We redesigned our website. Hope you like the new look. We attempted to make everything more modern, readable, and organized. We also future-proofed the site for further expansion. Enjoy
This is a bittersweet kudos for as most of you know, Jeff Healey passed away in March, 2008. We refer you to the following page on the Stoney Plain Records’ website for a well-written overview of Jeff’s life and accomplishments.
For those of you who have been following our three year journey to build a new studio and upgrade our gear, we are pleased to announce that we have finally reached the last item on our list. When we tell our regulars that we are done they chuckle in disbelief, remembering that almost every time they came to the studio in recent times, one of the engineers would be proudly showing them something new and interesting (at least interesting to the engineer!).
Silverbirch Flips Its Desk To Accommodate The Requisite Direct Connection
As our mastering engineer, Andy Krehm, worked his way down to the bottom of the three year upgrade plan he came to the “upgrade wiring” note.
The majority of our mastering work is done in the analog world using class-A tube and solid state gear, an Ampex 1/2″ mastering quality tape deck, coupled with some fine outboard digital units.

Anyone who has worked in pro studios have seen TC Electronic units. Our recently purchased TC Electronic System 6000 is the flagship unit of the company. It has the best sound and the best, most complex algorithms of all the companies’ units. The TC 6000 is a “mainframe” computer, i.e., an outboard unit and therefore, like our other digital units (both Weiss units, the K-Stereo Processor and the Waves L2), operates at full capacity without depending on the power of the computer which runs our audio program.
2003 was a really good year for our studio. Besides keeping busy serving our indie clientele, we worked on more major label projects than in past years.
