Universal Audio 24 Channel Studio

Groove Studio has 24 track recording with 3 Universal Audio Apollo X8P interfaces. The X8P allows tracking, overdub, and mixing with elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, HEXA Core UAD plug-in processing, Dual-Crystal clocking, and 7.1 surround sound monitoring. Dual-Crystal clocking features dedicated crystals resulting in stunningly low jitter, measured at less than 10 picoseconds. This translates into pure, artifact-free recordings and solid stereo imaging. With 129 dB dynamic range and -119 dB THD+N, Apollo x8p’s open, natural sound rivals any dedicated high-end converter in any studio in the world.

Digitally modelled pre-amps provide all the great classic pre-amps and channel strips from Neve, API, SSL, Avalon, Manley and more. All versions of the best modelled plugins are available including Studer, Oxide & Ampex tape, delay and modulation effects to achive any desired artistic tone, equalizers, compressors, limiters, guitar & bass amplifiers as well as commercial grade mastering and microphone modelling.

Neve Portico II Master Buss Processor

The ultimate dynamics, tone, and stereo field control. Based around the high voltage, discrete and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer, the Portico II Master Buss Processor is a creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting. Though originally developed for mastering applications, the MBP quickly became a favorite of mix engineers, tracking engineers, and even FOH engineers. From mixing bass-heavy EDM to a delicate master of a chamber ensemble, it has something to offer everyone – no matter the use or genre.

Neve 5057 Analog Summing

The 5057 Orbit gives your mixes the legendary tonality, power, and wide-open soundstage that only Rupert Neve’s class-A analog summing can provide. Coupled with Rupert’s famous custom audio transformers and Silk Red & Blue circuitry for variable harmonic saturation.

Helix Rack Guitar Processing

Helix Rack processors are comprehensive master controllers for your guitar system, with extensive I/O that provides unprecedented flexibility for studio and stage. The Helix is a stomp box on sterioids and provides almost any tone or effect any musician culd ever desire. Groove Studio has TWO Helix rack units in the studio arsenal.
