Brandon Productions

Studio

Our hybrid recording studio is build around an SSL Matrix2 console and a ProTools HDX system.  Leveraging vintage preamps, EQs, dynamics and microphones, the system works seamlessly across the analog and digital domains.   Preparation and performance is the key to success, but it doesn't hurt to have the right tools in the bag to capture the performance.
