Digital Audio Co CD mastering room



 We are based in purpose-built premises, overlooking the beautiful Aire Valley in Skipton, North Yorkshire, close to the towns of Leeds and Bradford. Studio design is by Recording Architecture. The main sound studio features include ATC 5.1 monitoring (surround) and a spacious voice booth. There is a second control room for preparation work (ATC main monitors, PMC surround monitors), central apparatus room (CAR), and client area. Control rooms are silent as noisy equipment is kept in the CAR. A full facilities list is given below.

 Wherever possible work is done entirely in the digital domain, although analogue processing is available when appropriate. Precision analogue to digital and digital to analogue converters are used and machines are locked to a high stability master reference clock. True digital wiring is used throughout and digital distribution amplifiers ensure signal integrity.
