We're often asked about the sort of gear and setups we use to create, develop and produce everything from film-score for full blown feature length movies, to 5 minute shorts, to creating background tracks for corporate videos, to sound scoring and sound deign and foley.  

Here is what we use most of the time, though our Instrument Library is constantly expanding in order to find better and brighter sounds to support our projects and our client's needs and dreams.

Many of these (particularly plugins for mix, effects, cleaning) are the same as those used by the big movie studios to get that just right finish to their projects.
