AEA Studio Rebuild

Hey everyone long time no see, been keeping busy like usual.  I thought that I would just check in an let you know what I have been up to of late.  Recently I have been rebuilding the recording studio space at AEA.  This all started because I got a MCI JH16 8track 1inch tape machine and needed some where to put it.  My boss ( Wes Dooley ) was nice enough to let me put it at work up in the front room.  Part of the condition was that I put the time in so that we could easily record and play back most formats of audio be it tape or digital.

So, the live room is also AEA shipping and receiving room, it is a good sized space that has been well treated.  There are 19 pairs of old Belden cable coming from the live room up to the front control room. Currently 16 of those lines end in DB25 connectors that are plugged into and API lunch box.  From the outputs of the lunch box it goes into a patch-bay  normalled into a Lynx Aurora 16.

AEA also owns a Studer A810 2 track machine, which is also hooked into the patch-bay for mix downs.  We have a bench mark 2 channel interface that I am planning on putting into the mix as well for high quality stereo conversion be it tape or records as well as sending stereo mixes to the A810.   I am planning on moving the Studer 961 8 channel console we have as well for mixing of the 8 track MCI machine.

Here are some photos of pertinent things:

Here is a video of the studio. Playing audio from the record, then I am recording it onto tape and monitoring it back through the Lynx.
