While it's become so common for artists to use small digital home studios to cut costs, my studio is built to provide my clients the sound of classic analog equipment by using a combination of modern digital conveniences and lots of the industry standard analog favorites.

Without the crazy high costs.

Gear definitely  isn't everything, but using top shelf gear to record will absolutely speed up getting your songs the sounds you've heard on hit records for years.
