The GSi Studio can be defined as a modern "professional home studio"

It was originally born as a home environment mainly for quiet computer works. Painted with warm and relaxing colors, bright, airy and comfortable, with many light spots, mini-bar and air conditioning, it's a nice place to stay for a long working day with music.

Equipped with great modern and vintage gear, offers the necessary versatility for covering a fairly large number of different recording situations, but it is mainly focused to jazz and pop recordings with small bands.

The new heart of the studio is a D&R Cinemix, a really fascinating analog console with a clean and transparent sound and a powerful digital routing system, it has 32 mic inputs and a total of 36 channels which double to 72 inputs on mix. This console has been conceived for surround 5.1 mixing as it has a 6 channel master output and every mono input can be used with traditional L&R panning or LCRS sound positioning, or can be assigned to one of the two XY joysticks.
The digital recording is based on a Antelope Orion 32 computer interface for a total of 32 simultaneous tracks for recording, and 32 outputs for analog (OTB) mixing. The computer is a powerful Windows based machine running Cubase versions 7.5 and Pro 8, the control room monitoring system is based on a pair of Adam A7x studio near field monitors plus two Yamaha HS-50M for more mid-range clarity, while the recording room monitoring system is based on the new astonishing Behringer Powerplay 16.

But the strength point is the presence of a gorgeous and great sounding Hammond organ model A100 from 1963 equipped with a Leslie 147 and a Leslie 145. And that's not all yet! Other fine instruments are a vintage Rhodes piano Seventythree Mark I from 1978, perfectly tuned and balanced, plus a Sequential Circuits Pro~One, a Yamaha DX7, and other vintage and modern keyboards and effects.
