Posted on: Monday 11th of February 2019
Miloco have added several studios to their booking roster, including the legendary Hansa, Renewsound – Miloco’s first studio in Bulgaria – and NXNE (also known as North by North East) “a homely writing pad in North-East London”.
Hansa has been in operation for over 50 years, and has recorded the likes of David Bowie, U2, R.E.M., Manic Street Preachers, and many more. The studio retaining its classic 1970s layout, with a large control room, 200sqm live room, booth and Italian marble drum room. This gives Hansa exceptional acoustics and is ideal for drum or amp recording with direct visual contact to all rooms. The control room is centred around a classic 56-Channel SSL E Series console – one of only three ever finished in “Hansa Blue” – and a Pro Tools HD system, and no less than 5 Studer tape machines. There is an acredible array of outboard including studio classic analogue such as 1176s, an LA-2A and an EMT 156. The live room is packed with instruments such as the stunning Steinway Model B, Hammond, Rhodes, Clavinet and a host of backline. The mic list includes a valve Neumann U47 and U67, and other rarities such as a Gefell UM7 and Neumann S2c.
Located in the heart of the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, Renewsound is a professional audio recording and mixing studios that was designed and built to the highest standard. Built in the mid 1990s, Renewsound is one of the very few professional recording studios which existed in post-communist Bulgaria, and in 2016 underwent a renovation to update the look and spec to achieve the highest standards of contemporary design and audio quality. The two-studio facility is comprised of a large live room, with an excellent acoustic treatment, and the connected control room.
The live room is large enough to house small orchestras and choirs, but is also cosy enough to suit individual players and smaller groups. The control room is centred around a Looptrotter SATUR-8 8 channel Saturator and Summing Mixer, and is home to a range of gear, mics and instruments from brands such as Gibson, Fender, DW, Slingerland, MESA, and Marshall.
