Much of Abbey Road Studios’ prized vintage equipment was custom-built by EMI and Abbey Road technicians to meet the demands of pioneering artists. Together with partners Waves and Softube, we have created faithful software emulations of the unique devices and landmark recording techniques used at the Studios.
