Our main hard-disk recording / MIDI sequencing applications are Steinberg Cubase 8.5 and AVID Pro Tools 12. We use iZotope Studio RX2 Advanced for spectral editing / sound restoration and Presonus StudioOne 2.5 for CD and DDP mastering.

High quality sound processing is provided by DSP plugins running on the UAD-2 Quad and UAD-1 cards (the best from Universal Audio, Neve, API, Lexicon, EMT, AKG, Ampex, Pultec, Fairchild, SPL, Manley Empirical Labs, Moog, Roland, etc.) and a large collection of native plugins (Slate Digital, Valhalla, Nomad Factory, PSP Audio, Waves, FabFilter, iZotope, Antares, GRM, Spectrasonics, Native Instruments, etc.).

HD video editing and DVD authoring ir provided by Sony Vegas Pro 11.0 and DVD Architect 5.2. Our graphic suite of choice for CD/DVD booklet layout & design is CorelDRAW X7.
