You can see from the equipment
list and photos
we are well equipped. The studio features an impressive selection
of vintage tube amps, a Hammond B3 with Leslie 147, an 1890 Steinway
Grand Piano, and several styles of electric guitars as well as a
Martin acoustic guitar. The drums were personally recommended by
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Hal Blaine. It is a marvelous
Pearl studio kit with Zildjian cymbals. How much or little you want
or need to use our instruments and amplification is open to negotiation.
They’re there, they work, and they sound great.
For recording, we use a Power Mac G5 with Pro Tools HD and have
with ProControl mixing surface with 24 flying faders. We also have
a Studer 24 track 2" tape machine for those who would prefer
to use tape (or are in need of tape transfer). For analog and digital
conversion, we use a Digidesign 192 and an Apogee DA16x as well
as an Apogee AD16x. We have an SPL Mix Dream Model 2384 Class A
Mix System to maximize the advantage using both digital and analog
mediums for recording and mixing. Our outboard processing features
2 classic Teletronix LA2A and 2 Universal Audio 1176 Tube Compressors.
The list of Pro-Tools plug-ins and related software tools is comprehensive
and better discussed than listed.
For mic preamps we use api 3124+, Grace, Great River and OSA, as
well as a Focusrite Liquid Channel.
