World’s largest 5.1 mastering console installed at Whitfield Mastering reports that Naweed Ahmed moved his studio, Whitfield Mastering, to Chelsea last year and installed the largest 5.1 mastering console in the world.

He brought in design consultant Nick Whitaker to collaborate on the acoustics of the new facility and worked on the electronic design himself. The Crookwood M1 was custom-designed with the company’s managing director Crispin Herrod-Taylor.

Since 2003, Crookwood has been working with Ahmed, with his initial console one of the company’s M1 stereo consoles, Herrod-Taylor told PSNEurope.
