Advantages of working with HudSonic

House of Nagra and SADiE 

Nagra-Kudelski and its successor, 

Audio-Technology Switzerland, make  highly desirable recorders. We have owned one of every machine made since 1981.

Currently we use the Nagra VI and the Nagra Seven. The British music editor SADiE from PrismSound has been our companion for many decades. 

MAGIX Sequoia editor is also used here.

Sonosax provides the Highest Dynamic Range at 135dB.

Sonosax (Swiss) supplies mind blowing sound recorders and mic preamplifiers. Here we use the Sonosax SX-R4+ recorder, 
the SX-AD8+ eight channel mic amp and a/d converter, and the new M2D2 portable preamp / a/d converter, 
dac, sound card.

Rens Heijnis Custom Built

The Dutch electronics genius, Rens Heijnis,  builds incredible sounding microphones and preamps. His 60 volt designs offer more nuance, more detail, more dynamics, and better defined bass in our recordings.  

We know all the best locations to record in. 

Great musicianship and innovative programming sound best in the best halls. We know all of them and have business relationships with all the managers.
