Last month saw Ivor Novello award winning Producer / Songwriter Steve Booker’s stunning new Cake Studios open its doors following the installation of a 48-channel SSL Duality equipped control room to complement the existing writing facilities already on site.
Technical installation was handled by Langdale Technical Consulting who have a long standing working relationship with VDC and the studio marked the 100th Control Room installation on their part, almost all of which have been complemented by Van Damme cable. Langdale’s Bill Ward commented that since the introduction of Van Damme in 1987 they have been using the cable almost exclusively due to it unrivalled sonic excellence and proven long term durability.
The studio was wired throughout with Van Damme blue series studio grade cable and along with the Duality console the spec list included a huge 96 channel protools rig and a host of high-end analogue outboard gear. The majority of the bespoke cabling was manufactured at VDC’s Kings Cross facility and was spec’d after close liaison between Ward and VDC’s Technical Director Nick Chmara, a solution that Langdale and VDC have implemented highly successfully on a number of previous occasions.
