At the 123rd AES Convention in New York City, Peter Gabriel (pictured) and Solid State Logic showcased a customized 240-square-foot Summerwood Cheyenne shed housing a recording studio. An SSL AWS 900+ console was connected to SSL XLogic processing and converters, with additional equipment provided by Guitar Center, acoustic treatment by Auralex, Argosy studio furniture and Henick-Lane air conditioning.

Gabriel was inspired to create The Shed because he wrote many of his best works in a shed at the bottom of his garden.

The Shed is designed as an easy-to-specify professional recording studio for those who need to realize their creative ambitions without disturbing domestic life. The Shed requires only a concrete pad, power connection and, in some cases, a building permit.

SSL is offering The Shed for less than $250,000, depending on a customer's requested finish, specification and location. The Shed is available only through specially authorized SSL dealers. To guarantee performance, the studio package includes a visit by one of SSL’s engineers to verify the audio installation, provide introductory console training and certify the facility.
