NEWS: Focusrite is celebrating the 29th year since Rupert Neve founded the brand by releasing an amazing documentary on the Focusrite Studio Console. Only 10 Studio Consoles were ever produced with 6 remaining in existence today. These no-compromise consoles were literally the stuff dreams were made of. No expense was spared in creating the ultimate in audio technology at the time.

The documentary is a fascinating look at the producers, engineers, and musicians that used this console to make some incredible records. Plus it’s a fascinating look into the world of audio and music history.
