Some of the best rarest synths on the planet in that room and being used for what they were made for.

SyntaxXxatnyS (2 years ago)
You're welcome :)) But eh, let me clarify: Sadly, I don't own a Pro One and I don't have any videos up on Youtube (yet). After all, I'm not James Wiltshire - in case you thought I am :D Just a random guy who loves sound, music and GEARRRRLUSTTTT ;)
Sylvain Blanquart (2 years ago)
you re right :)) thank you for your help ! ps : i as impress how you use the pro one !!!

I did some more research, and it seems like the owner of "Brain Audio Systems" is nothing but a scammer: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07463374/officers https://www.gearslutz.com/board/high-end/147288-audiojunkie-sam-ssl-final-chapter-l.html https://www.gearslutz.com/board/moan-zone/64065-one-more-audio-junkie-alert.html#post675764 So maybe it's not that bad, after all :-)
Sylvain Blanquart (2 years ago)
too bad :(( thank you

It seems like they're out of business, sadly :s

where can i find some info about the compressor he is talking about around 4 min mark? he says its brains audio systems LAIF 01 - i google for it but nothing...

This reminded me of the pointlessness of accumulating gear for it's own sake. Well at least it they got a good tax break. I always notice which gear is being used.... it will always be an accessible position not stacked up in a corner or on the bottom rung of a keyboard rack.

Knows his stuff (other than calling a Super JX [ JX-10 ] a Jupiter - which it isn't! obviously just a mix up not worth calling the police in or anything)

That Brain Audio Systems compressor doesn't even seem to be in production yet!
jamie8286 (4 years ago)
Does anyone have any information on brain audio systems cant seem to find anything on the company? thanks

Now THIS was a tour. Amazing.
mylarmelodies (4 years ago)
Ha - I used to own that very JX10! Swapped it with them for the rackmount version. James seems a very very savvy guy and really knows his gear inside out - had a good chat with him!
J K (8 months ago)
show off! :P
axs203 (4 years ago)
Those old Jupiters look so funky with their colours.....not sure about the Andromeda!

Talk about love for your gear. James starts off with; "Now this one, is our favourite..." on almost all of them. Awesome studio being used by someone with huge knowledge (+talent) = Not that common.

+LemonSlice that's because you're projecting....
LemonSlice (1 year ago)
? I didn't quite get that.
pcpaulius (1 year ago)
+LemonSlice Everything said that make Internet losers hurt about their lives choices or failed loser idols must be a projection... plus a wannabe wikipidia psychologists....
LemonSlice (1 year ago)
pcpaulius is just projecting
alunmauve (2 years ago)
You've made some pretty bold assumptions there. So I'm assuming you've never heard of James until this video. Hopefully you will have seen some of his more recent F9, Computer music or Masters At Work videos and realise he uses plenty of that outboard gear (such as the Neve 1073 EQ and SSL compressor) in the record path to get analog and digital hardware sounds into abelton and logic for production and mixing. I've much respect for his production values and techniques but above all that, his keenness and ability to impart that knowledge to others.

synths museum is jealous ^^
Jolann Brown (4 years ago)
Gosh! I wish I owned just a third of this... A quarter would be good too... ^^ Amazing stud', cool talk. Thanks for the tour.
Stingray (4 years ago)
I wish there was a way to A/B compressors at the same level.  My ears always only hear JUST the level difference, hard to tell if its compression/coloring or the post gain that is doing it.  Thoughts on that?

Have you got any more details for the guy who fixed the Calrec stuff please?
Effect One Productions (4 years ago)
I loved this studio tour, freemasons know what they talk about. My studio also has old synths , i would never sell one . Love producing even ill never get known ! It aint my purpose anyway.

Now that was a tour. Nice one. Thanks guys.
Leave The World Behind (4 years ago)
Now here is one, knowing what he is doing! Their music is kind of boring though, so I guess that is what happens when you become so technical...
NOTMuzzaFuzza (4 years ago)
So many synths sleeping :'( I just love this studio! so many things to play with! *-* Producer's Heaven!!!!  Massive cheers to Freemasons!!
Kenan D'Shredder (4 years ago)
