We take pride in our large and ever-growing collection of gear. Every element of the studio has been painstakingly selected based on sound quality and vibe through strenuous blind listening tests, not through hype and hear-say. 

A true hybrid of analog and digital technologies gives everyone at The MPL a vast palette of sounds with incredible flexibility.
