The Studio

    Permanent Records is filled with high-end recording gear and instruments. From Marshall amps to Gibson and Guild guitars, Drum Workshop drums, Korg keyboards, Warwick and SWR bass equipment, plus the Focusrite, Digidesign and Motu audio/midi interfaces make the quality comparable to top-dollar studios.  

   Permanent Records is set up ready to record. Every purchase was painstakingly researched to bring out the best in the source material - this means excellent microphones and mic preamps.

   A quick look through the gear here will tell you we mean business—everything is streamlined to give maximum speed of setup and flexibility. Keyboards patched directly through the patch bay. A separate microphone patch bay to stop mucking around behind the rack. Cables neatly tucked away in categorized drawers. Every customizable feature in Protools remapped and renamed to conform directly with the studio itself.
