Chalice Recording Studios (Los Angeles) recently opened its doors and immediately put an 84-input Neve 88R console to work. Though owner Ben Tao sees his new 7,000-square-foot facility primarily catering to R&B artists, he welcomes all projects. The first act to use the console was From Zero, a nu-metal band signed to Arista Records. Producer/engineer Warren Riker spent two weeks mixing the album in Studio B, for an expected release late this year.

“The 88R was fantastic,” said Stacey Dodds, manager of technical operations at Chalice Recording Studios. “Nothing out there sounds like it, and the automation system was easy to bring up and get onto without hitting a huge learning curve. It’s a superb console in every sense, a classic blend of that rich old Neve sound, modern features and instant recall.”

The new desk, with a 33609 compressor, is the centerpiece of Chalice’s 1,200-square-foot Studio B, an exotically appointed space with rich fabrics and deep-stained walnut trim. Designed by Gary Starr, Studio B provides an abundance of outboard equipment.
