PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT | STUDIO EQUIPMENT

THE GEAR LIST

We are fairly well equipped but our guiding philosphy is that equipment serves as nothing more than the tools used in the creation and execution of sound designs. No sound design program should be judged on the level of production equipment but inevitably the question of gear is always asked. What is state-of-the-art one day is sound history the next. Here's our museum!
