STUDIOS

Beacon Hill Recording Studios features a relaxing and hip ambience and consists of three studios. It is perhaps the most versatile audio production facility in the Southwest. We are able to interconnect any of our control rooms with any live room and/or booth in the facility. Furthermore, our comprehensive networking capabilities allow remote connection with other facilities around the world. This means any of our rooms can be interconnected with other studios with networking capabilities. Additionally, HD video can be routed to any room, which allows for video conferencing with external sources, or within the facilities.

STUDIO A

Studio A features a spacious control room and combines the best of both the analogue and digital worlds. The control room is equipped with highly desirable outboard gear and tons of plug-ins and soft synths from which you may choose. As it is designed for stereo, multi-channel mixing (surround) and recording, your experience in Studio A will set it apart from others. The live room is a midsize room ideal for drums and ensembles. It also has two adjoining isolation booths, one of which is large enough to record a grand piano.

STUDIO B

Studios B has everything you need to record (voiceovers, overdubs and individual instruments), edit and mix in-the-box. The studio has been acoustically designed to provide professional sounding spaces.

STUDIO C

Studios C is perfect for the producer or engineer who likes to work in a more private environment. Its acoustic design provides a professional producing and mixing space.
