Had a wonderful experience recording my band's demo here. We actually just booked more time to break ground on our full length album next month! Anyhow...
Extremely relaxed work environment - Elliot knows how to time manage and get good takes out of us. We never felt like we were racing the clock. Even on the small budget we had for our demo
Colorful and exciting decoration - Who cares right? Actually, It was so refreshing to sit in a colorful and stimulating room while recording. It's hard to become inspired when you feel like you're sitting in a dentist's office. Almost gives you the sense that you are just at home relaxing and playing your music.
Great communication - Elliot took extra care with us to make sure that ideas were clearly conveyed. I can speak for my whole band when I say that EVERY sound on that demo came out EXACTLY how I heard it in my head.
Gear - Now, I don't know my butt-hole from my elbow when it comes to recording gear, but he got the sounds we were after, so I guess it's good... But the instruments they have available in the studio are incredible. It's like a toy store for musicians! We brought all our own stuff, but switched out amps or cymbals or drums here and there to make it exactly how we wanted it.
We couldn't believe the level of quality on our little demo, and for the price! I, and my band highly recommend this studio to anyone who is looking to record and mix!
