The 36 Hertz Mastering studio is centered around our vintage Hill audio remix console. This rare and highly sought after British designed and built console brings a classic analogue sound that no other studio can offer. Our analogue signal chain features mostly valve circuit EQ's and Compression to bring warmth to our work.
The ethos behind the studio build was vintage with as much of our equipment being purchased for a vintage analogue sound. We favor old skool techniques with a modern twist for our trademark sound.
We like to offer the best of both worlds with every option available for audio treatment from classic options such as Reel to Reel and DAT through to modern digital standards. No matter what your project we can get the exact sound you are looking for with a studio built to create analogue warmth that no one else can emulate.
