Studio Crash Equipment List

Available Studio Gear

The thing that really sets Studio Crash apart from the competition is the building itself. The size and shape, and underlying construction really makes a huge improvement over what you could get in a smaller studio or home studio. We also have a great assortment of high end microphones and outboard preamps to record through.

Our control room has Pro Tools HD3 Accell hardware, with a list of top-end plug-ins too long to list all individually. We have Genelec studio monitors with subs, and dual 21" computer monitors to speed up the editing and mixing process. Our Control Room features a 24 fader Focusrite - Digidesign control surface with touch sensitive, motorized faders. This enables speedier and more intuitive mixing.

Here’s a detailed list of individual pieces. When you see a “(2X)”, that means there are two of them. “(4X)” means there are four.
