A live mid sized isolated recording area (16x18x12), an absorptive mid sized isolated area (16x13x12), a small isolated room (10x12x12), an isolated vocal booth (8x12x12), and a spacious control room (23x16x12) that can seat 9. We like to record drums in the larger live room, using as much ambiance as possible, while isolating any amps vocals or horn sections in the other rooms while tracking. The studio is wired so that musicians can physically be in the same room with the drums while tracking with their amps isolated, or even 1 or 2 musicians playing in the control room, with their amps isolated in one of the other 3 rooms.
