RED PLANET STUDIOS

 

My music production studio is based around an analogue 32 channel Toft ATB mixing console with Dynaudio BM15A monitors and SSL MX convertors, which alow me to work in a very flexible manner for recording, mixing and mastering. The studio is split into two rooms, one for mixing and control, and a second room for performance, vocals and overdub recording.

 

I own a number of fantastic microphones and analogue processing units, as well as licenses for many of the best software processing tools.
