Ocean Way Studios

Ocean Way’s Studio D offers a custom 84 input Neve 88R console with all the latest updates. The control room has too much outboard equipment. Really. I could easily take a few of their units from them. I have enough room in my studio.

    Richard – question for you….. Re: all the rack gear in the picture….

    Would they be cabled via external patch bays?

    Or are the components pieced together at the time of recording, with the most suitable ones selected each time?

    Or, something else?

    As you may recall, I have a rack with about 25 pieces of guitar gear in it and would love to know how best to access and repatch quickly in the event of needing different tones….

    Hi Rob,

    In most cases, fixed outboard equipment present input/output connections to a patchbay. The equipment is typically balanced and there are conventions associated with the type of patchbay, normalled/half-normalled, and the wiring and grounding. Unbalanced equipment, which may be present in your guitar rack, poses a bit more of a challenge when routed through a patchbay. If you are interested in learning more please let me know via email. I will pass you some more information on wiring up a patchbay.
