Totally awesome high end eq.

Remember if your going to put your clean digital audio thru an analog stage, the analog components need to be of the highest quality or you’re degrading your sound.

Totally awesome product. One of the must haves!!!

About Francis Buckley.

With a background in music from childhood and recording experience extending back to the early 1970’s, Grammy Award winning Engineer/Producer Francis Buckley has been making records for over 20 years. His experience ranges from the groundbreaking punk act Black Flag’s first album “Damaged” in 1980, to winning the Engineering Grammy Award in 1996 for “Q’s Jook Joint” with Quincy Jones. Francis’ contributions as engineer and mixer to such multi-platinum recordings as The Pointer Sisters’ “Breakout”, Paula Abdul’s “Forever Your Girl”, Wilson Phillips’ “Wilson Phillips”, Alanis Morisette’s “Jagged Little Pill, Quincy Jones’ “Q’s Jook Joint,” and many others, have helped to sell over 100 million-plus records worldwide.

Francis began producing while acting as chief engineer at W.E. Studios in Redondo Beach in 1979. In 1980 he became chief engineer for Unicorn Records and worked with many different acts including Black Flag. In 1981 he moved to MCA Music Publishing, beginning a 10 year stand as Director of Recording Services. It was at MCA that he met producer Glen Ballard, with whom he shared a 14 year partnership.

Now, aside from doing session work, Francis has been concentrating on the lost art of artist-development. Francis is working with singer/songwriters Noel, Tod McLeod and Michael Buckley, Lap-Pop Artist “Lo-Fi Sugar”, Soul/Rock group “The Underground Railroad” and the funkiest thing to ever come out of Mexico “Pilaseca” as well as many Film, TV and Commercial spots.

Currently working on establishing a new force in the entertainment industry
