The more balanced you’re able to keep outside-of-the-studio life, the better you can focus on your music.  You’ll have access to a personal office space.  Bring a laptop, connect into the studio’s client-only, private WiFi network, respond to emails or texts, charge your phone, grab some coffee or tea – t’s your on-location business center while at the studio.


RECORDING

Machine Room Studio offers a comfortable and acoustically balanced space that fosters creativity.

Pro-level instruments and amps are here for you to use to find inspiration.  Along with an extensive mic locker and outboard gear, I can definitely help you create something cool.  There are also some of the most advanced digital tools to capture the best of your performances. I offer you the experience and patience to capture it just as you want it to sound.

“VIRTUAL” RECORDING

Sometimes it’s just not possible to get to the studio.  But these days, it’s not mandatory for a recording project. I can compose & produce tracks for your project, whether you need a grooving bass line, a piano fill – or even an entire backing band.
