The Place…For Mastering was built to deliver pristine sonics and accurate monitoring. The room is a hybrid design of discreet high voltage analog processing combined with an ultra-accurate digital signal path. The two transfer paths can be used exclusive of one another or combined to suit the project passing through them. A minimal amount of high quality cabling is used to keep the signal path short.
All electronic components used at The Place were chosen as part of a larger system. Processors include: SPL, Maselec, Great River, Empirical Labs, Inward Connections, Smart Research, Weiss, Lavry, Cube-Tec, Antelope Audio, Pacific Microsonics and Lavry Engineering.
Analog playback (1/4” & 1/2”) is available from a fully restored ATR Services (Mike Spitz) Ampex ATR-102.
Digital editing is performed on a customized Sequoia Digital Audio Workstation.
Monitoring is via Eggleston Andra I loudspeakers and Pass Labs X-350 amplification.
