Glenwood Place Studios recently installed a 68-channel custom Neve 8068 MKII with Flying Fader Automation.

Heading the custom Neve 8068 installation was chief engineer Mitch Berger, who has been busy upgrading and retrofitting the console for the Neve room's first client, Stix Hooper.

"When we first received the console, it was two completely separate boards--it had two master sections," said Berger. "The first thing was to remove one of the master sections, convert it into a bucket for eight channels and then move the other center section over one bucket so it's in the center of the console. We've done a lot of modifications in the master section. You can now send talkback to individual or any combination of aux sends, 16- or 4-track, the metering can monitor any of the mix buses or group outputs. We added two cue source-select modules so that you can select any group of inputs to the headphones without patching them, which is pretty convenient. We replaced most of the wiring, so now 89 percent of the right side of the console is Mogami wiring. We recapped the whole console with the best capacitors we could buy on the market. The patchbay also got replaced--it's a completely nickel-plated patchbay now. Sonically, nothing has changed; we just brought it up to modern console standards. It's just a great all-purpose board. It's got one of the best mic pre's and EQs in the world that were ever designed."

Complementing the Neve 8068 room is the Pro Tools|HD system, as well as analog and digital formats. The room also features a large tracking area with several iso booths. For more, visit www.glenwoodstudios.com.
