Mind's Eye Digital Recording Studio uses the best gear available!
We use microphone preamps by Aurora Audio, API, Neve, and Martech.
We use Focal Twin Monitors with the Focal Twin Subwoofer for excellent mixes that translate to any audio playback system!
We use compressors and limiters by Universal Audio, RJR, Pendulum, Retro, and Legacy Lab.
We use SSL A/D and D/A converters and Pro Tools for recording your audio at the highest level of quality.
We use microphones by Neumann, Bock Audio, Telefunken, AEA, Schoeps, AKG, Sennheiser, Miktek, Shure, and Audix
We use the best plugins money can buy...Waves, FabFilter, Slate Digital, Massey, Native Instruments, and literally hundreds more.
Finally our prize possession is the Lafont Chroma 40 Mixing Console. Its basically an SSL but film version. Made for mixing only, which is all we use it for. Larry purchased this board from George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch, it mixed a ton of killer movies before Mind's Eye got it, including Saving Private Ryan, Titanic, and all of the Pixar Movies up through Cars 2. Now it makes amazing sounding records!
Larry is the only one in the world with this mic. It's basically a brand new Neumann U67. Mind's Eye Digital hired David Bock of Bock Microphones to build it. It's a NOS 1960s Neumann u67 capsule, u67 transformer, and NOS Telefunken EF86 tube. It runs on the same voltage as the U67 as well. It's essentially a 1960's U67 but brand new in a Bock E47 Body. If you're not in to gear all you need to know is it sounds fantastic and you can only record through one here at Mind's Eye Digital ;).
