At Littlecombe Studios we strive on analogue. However digital files are what’s needed for the modern age, so we convert AD/DA with our Focusrite Saffire 56 interface. When paired with the Focusrite OctoPre Mkii it allows for seamless 28 channel digital or 16 channel analogue recording. Although we record to digital, we still mix with tape! (when it’s requested)

Although we strive for a warm coloured sound we can also create the crisp ‘up to date’ sound that is expected from modern digital recordings.
By bypassing our valve hardware compressor and parametric EQ’s we can create a very clear ‘untreated’ sound by keeping the signal path very minimal and using digital effects. We can also mix and master to these expected results by using our digital suite.
