Rock Garden Studio is home to the only custom-built Aengus/API Custom 30 Channel recording console in service. Installed and customized by audio genius Deane Jensen (founder of Jensen Transformers) at Indigo Ranch Studio in Malibu, California from 1973 to 2006, the Aengus was purchased and painstakingly restored by Rock Garden Studio in 2012 and has over 100 hit records to its credit. Loaded with legendary Jensen 990 mic preamplifiers and API 550a channel equalizers, the sound of this console is huge, open, clear and beautiful in character, and quite simply has no equal.
