Rolling Stock Recording Rooms was built in 2015-2016 by Myles Mumford, Zvi Belling, Tomas Strode and Jem Savage ably assisted by an enormous team of friends, family, colleagues and interested community members.
The studio is built around a large flexible use mud brick performance space with moveable walls, exposed bricks, concrete floor and big windows. The performance space is a lively room to play or sing in with great presence and feel. The space also houses our prized 1938 Steinway B grand piano, this piano was originally delivered to the TSO where it resided for many years as their concert grand being played by many of the world's finest pianists. The piano is regularly tuned and serviced and has already played host to some of Australia's finest pianists in it's new home.
Surrounding the performance space are three separate and completely independent control rooms purpose built to suit the working processes of Myles, Zvi and Tom. Each control room is fully wired to the performance space and features extensive audio production equipment and instruments.
Myles' control room is based around a 32 i/o UAD Apollo system, an array of custom built equipment including a custom summing console built from Neve components and fantastic monitoring. 48 lines connect the control room to the performance space, 32 channels of mic preamps, an extensive selection of vintage and modern microphones, excellent outboard, and an inspiring and fantastic listening environment all make for a great production room.
