Please visit our Studio B Photo Tour for a better look
Studio B is the larger of our two rooms. It features a 62 input classic Neve console and a large live room with lots of unique recording possibilities. As we've said before, our focus is on live recording and Studio B was designed from the ground up with that in mind.
We have recorded four-piece alternative bands, a sixty-voice gospel choir, a seventeen-piece big band, a Brazilian sambareggae percussion ensemble and even a marching band playing the Star Spangled Banner. (standing still, of course)
While most of our work is for album release, we have also done a number of film scores, jingles and even video shoots.
Those with access to Microsoft Word 6.0 or higher can download a preformatted, easy to print equipment list for Studio B.

Quite simply, a great space. The main room has a 25 foot ceiling and has been acoustically treated to make it sound more than twice as large (ask us about this trade secret).
The room has a catwalk around three sides about halfway up. The catwalk affords unique possibilities for
room miking of drums, string sections and even guitar amps. It has also been used for camera and light placement during video shoots.
The room acoustics may be varied using motorized panels that have a hard side and a soft side.
- Main Studio: 21' x 47' x 25' Ceiling
- Drum Room: 12' x 10' x 13' Ceiling
- Dead Booth: 8' x 6' x 8' Ceiling
A live, bright room with a hardwood floor and a stone rear wall that is over 100 years old. Perfect as-is for really big drum sounds, or toned down with absorptive goboes for jazz drummers and other instruments.
A dead booth, perfect for percussion, upright bass, vocals and more.
There are convenient "Mouse Holes" that allow wires to be run into the sound lock between the Control Room and the Studio so it can be used to isolate an amplifier or Leslie.
Even if you do most of your work on near-field (small) speakers, you need big speakers you can trust to check the low bass. Our large monitors in both rooms are custom built cabinets with Gauss Coaxial Speakers and Subwoofers. They are loud and accurate and are tuned frequently to keep them that way. We also give you a choice of seven sets of nearfields:
We have several methods for setting up headphone mixes in each room to accommodate different types of sessions and engineers' preferences:
- Stereo Mix to Cue
- Stereo Mix + Aux Sends
- Four Independent Mono or Two Independent Stereo Mixes
- Personal 8 Channel Cue Mixers for each Musician, one station with dedicated reverb unit.
