    One of the latest VTC installations in the UK is at Music Bank in London, where respected engineer/producer Chris Tsangarides has assembled his own impressively equipped studio in order to record Gary Moore's new blues-influenced album. The studio, which centres around a 32 channel VTC and Otari Radar system, has been put together so that the band's performances in the adjacent rehearsal space can be recorded onto multitrack, resulting in a virtual 'live' album!

    "Gary and his band are doing what they do best - playing live - and the sound we're getting down here is terrific. When we weighed up the relative costs of doing a conventional studio album, or investing in the VTC and doing everything here in this environment, it made much more sense to set up camp here. As far as the console goes, there's nothing in its price range to match it - its ease of operation is second to none, and it sounds great. It really is a pro desk at a semi-pro price."

    Chris, whose associations with Gary stretch back to the Colosseum 2 days, already has a formidable arsenal of TL Audio outboard gear, including Ivory range voice processors, compressors and EQs. "To be honest though, I've not touched any outboard preamps on this album so far. Everything we have recorded has gone straight into the desk - it's that good!"
