The equipment list includes microphones by AKG, Crown, Shure and Joe Meek; outboard gear by Lexicon, dbx, Bellari, Sennheiser, AKG, Digitech, Symetrix, BBE, Alesis, Yamaha, Tascam, Philips and M-Audio; software by Sony, Abbey Road, Steinberg, Focusrite, Antares, SSL, Adobe, Waves, Bias, Reason, Diamond Cut and Minnetonka; and the TC Electronic Finalizer hardware mastering system. Also available: a Kimball baby grand piano (specially-prepared for recording), 12-string acoustic guitar, a vintage Epiphone Casino electric guitar, two vintage synthesisers (Korg DW-8000 and Roland D-50, with a host of extra sound cards for the latter and a vintage Proteus One module for either), an easily moveable vocal booth and a host of assorted small hand percussion and wind instruments.
