Studio Gearlist

Along with having a comfortable space for artist to create in, the studio gear you use plays a vital role in shaping the sounds you’re going for while keeping a consistent & positive workflow. 

With a relaxed home studio feel the DAW is the centerpiece to the action with outboard gear at an arms distance.  Whether you are recording or spreading out your mixes with the SPL Mixdream summing mixer, combining analog outboard gear with the computer for the best of both worlds has never been easier.

Using Universal Audio Apollo interfaces allows low latency monitoring and Unison processing while recording.  Both UAD interfaces have been I/O & Wordclock modded from Black Lion Audio for extremely clean and clear sound!

With over a variety of 16 individual mic preamps and 8 UAD Unison pres, plus 8 Focusrite Clarett pres, you’ll have a plenty of choices for even your largest recording sessions.  The always expanding microphone collection, the large tracking room and true monitoring on the Barefoot speakers are just a few more reasons that will make Candor Recording your new favorite studio.
