The website, which launched almost a year ago, is an innovative way of monetizing audio equipment to a global music community. It enables members to send audio files to others for remote processing through authentic gear for a small fee. 

“We’ve created a really easy way for people to get access to experienced ears and great gear from anywhere in the world,” says founder and fellow mixing engineer Stephen Bartlett. 

“We’ve got 100% customer satisfaction on all of our bookings to date, and so we’re offering free processing to all new members to give anyone the chance to hear the difference,” added Bartlett. 

Gear on offer for free, to name a few, includes: Studer A80, Neve 32087 Vintage Analog Mastering EQ, API 2500 analog quad VCA bus compressor and Thermionic Culture Phoenix valve (vari-mu) analog compressor, operated by the experience of the likes of Matt Gray (Giorgio Moroder, Cody Simpson, Alli Simpson) among others.

To those wondering or debating about the benefits of real gear over the use of digital plugins in comparison to quality, CIO and co-founder James Morrell insists that this misses the point. 

“The purpose of is not to advocate for the use of one over the other, it’s simply to give people a choice that didn’t previously exist,” he says. 

“You can achieve a great mix in the box and you can get a great mix using outboard gear. What we want to do is connect people to experienced ears, help people find ways to use gear they wouldn’t have otherwise had access to and ultimately empower people to create recorded music in the way they want to,” Morrell added.
