Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a hit song that's ready to hit the airwaves? Or perhaps you're looking to create voice-over samples for a remote audition? In any case, you should be looking at renting space in a professional recording studio. Trying to record music, voice, and other audio in your home, garage, or other space simply cannot compete with the quality you'll get from recording in a dedicated audio space. Everything from the walls to the recording equipment are optimized for pure sound quality.
Any studio venue for live recording will have a workstation, sound dampening like acoustic panels, microphones, cables, and other equipment. You will easily be able to hear the difference, making a rental well worth the extra time and money. And since Chicago happens to be one of the nation's entertainment capitals, you'll find venues here on par with LA, NYC, and other major hubs.
Follow in the footsteps of major bands like Fall Out Boy and Smashing Pumpkins by mixing and mastering at Gravity Studios. Located in Wicker Park, Gravity offers everything from two vocal iso booths next to each other to a mastering room that doubles as a production suite and recording studio. Gravity Studios has been a part of the Chicago landscape for over a century and is extremely experienced.
Mixing and mastering studios often offer additional services as well. Whether you're in need of sound technicians for a live performance or audio recording for a karaoke party, try working with a music production studio in Chicago.
Do you need a well equipped room for rehearsal performances? Renting a live recording studio by the hour gives you a space that offers ideal performance and audio recording quality. The staff at many recording studios also offer valuable advice and coaching opportunities that will elevate your work beyond the competition.
Live recording studios are also the best place to do audio conversions. If you have records, cassettes, CDs, and other physical media, they effortlessly digitize the music contained within to any one of several convenient digital file types. Even major national organizations like The Library of Congress rely on audio recording studios in Chicago for their sound digitizing needs.

Upscale West Loop Music Studio
Our event at the music studio was absolutely fantastic. Jim (the booking manager) and John (our on-site technician) were both great. They had everything we needed for a small concert event - we came way over-prepared as they had everything ready to just plug right in. Space was clean...

Beautiful Quiet TV Shows | Podcasts | Interviews Studio
were phenomenal and our footage came out amazing! Just a note — if you’re shooting video footage in the black room, there’s a >music studio next door that bleeds sound. It’s not terrible at all, but just a note to consider if you’re booking for that purpose...

South Loop Loft
Cyrus was lovely and super helpful and accommodating. The studio was a large, cool space with lots of character. Extremely high ceilings and a wall of west facing, floor to ceiling windows that have drapes that can turn it into a giant soft box. Pretty quiet, but can hear sirens...
