The studio’s chosen equipment draws influence from Jamaican sound system & dub music culture. It incorporates both traditional hardware such as an analog mixer, turntables, a microphone, reverb & delay pedals, and a dub siren – as well as newer digital gear like MIDI controllers, vinyl emulation, CDJs, and live streaming technology. This arrangement allows for the capture and sharing of unique performances and creative expression.
