Solid State Logic AWS 900 Centerpiece of Christina Aguileras Private Studio

Top Level Talent Working With Top Level Console for Creative Sessions

BEVERLEY HILLS, CA–When searching for that perfect combination of equipment to live within the space confines of a home creative environment, top engineer Oscar Ramirez, who has worked with Kanye West, P. Diddy and Aftermath Records, suggested a Solid State Logic AWS 900+ console to drive the resident Pro Tools system for Christina Aguilera’s private studio. The AWS 900+ was the perfect console for the space confines of a private facility and for fulfilling the mission of creating finished tracks for future release.

“I had used the AWS 900+ at another studio and so I was very familiar with its capabilities,” says Ramirez. “This particular console became available to us and I strongly recommended making it the centerpiece of Christina’s studio over simply getting a control surface to run Pro Tools. For the mission of the studio, the AWS was the best choice because it is a real console that gives us that great SSL sound. When you are dealing with top level talent and producers, you really need to deliver and the AWS delivers.”

According to Ramirez, one of the considerations was that the AWS 900+ does not need a separate machine room and that worked for the budget and the space requirements of the control room. The studio room is large enough for a drummer, a bass player and a guitarist to jam out, so the space savings with the AWS was a big plus for this studio. Aguilera’s design team additionally purchased eight channels of XLogic mic amps and dynamics modules to augment the 24-channels available on the console, yielding a full 32-channels of industry leading SuperAnalogue sound.
“We have been using the console for just over a month and everything has been going great with the console,” states Ramirez. “We’re doing the whole writing and recording process at the studio with Christina and we are working right now on some projects. The beauty of the AWS is that if we have to go to a bigger studio, the tracks we create with the AWS are finished tracks because the quality is there. We can also get amazing mixes out of the console. I really love working with the AWS.”
