    Default 5150 studio

    hey guys I hardly ever post, but i'm inbetween jobs and BORED... ok I am gonna start this and see how well we like it..

    ok the studio... I want to discuss the history of 5150 here and see if we can all piece it together from interviews and anyone who has actually visited it, lets face it this place is THE studio for us all and one afternoon in it would last us all a lifetime of WOW's.

    ok it started as a raquetball court right? Then Ed just wanting a place to get away with Donn Landee basically walled up a court and wrote it off to the city as a work out place, it had a living area, kitchen, bathroom,office, control room, and record room that was VERY small and a storage area, and upstairs was Val's workout room origianlly then became guitar storage. Anyone have pics or other info that I am missing here? It had just a 16 track board. they did 1984,5150, OU812 on this setup,, then I know they totally remodeled it n 89, added a drum room and extra storage, regutted the control room and put in a 48 channel board and new machines, I have a video of RHRN of that studio it's small but nice they did FUCK and Balance on that setup... then in 96 they expanded the drum room and added a 16 digital board on top the 48 board? And they did the best of and 3 on that setup, then after 3 they redid it to a 72 channell board and yet added more drum room?? ok lets piece this one together guys.. help out what else happened and what dates am I mixing up.

    Sounds about right.
    I am not 100% sure, but i remember reading that "It's about time" was the first VH tune that was digitally recorded on "Pro tools".
    So, i assume 5150 was remodeled again between 1998 and 2004.
    It's not that Ed had so much to do in the meantime anyway!

    Here's a good photo of the control room. There's some other shots in that thread of Ed's guitar storeroom as well.
