what we can do

For You

01.

Tracking

Set in a residential neighborhood, our facilities are both homey and spacious. Our live room has been finely tuned to offer excellent acoustics for drums, guitars and other acoustic instruments.

02.

Editing

We take pride in our work and want you to sound as best as you can! Offering editing services, we're able to tighten up your performances without making you sound like a robot (well... unless you want to).

03.

Mixing

This is where the magic happens! We'll take your raw tracks, smash 'em together and make 'em sound good (trust me, it's a little more complicated than that!). Reamping services available!

04.

Mastering

This is where we take a good mix and make it even better. We'll get your single or album ready for distribution, make sure it meets loudness standards and sweeten the sound so fans will want to crank it to 11!
