Studio “A”

About Studio "A"




Off site from the Thousand Oaks business office, Studio “A” is located in nearby Newbury Park and offers an acoustically designed tracking room with 48 microphone inputs and 4 separate cue mixes. The studio is often selected by directors and producers needing Voicever recordings or Automated Dialog Replacement (ADR) for feature films and television programs, especially when the actors live nearby and don’t want to travel to studios in Burbank or Hollywood.

Some of the better known actors and personalities who have recorded in Studio “A” include Jamie Foxx, Tom Selleck, Rainn Wilson, Ving Rhames, Neal McDonough, Bruce Boxleitner, Donnie Most, Bob Eubanks, Rob Riggle and Scott Patterson.

The control room is stocked with high-end microphones from Neumann, Royer, AKG, Mojave Audio, Beyerdynamic, Electrovoice and Sennheiser, each powered by any number of superb preamps from Neve, SSL, Massenburg, Universal Audio, Focusrite,  Avalon and Vintech.  Studio “A” furthermore has an arsenal of outboard hardware processors from Solid State Logic, Tegeler Audio, Smart Research, DBX, Purple Audio, Dangerous Music and Warm Audio.

Remote production is easily accomplished through either Source-Connect or a Phone Patch, and can be complemented with Zoom conferencing to provide directors with both audio and video during the recording process. The studio is perfect for small bands, podcast recordings, voice-overs, ADR, overdubs and, of course, mixing music.
