Music + Arts Recording Studio
Music + Arts recording studio is housed within a 1900’s era limestone building (formerly housing Sounds Unreel Studios) in the heart of historic mid-town Memphis. The facility was designed by David Cherry with consultation from George Augspurger in 2007 and is built around an API Vision 5.1 Analog mixing console. The 48 channel all discrete desk features up to 108 inputs at mix and producers may choose between digital or analog recording.
The control room features a 5.1 PMC monitoring system and an 8 foot Stewart Filmscreen and Panasonic HD projector for film mixing. Additional monitors include Tannoy ML 10s with Mastering Lab crossovers, and Yamaha NS 10s. The tracking floor is designed to facilitate live sessions with excellent lines of sight, a robust all discrete 8-channel headphone cue, three isolation rooms and portable LCD monitors for film scoring. The studio has a variety of new and vintage gear including amplifiers, Hammond organs and a grand piano. (more on the gear page)
