Abbey Road’s Audio Products department has developed a range of products for both pro and home studio users. Back in the 50s, 60s and 70s, Abbey Road Studios worked with EMI to custom build mixing consoles and outboard gear to meet the demands and ambitions of the studio engineers and the artists they worked with. Most of this equipment was only available to EMI Studios and was never sold commercially. This equipment, combined with the expertise of our engineers and the unique acoustic properties of the studios, created what has come to be known as the 'Abbey Road Sound', which can be heard on some of the most popular recordings of all time.
In 2004, Abbey Road Studios launched a range of audio products with the aim of providing users with the tools to create and produce music - tools based on Abbey Road’s legendary equipment, engineers and acoustics.
We have released a limited number of products that faithfully recreate some of EMI’s most celebrated equipment, ranging from software plug-ins and hardware emulations of vintage EMI outboard gear, to sampled instruments recorded using our collection of vintage microphones, mixings consoles and tape machines.
We continue to work with industry leading partners such as Waves, Native Instruments and Chandler.
Please note, as of October 2013 there have been some changes to our existing plugins software. Please click here for more details.
