We are a PC based recording facility running Avid Pro Tools 10 on an Intel i7 with 16Gigs of Ram, lots of Hard drive space (on multiple drives, including an SSD audio data drive), and a 28" display. We use a Focusrite Pro 40 24 paired with an Alesis ADAT converter allowing for 18 channels of simultaneous recording and 96 tracks of mixing.

Our spacious main room has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors (with rugs), one stonework wall, and is oddly shaped, all leading to one of those happy accidents - a really good sounding recording space! And it's a very comfortable environment. Give us a call and we'll set up a time for you to come in and check it all out.

Worth Mentioning:
-We can set up a fairly elaborate headphone monitoring system when necessary - we have an assortment of quality headphones and several stand-alone headphone amps designed just for such occasions.
-We also have a number of Gobo's (movable sound absorbent room dividers) that allow us to set up the room for a wide variety of recording situations, including vocal recording isolation.

ALSO-We have partnered with Star Studio in Warren, which affords us - if needed - an even greater level of seperation (dedicated drum booth) and sonic options...they have a HUGE live room (50'x40' with 30+ foot ceilings - VERY old school!)
