Students work on the 60’s Neve desk.
Last week, students in their final year of our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree headed down to the incredible Lynchmob Studios to record 70s inspired Psych band Caper Parade. The final year of the course focuses on advanced mixing and mastering, with students learning to use Protools in a professional, commercial environment using full SSL consoles in 5.1 surround. Students record a live act (provided by Point Blank) and are tasked with setting up the studio before getting down to recording.

This time, students were lucky enough to record at Max Heyes’ (Z Management, Point Blank) Lynchmob studios. Max has worked with artists such as Primal Scream, Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene, Doves and on singles by Jamiroquai and Massive Attack. His remarkable studio has a 1960s Neve Mixing desk, 60’s mics and a plethora of assorted contemporary and vintage equipment. It is a true analogue paradise.
