The Studio

Affordable Productions
Without Compromises

Our Philosophy

Since the beginning of our very first rehearsal room, our goal has always been to build a safe and affordable place for musicians to make music on the Central Coast. We strive to make every project the best that it can be at the best possible price. We keep our rates as affordable as possible because being musicians ourselves, we know what the struggle is like!

Our Studio Setup

The recording studio consists of four isolated rooms all with visual contact which enables us to easily record large bands together live. We have a spacious live room (19x23x12), a medium-sized isolation room (5x9x12), a small isolation room (5.5x4.5x10), and a medium-sized tracking control room (9x17x10).

The studio is also equipped with a large selection of vintage and modern microphones, preamps, instruments, and amplifiers.

Main Room

Main Room

We have a spacious live room at 19x23x12 which has a fantastic natural reverb. Here we like to track drums with as much natural ambience as possible. During full band live tracking, guitar and bass players can also be in this room with their amps being recorded in our isolation rooms. This makes microphone bleed a non-issue.

The Control Room

The Control Room

Our tracking control room is medium sized at 9x17x10. Here we can control all of our microphone preamps and outboard gear. The control room can also be used as an isolation room or to house guitar/bass players while recording one or multiple guitar amps in the live room or isolation booths. It is also possible to control the computer in the control room from the live room.

Vocal Booth (Green Room)

Vocal Booth
(Green Room)

Our vocal booth is medium sized at 5x9x12. This room is very dead acoustically and great for vocal, acoustic, or voice over recording where natural ambience is not wanted.

Isolation Booth (Red Room)

Isolation Booth
(Red Room)

Our small isolation booth is 5.5x4.5x10. It is great for vocalists or horn players as well as guitar amps because of its easy access.

Vintage Synthesizer & Drum Machine Production Room

Vintage Synthesizer & Drum Machine Production Room

Also wired into the control room is our vintage synth and drum machine room (12x23x12), which can be used as a production room or additional isolation room for the recording studio. We have a large collection of vintage synthesizers and drum machines (see equipment list) that are available in our productions.

Engineer Suites

Engineer Suites

In addition to our 4 dedicated recording rooms, we have 2 monthly rental engineer suites (9.5x19x10) which double as extra isolation rooms as they are wired into the tracking control room.
