Glyph was built from the ground up as a true hybrid analog/digital studio. 24 channels of DAW faders provide a hands-on experience without the compromises of having a large-format console where, in a modern studio, the DAW should really be. Two ultrawide monitors provide a complete meter bridge for all 48 input and output channels, a 1/3 octave spectrum analyzer, goniometer, level meters, and plenty of room for plugins and synths.
Instead of channel strips, all of the most critical bus processing is located right in front of you as you sit at the desk, making it easy to dial in exactly the sound you want. No need to lean over backwards to try and get one ear in the sweet spot as you adjust a 2-bus EQ or compressor in a rack on the other side of the room. Preamps and additional outboard gear is located in 3 wing racks to the side of the desk, in easy reach.
The left side of the desk contains most of the stereo bus compressors and mastering chain. UBK/Empirical Labs Fatso, TK BC-1mk2 (SSL G bus compressor clone) and API 2500 compressors all work great on drum bus and 2-bus. The Ridge Farm Boiler ultra-compressor does amazing things to drum overheads and room mics. The UBK Clariphonic and BBE Sonic Maximizer let you put some final polish on your track.
