A few years ago Ozzy Osbourne built his first ever home recording studio. Checkout what studio gear he put in it - this is the stuff dreams are made of.

The studio has a red and black motiff. The studio is builkt around Pro Tools - an HD3 system with 48 channels of input and output. Ozzy's choice of input modules were coveted Neve modules. All wiring is Monster Cable, using Neutrik Black Gold connectors. All signal — analog, digital, and word clock — is routed through the custom-made patch bays. Pro Tools is controlled using a Digidesign Control 24 built into an Argosy console enclosure.

The monitoring in the studio was originally going to be Yamaha NS10M's (a classic) powered by Bryston 4B amplifiers. This setup wasn't loud enough and Ozzy eventually moved to Genelec 1038B monitors on stands with a 7071 sub.

Other tech choices include Lexicon 960L and TC Electronic System 6000 multichannel processors, Digidesign PRE 8-channel mic preamps, Brent Averill-modified Neve mic pre/EQs, and a closet full of Shure, AKG, and Neumann microphones.
