French superstar Pascal Obispo inaugurates "La Brasserie" with a private concert for the release of his new double album, "Live fan - Studio fan". Sony Music Belgium has booked the new venue for a private showcase, given in front of some 150 people, some of them being lucky fans, winners of a contest, and the Belgian medias - the Belgian main TVs, radios and newspapers. "La Brasserie" being linked to the SSL studio, the concert has been mixed in stereo for the TVs and the radios, but also recorded in multitrack onto Pro Tools HD.


On top of the already successful SSL room (Studio II), Synsound Studios open up a brand new digital studio (Studio III), with "good pricing, but top quality", and studio-owner Dan Lacksman opens up a dedicated synthesizer-room, "The Synthroom"

The Digital Studio:
This studio is based around a SONY DMX-R 100 desk and a Pro Tools 24 Mix + with all plugins.
A large recording room with daylight and top quality acoustics, designed by Dan Lacksman, offers you the possibility to do quality recordings of drums, vocals and all acoustic instruments.
This room also features the possibility to transfer your multitrack tapes onto Pro Tools (before they become unreadable !), from ADAT or DA-80 8 trk, 24 trk analog or digital, 32 tr digital and 48 trk digital multitrack formats.

The Synthroom:

Is a heaven for musicians who appreciate vintage and new keyboard-sounds.
From modular Moog to soft-synths it's all ready to go.
Just like the Digital Studio, the Synthroom is based around a digital SONY DMX-R100 desk and a Pro Tools system with Mister Lacksman tweaking the knobs...what can you possibly want more?
