Although it can be interesting, educational and very occasionally vital to know, it is important to remember that a gear list is just a list of tools available.
We can perform pure digital processing both in and out the box. Pure analogue processing is also available, with quarter inch reel to reel at either side (and everything in between).
The studio is built around an “open ended” design, so any signal can go in any direction and in any order. We believe this gives the client and engineer absolute flexibility in approach to the audio.
The most important piece of gear, and what really makes or breaks a project is the engineer.
