Desks & Software
AVID S3 Mixing Desk, AVID HD I/O - Full native integration with Protools HD. Also works great with Cubase and Logic.
Additional Consoles available - TASCAM DM-4800 - 64 x Channel Digital Console/Controller/HUI, Yamaha 16 channel analogue console, Line 6 Stagescape (for location recording)
We are proud to offer you choices of AVID Protools HD Native v12, Steinberg/Yamaha's Cubase 8.5 and Wavelab, Apple's Logic Pro X and a secret armoury of specialised outboard and software. All software is owned and registered by SongCave Studios - no illegal software is used so your precious music will not be watermarked as such.
TIP: Wherever you do decide to record, always ask the owner if they own all their software.
We are also backward compatible should you bring us your own pre-recorded tracks to mix.
AMAZING Mics are available:
Tip: You may have a half decent mic yourself but remember - each one is suited for a different job. No mic is a "one size fits all". Hard mics suit soft voices and soft mics suit hard voices. There are many cheap and "copy" mics out there on the web - from under $100 up to $500 - but until you compare the sound with a top shelf set of mics in acoustically designed rooms like we have you may miss out on some of the fantastic colourations possible.
