After building two studios in L.A. and three in N.Y. everything I've learned over the years has gone into the design and construction of this facility. The entire building is fastened together with stainless steel exterior deck screws, not nails that can become loose from vibration and cause rattles and resonance. All interior walls are 7/8 inch thick solid wood over 16" centered frames. The Control Room was built with differant angles, shapes, and ceiling heights to eliminate any possibility of standing sound waves and resonance. A double wall with double solid doors was constructed between the Control Room and Live Room to insure sound proof integrity. The walls in the Live Room were also offset 3-4 degrees with 15 foot ceilings to accomplish the same result. The solid wood construction and carefully thought out acoustic treatment has resulted in a warm natural sound quality and a super accurate Control Room. In the photos below you can see some of our superb collection of Amps and Speaker Cabs. Also take note of the Alcove we built and specifically treated with Auralex to provide recording options and color. Every step of the recording process is backed by first class gear. Our recording system is ProTools HD Native with 2 HD/IO analog and 2 HD/IO digital interfaces for a total of 64 simultaneous inputs and outputs. Our computer is a custom built powerhouse with a Universal Audio world renowned UAD-2 plug-in quad effects processor card installed and a additional quad processor satelight unit installed giving this system the processing power of a room full of the finest audio processing gear in the world . This computer was built for us by Sweetwater Sound with a 6 core i 7 processor and easily handles large track counts, processing, and automation. Our new C-24 console has a pristine analog front end and was specifically designed to control ProTools via ethernet. The 16 built in Mic Preamps are super quality and super clean. Control of ProTools, EQ's, Dyn., and Processor Plug-ins, Transport, Tracks, and so much more is easily done on the C-24 Console instead of the time consuming mouse and computer screen. The huge live room pictured below (left) was built with 15 foot ceilings and the acoustics perfectly tuned to deliver a warm natural sound with reflected sound problems completely eliminated without sounding overly steril like smaller studios exhibit. The Control Room is Cutting Edge and extremely accurate. We have some of the best sounding analog gear and microphones in the world recorded into Pro Tools 11, awsome processing power, then back out to 32 channels of Dangerous Music analog gear for mixing and mastering in the analog realm with huge dynamic range and super fine audio quality. You can listen to the sound and production quality of this Studio at reverbnation.com/circleearth. Circle Earth's album "Breaking Chains" was recorded, mixed, and mastered here at PSE Studios and was Produced by the owner Pete Sillaro. You can also listen to this album on Circle Earth's facebook page and buy it at cdbaby.com/cd/circleearth. This was the very first project recorded here and was also instrumental to becoming familiar with the then brand new studio and fine tune it. We are now in full swing and turning out incredible work that surpasses the great sound of our first project . We are quickly building a long list of musicians that all became repeat customers . With new microphones and hardware added to our bag of tricks on a steady basis, we will always have the finest gear I can buy. The latest album released on PSE Records is "Sweet Marie" a Blues/Rock Album featuring 2 young sister song writer, guitar, vocalists backed by myself on Bass, Butch Cavouto on Drums, and John Zov on Guitar and Keys. This awesome album was produced and recorded at PSE Recording Studios and can be listened to and purchased on cdbaby, iTunes, Amazon, and all the digital sites.
