Our Engineers make the difference!

DCIM100GOPROG0073409.

Mike B and Paul together represent over 40 years of recording experience. Trained in the real world (Mike has been the house recording engineer at 1st Av Mainroom in Mpls for over 5 years) and formal classrooms (Paul is a student of Hennepin Techs Recording and Pro Audio courses) there is no task they can’t complete or to far “out there”. We have just about seen it all, from large bands with horns and backup singers to sole artists with a simple concept.

Both experienced musicians, they understand where you are at and where you want to go.

Large spacious and acoustically treated, comfortable main Live Room with adjustable lighting provides a great environment

Our new 50″ Ultra HD Monitor to view the whole project

Our acoustically treated mixing and operations room is simply awesome with a 50 Ultra HD Monitor and networked computers.

Featuring two drum rooms!drum-room-img_4465

Two separate Drum Rooms, with lots of room to breathe and great isolation means you can track multiple parts at once, or even a whole large band in one take (old school), saving you the exhaustion of massive over dubbing as well as time and, of course, money!  It also opens up (as shown) to be included as part of the Live Room when necessary.  In addition we have another drum room for tracking when you want that HUGE sound.

The Auxiliary Space in the Live Room, comes in handy when larger groups are present. It also has easy visual access to the entire studio, including the Control Room (left) and Drum Room (far right)

Adjustable lighting and a comfortable Green Room finish out the great feel and make this a place you can enjoy just being in and inspirational as opposed to clinical.
