The neutral fabrics, aluminum trim, polished concrete and natural light provide the perfect environment for the creative work of Chief Mastering Engineer Joe Palmaccio. The four-time Grammy winner designed and built the space from the ground up to accommodate his international clientele.

A full complement of analog and digital processing hardware includes Maselec, SPL, Great River, Smart Research, Empirical Labs, Inward Connections, ATR Services, Weiss, Pacific Microsonics and Lavry. A custom-built Sequoia digital audio workstation with processors from Magix, Plugin Alliance, Slate Digital, Nugen, Boz Digital Labs, Sonnox and Waves completes the system.
