Tools

I run a hybrid digital/analogue mastering chain in an acoustically treated room (treatment and plan designed by Ethan Winer of Real Traps). My mixing and mastering tools include a full suite of professional mastering software and a collection of solid state and tube analog compressors and EQs and high-end AD/DA conversion. This palette can provide intense, euphonic coloration to utter sonic transparency, depending on project needs.
