How to prepare for your session

Bringing your tracks on a USB drive and running the session from it could result in playback errors. We have a MacBook Pro 8,2 and 4,1 each with two aftermarket SSDs installed, one for the OS and the other for the media. If you do not plan on bringing your own laptop and audio interface please try to get your tracks to us ahead of time by mailing a USB drive, CD, DVD-ROM or through a large file transfer service. This way we can copy your session to our SSD beforehand which could take a while but will provide the maximum track playback capability without errors. Getting your tracks to us ahead of time will leave more session time for tracking. When the session is over we can copy the new Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic, or Cubase session and the audio files to a USB drive which you can then take back to your own computer for mixing. Or we can send you the physical media or make it available for download

Studio Inventory

This is the studio inventory as of today, September 22, 2021. Please note that it is different than the rental inventory. Not everything available in the rental inventory is available in the studio, but it can be made available with a special request if we are given a few days notice.

Remote Synthesizer Recording & Sound Replacement

We can replace your software generated synth bass, lead, and pad tracks with sounds from a real vintage synthesizer remotely. For many producers, samples, emulators, VST/AU plugins, and pre-recorded loops aren't good enough. When you absolutely need a particular synth sound for a new or unfinished project, we can help. Send us your MIDI files, we record the synth tracks at your direction and send the recorded tracks back to you. Works great for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar, Ableton Live, GarageBand, Digital Performer, or any other DAW.

This is also ideal if you are revisiting a past project and no longer have access to the original synth. Simply send us your SysEx patch banks or tape backup (or even just factory patch name/number) along with your MIDI files. We record the synth tracks using the original hardware and patches, and send the recorded stems files back to you as .wav, .aiff at 44kHz 16 bit up to 96kHz 32 bit. You can then take these files and drop them into your mix.
