Studio 

Quiet and secluded, yellow DOG is beautiful beyond words and is filled with boutique and vintage recording gear, instruments and amplification. The strengths of both vintage and modern recording techniques are embraced... the warmth and separation of audio recordings on tape is undeniable when coupled with a classic analog signal path and the storage of audio in a pristine digital format is very efficient and cost effective. yellow DOG has seamlessly coupled the best of both mediums. 

Centered around a fully analog 32 channel Trident 88 console and a Sony/MCI JH24 2"/24 track analog tape machine linked to Pro Tools 12 via an Endless Analog CLASP,  the benefits of to analog tape are realized with storage, editing and playback coming from the digital realm... eliminating the heavy expense of magnetic tape from the project budget.
