Studio Technology

Analog vs Digital

Buzz Studio uses a combination of industry leading and custom-designed analog hardware, coupled with a 32-track digital recording system and some of the best sounding digital tools available. Not only that, we are intimately familiar with the sonic characteristics of all the tools we use, whether analog or digital, and know just how and when to use them.
