Mackie 8 Bus Mixer Series Mixing Console
At the heart of the operation is the Mackie 24x8 8-Bus Series Mixing Console. Quite possibly the most popular recording console in human history, Mackie 8-Bus consoles have outsold every other mixer in their class. Mackie Designs' series of 32, 24 and 16-channel 8-Bus consoles have set new standards for console quality and high value. Put simply, Mackie's innovative engineering has made it possible to create affordable 8-Bus consoles with better headroom, less noise and more features than models costing twice as much. There are many 8-Bus consoles on the market today, including some that were directly inspired by the Mackie Designs 8-Bus series. If you attempt to compare them solely on the basis of features, you're missing an invisible but key difference: Sound quality. And that's where the 8-Bus Series distances itself from the competition. The Mackie 24/8 is the first affordable console that is being used on major-label album projects worldwide.
Professional-Quality Microphone Preamps
Cimamusic Mix & Mastering uses replicas of highly coveted microphone preamps: the API 3124 and the Neve 1073. In addition, the Focusrite ISA Two, which was designed by Rupert Neve, is another staple in our quality mic pre collection! Capturing a good sound from the start is crucial in ensuring a great mix; and this collection of mic preamps always guarantees a great recording.
The collection of microphones at Cimamusic Mix & Mastering is found at top recording studios around the world. Everything from AKG C414s to Shure SM81s, we have a variety of great microphones to cover pretty much any job – from vocals to drums and from acoustic instruments to screaming electric guitars.
Cimamusic Mix & Mastering records using Pro Tools, but we use Harrison Mixbus 32c for the majority of our mixes. Thanks to the use of high performance computer technology pioneered by Harrison, Mixbus 32c is able to impart a “True Analog” warmth to tracks just by virtue of importing them into a session. Cimamusix Mix & Mastering also has a ton of plugins from top makers such as WAVES, Slate Digital and Softube to provide the most professional-sounding mixes possible.
