Over the years, we've received many kind words from artists and professionals who have made our products an essential part of their workflows. Here's some of what they had to say:
"a few years ago i made my first DIYRE piece. it was one of the most relaxing and meditative times i can remember. my soldering was appalling, my boards were a mess but damn, the boxes sounded fantastic. over time i got better at making them, and i also got a little neater but not by much. i have my rack filled with these ingeniously designed units. i love them. peterson is a patient and nurturing gent which can be a rare thing in the tech world. he’s helped my out when i was scratching my head misreading obvious and clear instructions. brilliant gear. brilliantly designed. fun to make."

"A Colour Palette stocked with two Tonelocs and a 15IPS are amazing on drums. I just mixed a song with the Colours and this setup was perfect on a mono drum mic."

"As a mixer that works almost exclusively in the box, there are some tracks that need the warmth, glue, and spacing that only analog can offer. When I run my mix through the SB2 paired with CP5s loaded with Rogue-tec Airs, I get that great low-mid presence that I'm looking for along with airy highs and a great stereo image. Other analog summing always made me feel like something was changed in the balance of my mix, but the SB2 gives me the analog enhancements I'm looking for without sacrificing anything. I currently have this setup replacing summing units in my home room at Lounge Studios NYC worth over $10k combined."

"I been using the EQP5 a lot lately and really dig how smooth it is. There isn't really a bad place for it. Any place I've used it, it helps. It doesn’t feel all phase shifty like some EQs do when you crank on them. I have to check that it’s in because it’s so natural sounding. It’s definitely in. Natural as f*ck. The EQP5 is a legit tool regardless of cost. I use this along side my Lang and Pultecs."

"Even a little bit of the 15IPS adds a warm vibe and a huge low end. Just switching it in can thicken up a kick drum, bass or even a whole mix. With more drive, 15IPS gives a great saturated tape-like squash."
