Here are some pictures of our visit to Abbey Road Studios to master “Nebraska”, last October. Juanjo Zamorano and Jorge Otero travelled to London to work with Miles Showell. Mastering engineers usually concentrate on the technical part and not give their opinion, but we have to say that Miles loved the record.

You can see interesting stuff like the Neumann lathe where Miles cuts by hand vinyl masters, like the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band re-release. Also, the Fairchild tube compressor built by Analoguetube, possibly the best in the world, which was used on our record.
We also visited Studio One, used mostly on orchestal recordings, like “A Day In The Life”, all the orchestral arrangements of “Abbey Road” or the “Star Wars” soundtrack. Including, of course, the worldwide TV broadcast of “All You Need Is Love”.
On the corridors we found rarities like the REDD.17 tube mixing desk, the oldest model, still in use. And we walked the zebra crossing!
