SECOND HILL STUDIO  

Console, Recorders, Monitors and Repro:
 
While we are well equipped to make records entirely in the analog realm, we can easily transition to and incorporate the world of Pro Tools and all of the advantages that it offers.
With Pro Tools locked to the 24 track, there is a minimum 56 tracks of discrete audio outputs.
From front-end to mixdown, our analog gear is quite useful in enhancing a project recorded to digital media. Just ask Humberto Gatica...
