I doubt that the stereo imaging is very good in that room, but hey - who cares when you've got that amount of drool-worthy gear to play around with! :beamup:

Nice to see a few old-fashioned signal generators at front left too - a real dose of nostalgia.

Hi all! :bouncy:
I´m Ernesto Romeo, founder of the electronic music group Klauss (1988-today) and La Siesta Del Fauno Laboratory-Studio (since 2011, in the city of Buenos Aires).
It was a pleasure to make the note for SOS with Hannes Bieger, whom I met at his studio in Berlin in 2016 and who then came to La Siesta Del Fauno on each of his subsequent trips to Argentina.
When we created La Siesta Del Fauno with my partner, the sound engineer Pablo Gil, we thought about enhancing everything that my previous labs had meant (dedicated almost exclusively to work with synthesizers and electronic instruments) with spaces to record also acoustic instruments (our first acquisitions as partners were a Bössendorfer piano and a Lexicon 480!) and voices and to make mixes and, eventually, mastering.
The main control and mixing room is also Klauss' rehearsal, producing and composing room and is conceived as a multifunctional work space and, despite being spacious, it is overflowed with synthesizers, keyboards and electronic instruments, hahaha.
In addition to the main room we have the recording room (or live room) and a smaller studio dedicated mainly to work with contemporaneous equipment.
The space is more inspired by something like the Nemo Studios that Vangelis had in London than in a recording studio and mix more "aseptic", but still we have taken care of the sound to make mixes in such a way that all the activities are compatible and so that it gives very good results (even other producers and recording technicians come to carry out their projects to our studio) even with the restrictions of such a particular configuration.
Our idea was, from the beginning, to put all our equipment at the disposal of as many artists as possible and to make the studio accessible to all kinds of people and, indeed, we recorded from mainstream bands and projects in Argentina as underground or independent projects and we also work with artists from several other countries (some of which are cited in the SOS article).
And another important task is that we give classes, courses, workshops, seminars and conferences since we are very interested in the exchange of knowledge.
I leave here (for real nerdies!) a list of the equipment of La Siesta Del Fauno and, of course, are all welcome!
