An OMNIA:ARTS MX72-NV 9 channel Neve inspired summing mixer just left the shop several weeks ago and is currently in a producers home where it is the centerpiece for their studio and helping them to make great mixes with some vintage and modern flavors, adding a depth, tone, and dimension that plug ins struggle to achieve.
Formerly omnia:audio (long sad story) omnia:arts also builds several pieces that are modern recreations of classic gear. The H69 dual channel EQ is available with several different gain stages using the incredible filters of the legendary Helios consoles but offering tube, DOA, and Neve flavored gain stages that can add an extra dimension and gives the engineer/producer a nice palate from which to work from.
From mic modifications including new capsules, transformers, and capacitor upgrades to adding a bright switch or a third high-gain channel to a guitar amp, omnia:arts has modified and repaired countless pieces of equipment.
Recent modifications include the Apex 460 mod, the Behringer B-2 upgrade mod, adding a 24bit /192k DAC to a custom built reference monitor amp, to a compression circuit inside a two channel guitar amp.

From World and Romani music to industrial black metal to classical Dylan Emelianoff has been composing, performing, and recording music for over two decades. An experienced sound-man Dylan began repairing recording equipment many years ago while interning at BlackDog Studios in NY. Not too long after becoming second engineer the facility shutdown but with the guidance of chief engineer Craig Holcomb (who moved to take over Cap Records located in the Philippines) Dylan moved to Burlington Vermont and opened Stranger Music Studios.
A successful venture Dylan recorded bands and did sound at various local venues as well as performing and touring with his own world punk band sai u drom.
Throughout Dylan did modifications and repairs and began building clones to outfit his studio as well as colleagues. After several years Dylan began designing his own equipment, and started omnia:audio using the tried and true circuits already established while adding his own touch to enhance certain features.
Eventually the name was changed to omnia:arts which made more sense as the company has branched out into several fields within the art/music community.
