Just owning the expensive gear doesn’t ensure that a project will be of the quality one desires, it must be coupled with the knowledge of how to extract the best performance from the equipment and the performer. Nevertheless, high quality gear is essential to making high quality recordings.

Marlowe Studios uses equipment found in some of the the best recording and mastering studios around the world. While the amount of gear may be less in quantity, (I’ve never met an engineer that has “enough”) I’m outfitted with some high-quality gear to help you capture a detailed and accurate recording of your performance. Put away your MiniDisc recorders (although I have one of them too)….
