Studio Equipment

 

Below is a list of equipment we use here at K-Effect Mastering Studio. Our hardware range goes from analogue heavy weights Shadow Hills,  and Maselec, to synthesizers ranging from Arturia, Korg and Technics. When “mixing down in the box”, we offload all plugins to DSP and make use of the great plugins Waves have provided via the UAD Quad Pcie Cards, with names such as Ampex, API and Trident to name a few. We are always looking to improve our setup and have added a new pair of ATC monitors, Dangerous Bax Eq, SPL Twintube, and an Bus Compressor.
