A fun place to be with lots of vintage gear and rare recording gear, microphones, and instruments. Everything is weird to run either analog or digitally or both. The Control Room looks down on to the live room. Services Editing We can modernize your project with the latest advances in technology. Offering state of the art vocal tuning, musical performance alignment and quantizing, drum sound replacement, forensic audio recovery or simply help you make sense of a session that is poorly organized or has gone haywire. Mixing/Mastering If you have previously recorded material but want to take it to the next level of sonic fidelity we can get it radio ready with mixing and mastering services. We have the latest technologies available for mixing in the box with the industry standard Pro Tools and only the best plugins from UAD, Waves, and others. If you are more comfortable with analog we have many classic and modern pieces to make your mix or master come to life. Recording We work with all genres of rock and jazz bands, string sections, horn sections, choirs, hip hop groups and also do voice overs for book and film. We handle every project no matter what the size or budget with equal care and professionalism. We are well equipped with classic analog and digital gear to handle the needs of your project. We will help you to create and finish your project in the way you envisioned it. Production In modern recording the balance between engineer and record producer have been greatly blurred and become one job. Understanding that, we can create basic to full song arrangements from your ideas or work with a full band to push their musical boundaries and visions to capture the best performances possible. This allows the musician to focus on the music only while the producer worries about everything else. Tape Transfers With our MCI JH24 2″ machine and our ATR 102 ¼ and ½” machine, which are highly maintained we have the ability to transfer old tape recordings at the highest fidelity. If it has become old and sticky and unable to play we can bake it to transfer it with greater ease. We treat your tapes with care and prepare them for their new life in the digital realm. Voice over/Demo reels We provide voice over recording for film and audio books and create voice demo reels for submissions to ADR and voiceover directors. Having a great selection of microphones and mic pres to choose from we can make your voice come alive for any role you are playing.

If you require stems, alts, backups, CD burning, etc. the engineer is still working and you are still being billed. 3. Setup time is included in billing. 4. Day rates are to be paid in advance and the time used all in the same day. Split days are strictly prohibited. Lockout dates must be planned in advance. 5.
