Throughout the 1960s, EMI’s Abbey Road recording studios were at the forefront of sound recording innovation. Their Record Engineering Development Department (REDD) was responsible for designing the REDD.51 valve mixing consoles that were in use from 1964 to 1968, and used to record most of The Beatles’ classic albums, including Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the ‘White Album’. The REDD.51 was a replacement for the similar REDD.37, the main difference being the type of line amplifiers that the consoles utilised. The earlier consoles employed Siemens V72S amplifiers, while the modernised REDD.51 contained the in-house-designed REDD.47. For the full REDD.51 story, read our Studio Icons feature on the MusicTech website.
