Studio

Cirrus Oxide is a studio in Oakland, CA designed for recording and producing soundtrack music for film and television. It also serves as an excellent mixing room, with a digital/analog hybrid setup that includes a modular analog console built around a Purple Audio MFTwenty5 discrete analog summing mixer and a variety of 500 series preamps, EQs, and dynamics processors. Additional outboard gear by Daking, TK-Audio, Warm Audio, TC Electronic, and Eventide can be utilized on stereo busses and effects sends. There is also a collection of modular and analog synths that can be used to process sounds or add additional flavors. The digital side features a Mac loaded with Pro Tools, Logic, and a large library of plugins and virtual instruments by Slate, Native Instruments, Izotope, and IK Multimedia. Conversion by Apogee, and monitors by Dynaudio, Blue Sky, and Tannoy.
