B Pro Production, a Dubai-based multimedia production company founded in 2012, has recently invested in two Solid State Logic Duality δelta SuperAnalogue consoles for its A and B music studios.
B Pro Production covers a wide range of musical genres from renowned Arabic artists within the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) area, which includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
The facility has four music recording studios in total, plus a mastering suite. Studio A is the flagship space with a live room that can accommodate up to 75 musicians, has a spacious private lounge, and a large control room now with a 48-Channel SSL Duality δelta Pro Station console. Studio B has another private lounge and a tracking space with variable-surface walls. It features a 24-track SSL Duality δelta SuperAnalogue console and a wide range of outboard gear.
CEO Ahmed Alali started out as a musician and band leader, but soon moved onto sound engineering, launching his first studio - High Vision Production - and subsequently moving on to be senior sound engineer and studio manager at Dubai Media Inc.
"This is one of the best multi-track recording spaces around," said Alali. "It can be adapted to suit multiple production needs, depending on the atmosphere and sound you’re going for, and the 5.1 mixing capabilities of the Duality are particularly valuable.
"Studios C and D are smaller spaces, well-suited to vocal tracking, song writing, overdubs, and sound design, as well as mixing, and our Mastering Suite is unique in the MENA region... We have a specially designed area equipped with the finest gear – both vintage and ultra-modern."
Alali added: ”The combination of the SuperAnalogue preamps with the VHD (Variable Harmonic Drive) circuit makes a positive a difference to any sound you can dream up. And having both G and E-series EQ options in one channel is a massive advantage, capable of bringing a unique image to the sound."
