Studio A

Considered one of the finest recording/mixing rooms on the east coast, Studio A is based around a custom AMEK Media 51RN console – designed by world renown console designer Rupert Neve. Combining the best of both analog and digital technology the room is a large, ambient tracking and mixing room with two isolation booths and a vocal booth. The live room is incredibly spacious and keeps the character of the 19th century barn with beautiful original wood beams and a ceiling height of 20 feet at its highest point. The studio includes a producers lounge next to the control room as well as a large private lounge with private deck, cable TV, DVD/Blue Ray player, and kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and coffee.
