What else needs to be said? This is the workhorse of any professional recording studio!

 

OUTBOARD GEAR
Warm Audio WA73

The WA73 pays homage to the revered British console lineage that started it all. Throughout the audio industry, the 1073 is considered the holy grail of preamps, with a rich, sweet, and bold tonality that's ideal for making audacious statements with your music.

 

 

Warm Audio WA-2A

Like the original classic unit, the WA-2A gives you a completely discrete signal path and the same arrangement of controls. And yes, it replicates the original's coveted warm sound and forgiving nature.

Apogee Rosetta 200

All tracking is done in analog but there needs to be some kind of conversion for our audio before it enters the digital world to be mixed...and this is where the apogee comes in handy

MONITORING
Adam-A7

How your projects sound in our studio should sound the same no matter where else it is played (cars, phones, live shows, etc) and we achieve this with our monitors. Punchy bass, solid mids, and crisp highs

SOFTWARE
Windows 10 + Protools 12

With this operating system we have the advantage of editing and processing our audio "live", which allows us to work faster to add effects or breakdowns live as you are still recording.

 

Plugins

Mcdsp, waves, ddmf, digidesign, massey...and many more
