The Summit Audio DCL-200 compressor adds class to any audio that passes through it, it has that certain something that only high end analogue audio equipment achieves. The eq is also a phenomenal piece of equipment, it has the perfect balance of flexibility and sounds great in every eq band, something that not all quality equalizers can manage, this ups the ante in terms of quality and value for my existing and prospective clients."
SafeandSound Mastering is in a unique position in the audio mastering market, competition has a difficult time keeping up with the quality and pricing on offer in part because the studio offers a free mastering preview. The vast majority of people who try the free mastering preview then become clients, it's a great way to hear the quality of mastering on offer. Gardner continues:
Additionally the studio is demoing new high end DSP and making some critical choices on what products to choose. There are many software items to sift through and the studio is confident that it will be employing only the finest selection of digital tools available.
"The online mastering model has a few rogue operators, this is no secret, there are many text and graphics based websites popping up that have no clients list, no engineering experience history and no photo's of the mastering speakers and equipment. By installing this new equipment and proudly displaying photo's on the website people can see SafeandSound Mastering is the real deal. Musicians and producers are wise and know the difference between a professional and a beginner."
