Step Inside...

Our Live Room

Ready to record?  Our live room is the perfect place for you to lay down anything from smooth vocals to punchy drums or even the whole band at once.  This space is professionally soundproof with a raised floor to keep out any rumbling noise from the ground.  Even our air conditioners are silent.  That leaves nothing to be heard but your creativity and talent.

Studio  A 

Welcome to our master tracking and mixing room, complete with Pro Tools 12 and a plethora of audio gear options ready to capture your sound with supreme precision and lush fidelity.  Already have your takes and need a space to mix?  Look no further.  If you're already familiar with the software, our head engineer Chris Krotky can show you the ropes of the outboard gear or provide his own master's touch on your tracks. 

 Studio  B

Though humble in comparison to its big brother, our lovely Studio B welcomes you to work on whatever your heart desires in its cozy atmosphere.  Be it music, voice-overs, or multi-media tracks, you'll find this little room is a great space to mix, produce, or even compose in, equipped with A/B monitoring speakers and a large monitor screen to conveniently expand one's laptop to a large dual display.

"If you're a Bay Area singer-songwriter seeking a producer to partner with to help bring your ideas to life and make them sound fantastic, there's nobody I'd recommend more than Christopher Krotky. I've met very few producers who possess Christopher's level of musicality, engineering chops, creativity, and professionalism. He's great."
