Studio A Description

 

 

 

Studio A is our main studio. The studio features a large live room with 13 foot angled ceilings and non-parallel walls, a dedicated Iso Room, a large control room with slotted diffusers, and suspended bass trapping in the rear of the room.  Studio A was also redesigned by world famous acoustician Carl Tatz featuring his Phantom Focus Speaker System. All rooms are floated 2 feet off street level for excellent bass response and isolation from outside noise sources.  There are also hardwood floors through-out the studio.  All electrical is referenced to deep earth ground (10 foot copper ground rods) and passed through a 50-pound Equitech transformer based power conditioner for tight bass response and super low noise floor.  All live room cabling is Gepco with 24 mic lines between the live room and control room.   All of the control room cabling is Swiss made Gotham Audio cable.  A rarity in any studio, the control room has windows to let in ample natural light (fully soundproofed).

Studio B Description

 

 

 

Studio B is a built-from-the-ground-up solution to meet today’s independent artists needs. Studio B features a very large vocal booth with hardwood floors, a large glass block window, and ample bass trapping for tight and articulate sound.  Several artists can record simultaneously in this vocal booth.  The control room was designed and built from the ground up for a focused sound over the entire sound spectrum.  Suspended full audio band traps are implemented in a “cloud” configuration suspended over the mixing console for excellent mix translation.  A custom-built rear wall bass trap tightens the low end so there are never any “muddy” sounding mixes.  A large window also lets in ample natural light, along with hardwood floors, making for a unique looking control room.  Isolated circuits keep Studio B’s power clean and separate from the rest of the facility.  Swiss Made Gotham Audio cable ties in 3 mic lines, 4 headphone feeds & MIDI from the vocal booth to the control room.  Double wall construction and acoustically treated ductwork allows for loud tracking sessions without contaminating the vocal mic.
