Digital Audio Workstation
Intel-based, custom built PC capable of manipulating 200 simultaneous audio
tracks. The primary recording software we employ is Steinberg's Cubase SX, which provides amazing flexibility and power.
Analog/Digital Converters (2)
Our system uses two M-Audio Delta 1010 A/D converters. The Delta 1010s
provide 16 analog inputs, each of which is sampled to a resolution of 16,777,215
levels of signal, 96,000 times every second. All
this number-crunching translates to one thing: superior audio
quality. The Delta 1010 uses a discrete breakout box which contains all
audio connectors and the A/D conversion hardware. This eliminates RF noise
generated by the PC for the lowest possible noise floor, so you can take full
advantage of the dynamic range of the system.
Mixing Desk with integral preamps
Our primary mixing board is the Alesis
Studio32. This mixing board allows 16 separate XLR microphone inputs,
each with its own preamp. The preamps of the Studio32 are justly noted for
their clean and transparent sound. The 32 total inputs give
flexibility to accomplish any configuration your project requires.
Outboard processing gear
Although Cubase SX allows us to make editing and processing of audio fast and
easy, sometimes you've got to hook in that one piece of gear to get that certain
special something. We can provide such gear as the following:
Amplifier/Speaker Cabinet Modeler
Dedicated Stereo Chorus
NOTE: This list is constantly expanding, if you have a particular
requirement, please contact us.
The primary vocal mic we use is an Audio-Technica AT3035. This large-diaphragm condenser
mic has a warmth and accuracy that makes for great vocal tracks. This mic
also serves for recording acoustic guitar, as well as an ambient mic when
circumstances require one. Our drums are mic'ed with a mix of Shure,
Oktava and Audix equipment, carefully tuned for maximum performance. The
usual suspects are available for instrument and backup vocal recording; Shure
SM-57 and SM58s.
Normally, musicians have "their" particular instrument or
instruments that create the sound they are looking to record. If you
want to explore other options, we can provide the following:
Guitars - We have an assortment of Fender, Gibson, and
Ibanez electric guitars, Guild, Ovation and Yamaha acoustics, an Ibanez bass,
and even a Dean acoustic bass to help you get where you want to be.
Drums - We have a classic '60s Gretsch 5-piece with Zildjian
cymbals, tuned specifically for our studio, and mic'ed for superb sound.
Keyboards - We have a classic Wurlitzer electric piano, as
well as a Korg M1. We also have access to Hammond equipment.
Software synths and MIDI interfacing are available.
We are here to make you proud of your projects, and we're proud of our
ability to accomplish this. If there's a particular item that your project
requires, please let us know. We always try to be open-minded to new
techniques and ideas, so help us help you succeed.
