Since its opening in 1931, Abbey Road Studios have been known as a bastion of recording excellence and innovation. EMI’s Recording Engineer Development Department (REDD) was established in 1955 by Abbey Road Studios technical engineer Lenn Page to address the needs of the then-burgeoning stereophonic format. Within a year, the team’s efforts had led to the production of the REDD.1 console, Abbey Road Studios’ first dedicated stereo mixing system, which consisted of a REDD.8 mixer and a rack that housed its amplifiers and other components.
Redd.17 and Redd.37
Waves meticulously recreated the color, character and tonal complexity of the original desks: The REDD.17 which still belongs to Abbey Road Studios, and the REDD.37 console now owned by Lenny Kravitz. The result is an impressive pair of plugins that deliver the dimension, depth and richness of these console classics.
