tech prospectus

We utilize over 150 microphones including some of the finest high-end devices, specialized hand-made boutique tools, and off-the-shelf devices that have been completely rebuilt. All of these microphone solutions have been made to solve diverse audio production needs at a rational cost and not to reflect name-brand recognition or mythological reputations. In some cases there is actually nothing left inside some of our microphones (capsules, circuits, ribbons, tubes, and transformers) that were provided by the original manufacturer. They have been completely rebuilt with just the outside casing left to provide a convenient armature to hold the select high-end components inside.

We also have over 50 channels of select outboard microphone preamps, multiple high-end converters, and dozens of unique transducer systems, microphone mounts, cabling solutions, specialized sensor technologies, monitors, vintage formats, analog summing devices, mixers, PA systems, and computer software. We select tools that work for the intended purpose with minimal complication and not because of fashion or hype. Emphasis is placed on solutions appropriate for all manner of location, field, and research recording projects.

Post-production tools include a large selection of analog signal processing and digital software. DAW (digital audio workstation) packages include: Sequoia, iZotope, Reaper, Adobe Audition, Audiomulch, Logic, and over a hundred diverse plugins.
