Complete Music Production Under One Roof

The main recording room has a large door that makes it very accessible and easy to load in your own gear. The control room is also a great recording space.

Samplitude.

The software I use for recording, mixing and mastering - is renowned for having one of the most “analog” sounding mix engines, and is combined with many of the acclaimed high quality vintage effects by Universal Audio and Waves. Samplitude was originally designed as a mastering program so great attention was paid to phase coherence, comprehensive plug in delay compensation and with industry standard metering and stellar editing features has made it ideal for mixing-to-master.

Here is a qoute about Samplitude (Sequioa and Samplitude are the same digital mix platform) by a noted industry producer David Kahne. David Kahne has not only worked with those perennial big names such as Bruce Springsteen, Curtis Mayfield and Paul McCartney, but also mixes at the cutting edge of today's newest generation of music makers and breakers. These include the likes of The Strokes, Regina Spektor, New Order and Imogen Heap.

"I've used all the software that I know of, including Logic, Digital Performer, ProTools, and Nuendo, and the Sequoia software tops them all. What I've been looking for is software that compensates for latency in plug-ins and bussing and mix down. When I got used to Sequoia enough to get a mix going, I compared it to all the software I'd been working with over the last years I used a drum kit that I'd recorded on tape and had digitized.

I did mixes using 3 other products, using multiband compressors and eq's in the same configuration in all the mixes. I did the same mix in Sequoia. When I compared mixes, I was astonished. The bottom, the imaging, the apparent level - every element of the mix _ was superior in Sequoia. My first reaction was to feel like I had mixed off tape. I heard no phasing whatsoever in the Sequoia mix. All the bells and whistles aside in all the different products, what I really wanted was a mix that stays intact phase-wise. And I've found that in Sequoia.” — David Kahne
