At Baseline Audio I have very carefully selected the equipment used in our mastering chains, and when necessary customized features that may not have been available on the original device. Mastering equipment is very personal to the mastering engineer who uses it and what may work excellent for one may not be the right piece for another….
Playback can be analog or digital and mastering may be done completely in the digital or analog domain or a combination of the two.
We use many familiar names including software and hardware by: SADiE, Sony, Digidesign, Waves, TC Electronic, Cranesong, Manley, Z-Systems, Dunlavy, MCI, Studer, Ampex, Mytek and others.
For conversion from analog tapes, we are able to cover nearly every format from 1/8″ to 2″ in nearly every conceivable track count from mono to 24 track. A multitude of noise reduction decoding is also available.
Many formats of digital tape can also be played back for mastering or conversion, such as R-DAT, ADAT, DA-88, A-DAM, etc.
