We're very happy to have turned our facility into an art gallery for the 5th annual Frogtown Artwalk to showcase some amazing local artists and show our new space.

Special thanks to Remy Bernot for organizing and curating the show and to all the artists for their efforts and fantastic art work.

Our vinyl pressing machine was treated (as it should) as one of the art pieces in the show, and the one we got the most questions about.

We have decided to have our opening party coincide with the annual Frog Town Art Walk on August 28th, 2010.

We get a lot of questions about this, and as musicians and perfectionists, we're very specific about how we like the pre-masters delivered, so we can ensure the best possible sound for our client's music.

Pre-masters should be exported or bounced with no compression or limiting on the master bus. It is also important to drop your peak level 2db below the digital zero, in order to allow us to do any stereo level adjustment before applying EQ, compression and limiting. This is especially important when mastering for vinyl, where a slight difference in left and right levels can greatly affect the quality of the groove being cut.

We recommend that you work on your final mix with slight compression or limiting in order to preview the mastered sound, but export your premasters without those effects.

As musicians and producers, aside from being audio engineers, we take extra care of all the details that will make your music sound its best. Welcome to Capsule Labs!

We're proud to announce the launch of our new website. We've been working hard on this as well as setting up our new facility in Los Angeles. Our mastering and cutting room is ready and we are in the process of upgrading our record press. Check back here for more updates soon.

We let our good friend Thomas Meyer use our space to direct a music video for the band Clandestine. Everyone really liked the old hangar look. If anyone out there is interested in renting the space, contact us.

We took possession of our brand new Mc Kenna boiler with Dick Mc Kenna himself assisting the delivery. This 10 HP low nox scotch marine fire tube boiler will create enough steam to power our 12" SMT machine and a 7" machine while keeping us under the emission standards of the city of LA. We may even have extra steam for some serious cleaning.

We've been busy building building all sorts of panels and traps to dial the sound of our mastering room. Our friend Dave DeCristo helped us design and build a custom tailored system of accoustic dampening panels, diffusers, and clouds to make our PMC speakers really shine. You have to hear it!

We finally acquired all the components necessary for our Fairchild 670 compressor. A few nights of soldering, wiring are needed, and then we need to find a proper chassis.
