“Their jaws DROPPED when my daughter sat down and started to play...” an actual quote from one of our parents


Would you like to record a song or poem you've written?  Do you need an audition recording for college entrance?  What about an audiobook, or a spoken word project?  Are you in a band, and you need a quality demo recording to get work?  Are you a karaoke singer, and your friends want a recording of you?  We can help.  

Our Features
  • Quiet, professional atmosphere.
  • Quality digital recording using Tascam professional hardware, Apple Logic, and Acoustica Mixcraft software.
  • We have a Sonor drum set, Yamaha, Roland, and Korg synthesizers, as well as many software based synths.
  • We have two acoustic pianos.  We have a Story and Clark studio upright, and a Wurlitzer 6 foot grand.  Mr. Norton is a piano tuner and technician, and our pianos are always in tune and regulated, and ready to play.  There is no extra charge to use our pianos, nor is there a tuning fee.
​We can produce instrumental tracks for you, or you can bring your own.
  • We can record up to 16 channels at once.  We can get your whole band playing together, and record everyone in one pass if you're more comfortable that way.
  •  
  • We provide an experienced recording engineer with every project.
  •  
  • We can mix and master your finished product here in house, and give you masters for duplication on your own, or we can arrange duplication and production of final product for you.  If you only need a few pieces, we can also do a small run of 25 pieces of finished product for you here in house.
  • We can arrange to have your finished product available for sale on iTunes and other digital download sites.

We record all music genres, but we are partial to Christian music of any genre, as well as country, blues, r&b, and pop/rock.  

We are well-equipped to record acoustic instruments and vocals, with a nice quiet tracking room, which also houses our grand piano.

We prefer not to do hard rock, metal, punk, or rap, as there are other studios that are better set up for those genres.  We are also well equipped to do spoken word recording.
