Gear List

The Studio

At Resonant Mind, we are particular with the gear we choose to equip our studio. High-end, inspirational sound, modern and vintage, pristine and lo-fi, and rare as well as universally acknowledged brands were all important factors when we constructed our setup. While there are bigger per square foot studios, Resonant Mind is just as - if not more - sonically capable, and thanks to our size we can afford to keep our rates low, and our quality high.

Some pieces of gear worth noting:

The studio itself is a converted industrial space with a mixture of wood walls, concrete floors, and multiple rooms, each with a distinct sound. One of our favourite spaces for sound manipulation is the 30ft stairwell in our building.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about our gear. If you need something specific for your session that is not on our list, we have various rental sources and private gear loan relationships with other studios.
