Sony Music Entertainment Japan has installed three 72-channel Neve 88R analog consoles into its large new complex in Tokyo. The facility also hosts five AMS Neve 33609 Limiter Compressors, five AMS DMX-15s and five AMS RMX016s.

The three 88R consoles are installed in Studios 1, 2 and 3 at the studio bau:ton-designed facility. The new facility features five recording studios, 12 mastering studios and seven authoring studios.

"Sony Music Entertainment needs a large studio complex to allow for a comprehensive and continous operation, including recording, mastering, archiving and up-to-date online music distribution," said chief technical engineer Mr. Watanabe. "The reaction to the studio design has been very favorable, and everyone is amazed by the total sound created with all the equipment -- it has been very well accepted for its clarity.

"We chose analog consoles, because digital consoles would not have been suitable because of the bandwidth," Watanabe continues. "Following a series of sound-quality tests, we chose the Neve 88Rs, because the console is exclusively designed for recording applications."
