"Superb technology in the service
of musical expression"
We provide the most “musical” sounding digital technology, DSD and DXD for all our recordings. These formats enable us to record, edit and master for any CD replication such as conventional CD; Super Audio CD (SACD) featuring high-definition stereo, high-definition 5.1 surround sound, and conventional 44.1kHz CD; DVD-A or any future consumer format. Depending on the final product, we can select from any sampling and bit rate, and we are equipped to transfer between a multitude of digital and analog formats.
At Ultimo Productions we utilize only high-end tube and solid state microphones in a variety of configurations such as Blumlein technique, Decca tree, and the more common A-B and X-Y setup.
In general, we adhere to the “less is better” approach, with properly positioned microphones and very little or no manipulation of the original signal path.
