Studio Mega (Suresnes, France) announced that it has ordered the largest XL 9000 K SuperAnalogue Series Console in Europe. The 96-channel console, supplied in a four-wing configuration, will be delivered in August to be installed in Studio A, a 30-square-foot control room and the premier studio in Mega’s four-room, all-SSL facility.

The studio holds an international client roster including Lenny Kravitz, Celine Dion, Sting, Roger Waters, Bryan Adams and Elton John, coupled with movie credits encompassing many box office hits such as the musical comedies Ten Commandments and Romeo and Juliet.

Last year, Thierry Rogen, manager of Studio Mega, was convinced that, with two MT Plus digital multitrack consoles and a second SSL 9080 J Series installed in Studio B, his clients could enjoy the best of both the analog and digital worlds. When he saw the XL, "It really was love at first sight," he said.

"The new K Series computer, which we enjoy in our MT Plus studios, is a familiar and much appreciated asset, and the sound quality of the 9K is an industry benchmark," said Rogen. "To improve on this was a fantastic feat from SSL’s engineering team, but I had no doubt that they would succeed. As for the innovative 5.1 mixing tools, that’s the icing on the cake!"

Studio Mega opened 15 years ago as a two-studio facility in a converted concrete bunker on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne. In 1996, the studio moved to its current location, which offered more space. Studio A, for example, has a large 53.3-square-foot live room, capable of accommodating 70 musicians. Now, with the arrival of his XL, Rogen asserted, "In offering our clients the choice of recording and mixing in analog or digital environments, Studio Mega maintains its unique position in the premier league of world-class studios."
