Technical Stuff

Feel Free to Geek Out on all of this

If you are here, you already know this is going to get technical, so we promise not to disappoint you. Enjoy!

We have an entirely double-walled recording room, with air gap plus acoustic insulation between; average wall at any point is 12″ thick. Recording booth is room-within-a-room, acoustically isolated, floated, and suspended. Bass traps throughout, including the main control room/listening room. Walls and ceiling enhanced with custom panels of Owens Corning 703 acoustic insulation for maximum high frequency absorption.

Top of the line studio recording equipment, including AKG 414 vintage studio condenser mics, as well as Neumann and Sennheiser shotgun mics. If you prefer to wear headphones, we have the best. But don’t worry, the dogs have their own.

Listen to your playback over massive vintage Westlake TM1 monitors, for the clearest, cleanest sound in existence. For the übergeeks who want to know, these are from Westlake’s Reference Series, their highest end, and contain TAD 4001 Mid frequency horns, TAD 1601B woofers, and JBL2405 tweeters. They weigh 300 pounds.  Each. And run a cool $20,000, the pair.

More stuff to geek out about:
Summit Tube Leveling Amp – TLA 100A
Sontec DRC 202 Limiter
Neotek mic pre-amps
MOTU 2408 interface
AKG BX20 reverb
Furman power conditioners

We also have a boatload of vintage recording equipment you can gawk at (professional tape decks, etc) – nobody uses it anymore because everything is digital, but it’s fun to have around as reminders of where we got our start. Eight track recording, anyone? Who remembers splicing with a razor and little bits of tape?
