New studio the Barber Shop (Lake Hopatcong, N.J.) will install a new Solid State Logic XL 9000 K Series SuperAnalogue console as the centerpiece of its facility. Co-owners Scott Barber and Mark Salamone plan to offer a cutting-edge, high-power recording facility located in an historic early-1900s church for a perfect creative environment.

“The XL 9000 K Series, outfitted for surround sound mixing, will provide the studio with the superior sonic performance and powerful automation necessary to attract top-shelf talent,” said Salamone. “The XL 9000 K ensures industry interest because of its tremendous popularity with top-end talent.”

The Barber Shop Studios occupies a stone church that was built in the early 1900s. In the early 1970s, the church was converted into a live music venue called the Lighthouse and hosted a number of prominent performing artists. The 6,000-square-foot facility, with an additional marina and restaurant, provides a relaxing creative environment with an incredible view that is accessible to New York City.

“We have assembled a group of professionals including executives, producers, engineers, designers and consultants with over 150 years of combined experience in the music industry to work with us,” said Barber. “The goal of this amazing team is to create one of the most impressive and unique recording facilities in the world, and the XL is critical to this goal. SSL has established itself as the maker of the world’s premier recording consoles. We feel the XL Series console is the best choice for our clients. We were particularly impressed with the Ultipan function in the 5.1 section of the console.”

Fran Manzella is supervising the acoustic design of the studio, while the electronic design encompass both new and old recording technologies. The studio, due to open this spring, will offer a vast collection of vintage microphones, outboard gear and instruments, along with up-to-date digital equipment and tools. The studio will also feature full-service analog and digital recording and post-production, including 5.1 and 7.1 digital recording, editing, mixing and mastering services.
