The studio uses Ableton Live almost exclusively these days, which is perfect or drones, tension cues and orchestral hybrids as well as electronic inductrial and also for acoustic and band projects. Studiodawgs specialises in singer-songwriter projects and recording promo CD's. We don't do video - as yet!
