The Recording Lab is a state of the art, professional recording facility with the capability of recording, mixing, mastering and final production for all types of projects at any stage of their development.

Whatever your project is:  from voice-overs to individual artist to full band, we take the recording of your project as seriously as you do!  We are here to help you achieve your goals, serving you as you take your musical vision from concept to completion.

The Recording Lab features your choice of several studio-ready high-end drum kits, fully prepped, miked and professionally tuned to your project requirements.

The Recording Lab has many different kits, snares and cymbals available to choose from.  Drums have always been what makes or breaks a great recording.  At the Recording Lab drums are our specialty.

Typically, a band or artist brings their own drums to the recording session and substantial time can be spent preparing the kit for recording.  Microphones pick up every sound, magnifying flutters, buzzing, rattles, inconsistent or incorrect tuning, as well as squeaking of foot pedals.  While the recording technician labors to track down the offending noise and then spends the time to remedy various problems such as tuning, dampening and in some cases replacing drum heads, your entire band can be kept waiting for hours with the $ meter running.

The Recording Lab eliminates the frustration of this scenario by providing you with a completely "Studio Ready" drum kit fully tuned and miked with sound levels already dialed in.  This saves you time and money, and eliminates the frustration of waiting for the drummer while the engineer gets the drums just right.

Of course we do offer the option for you or your drummer to bring your own drum kit which we will be most happy to prepare for recording, at our regular studio rates.
