» Our studio is equipped with a Protools 7.2 HD-3 system running on an Apple PowerPC G5, clocked by an Apogee Big Ben, using an Apogee AD-16X, a DA-16X and a Digidesign 192 converters for up to 24 channels of inputs and outputs. A Digidesign ProControl is our work surface, and a Crane Song Avocet takes care of the monitor switching and talkback.

» For monitoring, we have Yamaha NS-10s with a subwoofer for nearfields, along with Dynaudio Air 6s. For midfields, we have Dynaudio Air 25s, along with an AirBase 24 as the subwoofer. For cue sends, we have a Hear system which allows up to 4 different 8-channel cue mixes, which can each be mixed independently of each other by each listener.

» We have 48 tielines in the live room and an array of different preamps and signal processors, which are all wired to a TT patchbay. Below you can view our detailed list of equipment.
