We have a small project-based recording studio and independent record label here in the Portland area. The studio is best suited for small indie projects or singer-songwriters wanting to track/refine a demo or a single. For larger projects, we have a list of recommended studios and engineers. It’s been used to track, mix, and master a 10-song LP by Portland’s post rock project, ghostmarket, various overdubs for collaborative recordings, as well as some work composing and recording part of a soundtrack for the upcoming found footage film, What Happened to Suzie?

We have the capability to record 18 tracks simultaneously, and an assortment of 11 outboard mic preamps and five outboard compressors. We also have access to a large room with very high ceilings, wood floors and tongue-and-groove ceilings for tracking drums (limited availability), or a natural reverb chamber. We use Logic Pro for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering.
