Special Effects

In the purely analog days of mixing, the hardest part of any project was recalling everything, but today, that problem has been solved thanks to computers and newer technology. If you have found yourself wondering how we made a certain reverb, delay, distortion, etc., be sure to contact us today! We will make sure that you have the right plugins to duplicate it, and if you do, it's just a small fee of $2 to get access to that effect chain!

Contact our staff with any questions.
