Listen and Compare

This section allows you to explore the differences between our two main tracking rooms, Studio A and B.

Studio A or "The Dead Room", is a fully acoustically treated room ideal for tracking vocals, acoustic instruments, amps and drums. We use this room when a tight and dry sound is desired and when sound isolation is key.

Studio B or "The Live Room", is an excitable room with a big sound ideal for tracking drums, acoustic instruments, amps and vocals. We use this room when a large and natural sound is desired.
