Analog and Digital Hybrid Processing with Hyper Accurate Playback

Below you can see the equipment I rely on in my studio. With extensive testing, I've found that implementing choice analog processing with my digital workstation gets me the results I desire quickly. This means mixes come together faster, allowing me to spend more time on creative choices rather than technical ones. I also rely on my excellent room and monitoring to ensure accurate playback, so I know exactly what I'm doing to the sound.
