The Correct Process
Professional equipment and an experienced engineer are crucial when mixing or mastering, however, what truly gives music its heart is creativity and soul. That's why we've put so much effort into creating a studio workflow that allows and inspires the creative process. We provide hassle and stress free communication which allows each artist to focus on creating the sound they want. In addition to our workflow, studio acoustics play a vital role in getting the best possible sound. Our main suite was designed and tuned to provide the perfect listening environment. This allows us to hear and address subtle imperfections and eq problems that would otherwise go unnoticed.
All audio equipment is not created equal. That's why we spent so much time choosing the correct gear for our studio. Our cables, equalizers, compressors, converters, signal processors, and monitors are all professional class. Our analog and digital mastering equipment has been carefully chosen to compliment the studio and provide outstanding audio fidelity, balanced acoustics, and excellent studio workflow. Our compressors and equalizers include new and vintage Manley, Crane Song, Symetrix, Orban, AudioArts, Universal Audio, Dorrough, and ADR. Our main monitors are Tyler Acoustics D1's, with secondary SS-M7 monitors for reference. We utilize a Bryston solid state amp for our primary system. In addition to speaker reference we use a Grace Design controller and Beyerdynamic DT 770's for headphone referencing. All equipment cables are custom Mogomi for crystal clear signal pass-through. Digital equipment includes a custom built i7 audio workstation and our primary mastering software is based on Sequoia 12 and AudioCube, Flux, and Waves plugins.
