Rich past, digitally mastered.

Professional digital audio workstations extract the best of analog, mastering it in clear digital glory.

The magnetic audio revolution starts and ends with open-reel. We still hold it up as the golden standard of what analog audio can be. Thank goodness we can listen to all that hi-fi heaven digitally on crystal-clear thumb drives, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ or CDs. If you ever used a reel-to-reel tape deck, chances are good you have a box of tape reels stashed somewhere. There’s no better time to introduce them to the 21st century. With the help of state-of-the-art digital remastering, you can breathe new life into that classic analog.
