Our “old school” application combined with our technological dexterity gives whatever project we are working on the highest chance of success. We specialize in developing a bands “sound” and “releasing” songs through creative vision and a close working relationship with our artists. Midi application and composition is being used more and more in every day life. From major top selling tracks on the radio, to television advertisement score music. It gives any promising composers a complete orchestra or band at their fingertips to do as they please. Our powerful mixing desk Allen&Heath GS-R24 is modern industry classic. Logic X or ProTools
