Musician/producer Bob Kidby, co-owner of Stupid Music Ltd, has expanded his personal production space, adding a Neve Genesys G32 to his studio located in his private residence. The wiring was completed using exclusively Van Damme cable from VDC.
“I retired as a lawyer five years ago mainly with the intention of setting up my own studio. Having played lead guitar in bands since 1963, I have always been involved in the recording process,” says Kidby
“My friend and business partner, Tim Blanchard, and I decided we needed a top-of-the-range console to complete the studio. When it came down to it, there was only one desk that did just what we wanted – the Neve Genesys – which we bought through The Studio Shop. We were very well advised along the way by Adam Pierce of Sound Network and the three of us decided the need was to combine digital ease of use and plenty of good external hardware with analogue warmth. To do this we had to rewire the studio. In our minds there was only one top cable manufacturer to turn to for this work – and that was VDC Trading. Many thanks to Niall and all at VDC Trading for a first class job which was quick, friendly and helps us sound great!”
Since the installation, the studio has been busy with both personal and professional projects including Kidby’s own band, Clarence King & The Regents’ (swing/ska/blues/jazz) album.
