plenty of parking, wireless high speed internet, and a comfortable, fully equipped lounge.
