One Minute at an All-Analog Recording Studio

June 11th, 2017 by Gregory de Richemont
Kerwax Analog Recording Studio is located in the quiet village of Loguivy-Plougras in Britanny, France. It offers residential facilities, so artists can spend time away from big cities distractions and focus on their music.

The studio is fully loaded with an exceptional collection of analog vintage gear from the 1940’s to the 1970’s, and hosts an internally developed 24-channel vacuum tube mixing console to meet the requirements of in-house sound engineers and producers.
I made this one-minute video while visiting Christophe Chavanon at his studio in May 2017. That afternoon, the atmosphere was warm and the 24-track Studer master deck was recording blues-rock music. You can see Christophe launching the Revox B77 MKII for delay, and the immense studio space.

Besides the residential studio, Christophe has developed the Kerwax Replica, a 2-channel excerpt of the 24-channel custom tube mixer installed in the studio. I own one and use it at Le Son Studio for remastering projects. Thanks to its gentle Baxandall Equalization curves, the treble and bass adjustments are musical and causes minimal phase distortion.

If you consider recording a full analog album, Kerwax Studio could be a cool option!
