MUSIC PRODUCTSAKG Acoustics: They must be doing something right. We've got a bunch of their mics and headphones around the studio.
Alesis: We recorded a lot of the Eco Logic CD and a couple of tracks on Burning Blue with the ADATs. We're still getting good use out of their Midiverb and we're drumming up support for the D4.

Antares: Now you can get perfect pitch in a box.
Apogee Digital: Home to A/D and D/A converters and mic preamps. We like the number 24 more than just a little bit.
Apogee Sound International: It's the A&E network. Amplify and equalize.

Grandma's Music and Sound: In the world of music equipment, Micky Patten has put Albuquerque on the map. Sure, I have a lot of friends working there, but you can't find a more savvy and musical staff anywhere.
Ilio: Life is complicated enough. Samplify.
Joemeek: Joe was the famous 60s producer who had severe depression, but these Joemeeks have severe compression.

Roland: Roland, Roland, Roland, keep those dogies rollin. What haven't they got? Well, we got the digital reverb for one.
Savarez: Our choice for nylon strings when we're in a Spanish or classic mood. I can see the sparks of fire as they jump out and dance.
Sennheiser: Listen to us. We love their headphones. Are you listening?
Shure: If you look up the word microphone in the thesaurus, you'll probably find Shure.
Sonorus: 2 bits, 4 bits, 8 bits a dollar. Give me 3 dollars and the 24-bit converter series.

Steinberg: The Cubase is our mothership; the brains of the operation.
