STUDIO A

Studio A is a large, open studio with four distinct, sound-isolated tracking spaces: live room, iso booth, utility room, and foyer. These different rooms offer a variety of acoustic environments; from the live, open sound of the main room to the tight, crisp sound of the softwood-lined iso booth - or even the completely flat and clean sound of the foyer for tight voice overdubbing. The live room is the "control room," housing the 16-channel ADM console and extensive collection of analog equipment. This studio will comfortably handle almost any project, large or small.

STUDIO B Production Suite

Studio B is a versatile editing and post-production suite, sharing microphones, instruments, and selcted outboard equipment with Studio A. The adjoining lounge can serve as extra space for tracking vocals or overdubs. For music creation not requiring a lot of space, this room is ideal. Mic locker and coffee included. (Shown: Studio A under construction. Photos coming soon!)
