Gears

This is not exactly the kind of gear we’re talking about but when so much of it has passed through your life it takes on a different character than it has when you’re a fresh-faced lad with a few bucks to spend.

I have to admit that I was resistant to writing this page.  I didn’t want to give my competition the knowledge I’ve gathered over the years by study, investing in equipment, and a lot of learning curves.

But I think a lot of recording studio shoppers are interested in what we currently record, mix, and master with so I am going to lay it all out.  This project may take a while, but I’m up for the task because I use the equipment and software every day.  By breaking things down into smaller pieces, I can show you what hardware combinations I like to use and how they affect the bottom line, namely the sound.

Because sound is what we’re chasing.  We want your recording to weep, scream, narrate, rock out, or twang, or whatever it’s supposed to do and make that operation as transparent as possible to you.  And in order to make those sounds your engineer needs to make the correct choices; some of it is as mundane as mic choice but even the right mic will not save your recording if it is in the wrong place and not preamped properly.  So, yes, it is possible to make bad recordings with good equipment!

I am going to separate this section of the website into categories as much as possible.  I will tell you the unvarnished truth about each piece of gear that I list.  I may even put up audio samples to illustrate how this all comes together to make your recordings sing.  We are after the sound, and we will capture it!

Some of our equipment and software includes Fireface UFX, Focusrite ISA 428 and OctoPre, Art Tube Opto8 and TubePAC , Allen & Heath CMC24, Otari MX5050 SHT, Michael Joly modded mics, Shure, Audio-Technica, Sony, Crown, JBL 4410, Sonar Platinum, Melodyne Studio,  Sony Vegas Pro 13, Sony CD and DVD Architect 5.2,  Voxengo, DDMF, Mogami, and the list goes on.  It will all be discussed and your feedback is welcomed.
