Sure, we’ve got a bitchin’ ProTools / Logic rig and mountains of software, but that stuff is second fiddle to our world-class analogue Neve console. We’ve also sprinkled in some tape machines, tasty vintage outboard gear and mics to round out the package. If we don’t have it in-house already we’ll try to get it for your session, just ask.
