Pieces of gear we cannot live without
If we had to describe our workday
Philosophy or reasoning behind gear choices
Since our studio works with varied engineers and producers it does get quite hard to find the gear that appeals to everyone. We have a very simple process for bringing in new gear into the studio, we test it meticulously in recording scenarios and have an internal discussion with our engineers if it really adds value and fits for the kind of work the studio brings in.
