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, 48 microphone inputs with 4 separate cue mixes.

The control room is stocked with high-end microphones from Royer, Neumann, AKG, Soundelux, Beyerdynamic, Electrovoice and Sennheiser, each powered by superb preamps from Neve, SSL, Massenburg, Universal Audio, Focusrite, Chandler, Avalon and Vintech. Want outboard processors? Studio A packs Pultec-style tube EQ’s and hardware compressors from DBX, Purple Audio, A-Designs and Warm Audio.

Remote production through either Source-Connect or Phone Patch is also available at Studio A. The studio is perfect for small bands, podcast recordings, voice-overs, overdubs and, of course, mixing music.
