Studio A Media
For Pro-Tools, there really is no media.
However at some point you will want an 'archive' of your project.
A small quantity of DVD 'blanks' would be perfrect for this, or a multi-GB hard drive (firewire)
For the Alesis ADAT media we recommend:
HHB 20 bit ADAT tape
Remember - you'll need one ADAT tape per 8 tracks...i.e. 24 tracks requires 3 ADAT tapes...)
We run CDs or CD-RWs of your mixes, we recommend:
TDK 12x CDRs. Or any high quality CDR.
We can usually supply these...
We can also mix on DAT media, and we recommend:
Ampex, Maxell, BASF - (various lengths)
Studio B uses high bit rate Garage Band. Again, to backup
files, a small quantity of DVD's is recommended.
Our "newest" Studio C is our portable - mobil recording set-up
We use the Roland VS 18-24 - 24 bit (48khz or 44.1khz) recording workstation!
This is a great set-up for live recording as well as smaller overdubbing projects
We bring all the equipment to your arena or house.
We supply headphones and microphones to use, you supply the talent and your own instruments.
We bring the set-up back to our studio to make mixes and CD copies.
Good for Christmas albums, reunion jams, party jams, holiday get togethers...
FUN AND VERY HIGH QUALITY.

*tweezing - A "clubhouse" term:
The art of massaging audio and generally
making it a little bit better 'n the rest!!
Sometimes known as "twizzling and tweezing"
"We were in the studio last night til' 1 in the
morning twizzling and tweezing the mixes."
