Project Studio Available

Ideal for singer-songwriters or for soloists, this intimate studio is equipped with everything needed to produce professionally-recorded tracks. I can work with you as engineer and/or producer.

Microphones

Three microphones serve most of the needs for the studio:

Audio-Technica AT4050/CM condenser microphone The AT4050 Large-diaphragm Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone is used mainly for vocals and acoustic guitars, and offers airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities.
Rode NT1 condenser microphone, shown with SE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO The RØDE NT1 large-diaphragm condenser microphone (shown here with the SE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO to eliminate acoustic reflections) is also used for vocals, acoustic guitars, and other instruments where detail and warm bass reproduction are important.
Shure Beta58A microphone The Shure Beta58A microphone is a supercardioid dynamic vocal microphone with excellent rejection of off–axis sound. In the studio it used to isolate the vocal when the performer is playing an instrument at the same time, as well as for backing vocals.
