: : : : THE HELM : : : :

The interface at Woodcrest's helm is hybrid. Woodcrest features a boutique analogue front end into mastering grade analogue to digital converters. This enables us to capture the sought after analogue sound with no typical artifacts associated with digital recording. Thereafter, automation is written via the control surfaces. Stems and solo tracks are piped back out to analogue devices for their glue and character, and digital processing is done as well using top plugins like Universal Audio and Sonnox. Woodcrest also has gigs of sample libraries for use midi devices and midi material.

: : : : THE MICROPHONES : : : :

Above are a few of Woodcrest's favorite ears. There are over 40 microphones in our closet for matching a source's sound properties to what we want to hear coming out of the speakers in a mix. This microphone selection allows us to sculpt the overall tonal quality of any source's sound like an EQ but without the smearing and phase shifts EQs impart on sound.

This allows custom tailoring of sound on a per genre, per song, per instrument basis, allowing ultimate flexibility in creating tone of a song.
