Although initially aimed at post-production facilities, the many advantages of Yamaha’s Nuage control system have also been noticed by the music production industry, with the result that an increasing number of studios are adopting Nuage. One example is The Musical Box in Roeselare, Belgium.
Named after the 1971 Genesis song of the same name, the studio was founded by Filip Seynaeve who, after working for 34 years at professional services network Deloitte, decided that it was time to follow his heart into sound recording.
As a child, Filip’s father owned one of the first HiFi-shops in the area and his passion for audio goes back many years. After leaving Deloitte in 2014, he embarked on a course as an engineer/producer at MusiCasa studios in Knesselare. In the meantime he built The Musical Box on the Accent Business Park in Roeselare, with the intention of providing state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for his clients.
When it came to the choice of mixing console, Filip consulted Alain Wymeels - recording engineer, producer and owner of Midician Pro Audio. Alain recommended Nuage as the most advanced and modern way of working.
Full access on all controls from the Nuage surface
Featuring the full complement of three fader units, the Nuage control surface can handle the biggest recording jobs. The choice for Steinberg’s Nuendo as the DAW became obvious as this gives the full access on all controls from the Nuage surface.
Being hands-on with Nuage has made a big impression on Alain Wymeels, as well as Peter Desmedt, his fellow regular engineer and producer at The Musical Box. “Working with Nuage and Nuendo is just wonderful,” says Alain.
Filip Seynaeve has made his dream of owning a high specification recording studio come true. For Alain, Peter and the studio’s client base – starting from contemporary bands, music and sound design for commercials/the Internet and television companies, up to the pro-musician - having access to a truly cutting-edge recording system is also a dream scenario.
