Our Gear

Everything we use here has been selected or modified with great care and scrutiny, affording a wide range of treatments for a wide range of music. Whether transparent corrections or euphonic enhancements, our goal is to deliver your listeners the best possible presentation of your tracks. 

We’re proud of our gear, but we know our most powerful tools are our ears. We don’t have a “default” processing scheme, and only use what we think will serve each project’s creative intent. Our studio’s accurate acoustics and our ME-Geithain monitors are the most essential elements in our arsenal. They allow us to decide what, if any processing is needed, and to know definitively when we’ve got it right.
