SSL AWS at The Toy Box Hay Bale Studio

Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of creative tools for audio professionals, is delighted to once again be lending a helping hand to East Nashville’s The Toy Box Studio on their annual recording pilgrimage to the superb Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival being held in Tennessee USA between June 13 - 16.

They will once again build The Toy Box Hay Bale Studio, an ingenious makeshift 'soundproofed' studio buried beneath hundreds of hay bales behind the main stage. There they can capture for posterity any of the 150 artists leaving the limelight of their performances to the 80,000 attendees to play and record stripped-down versions of their songs. And everywhere everyone will also be enjoying 700 acres of Tennessee nature at its very best.

The Toy Box Hay Bale Studio has a significant SSL system at its heart with SSL providing an AWS 948 hybrid console/controller, an X-Rack SuperAnalogue™ modular rack system loaded with additional dynamics processing, a Live-Recorder 128-channel DAW recorder/player, plus a generous helping of XLogic Alpha-Link I/O to interface console and recording rig, The Toy Box Hay Studio will be creating the very best recordings possible for everyone’s enjoyment with sessions filmed and content available to enjoy for free online at the Bonaroo 365 youtube channel. In 2012 The Toy Box Hay Bale Studio produced more than 40 superb recordings. You can see an archive of 2012 session videos here.

One thing’s for sure: success is guaranteed, for Bonnaroo 2013 is already long since sold out!
