Hopetown Re-Opened June 4!
After being closed to the public since March 13, we're finally cautiously re-opening our space to artists in an initially limited capacity.
We set up our main iso booth (12x16') as a parallel control room where artists can work isolated without masks and enjoy a mirrored feed of both the sound and video from the main control room along with an always-on talkback.
Studio B is also available for fully isolated sessions for artists who don't need a staff engineer. Call/email for info.
"Icarus Falls" Certified Gold!
RCA/Sony recording artist and pop sensation Zayn Malik (formerly of One Direction) wrote and performed tracks for 5 songs off his epic 27 song sophomore release "Icarus Falls" at Hopetown in the fall of 2017.
These songs included the singles Let Me and The Entertainer.
We are honored to have hosted Zayn and provided a creative space for this great album to grow.
Icarus also just reached 800 million streams on Spotify!
New Desk in STUDIO A!
We're thrilled with this big change to our studio A control room. The new desk by Zaor Studio Furniture improves acoustics and workflow ergonomics. It also frees up even more space in our already large main control room.
Inspired by the desk design we've just added both mic preamps and EQs by Brent Averill Electronics based on the Neve 1073 design. The left bay of the desk now has 4 API Mic pres and EQs (4x 512c, 2x 560, 2x 550A) and 4 BAE Mic Pres and EQs (all 1073) for an amazing 8 channel sidecar console.
We've also expanded our Lynx converter to 32 channels i/o and installed all new patchbays and cabling (Sept 2020) IsIn
