I like to work out of Earth Analog in Tolono IL. Matt has a great sounding room, Studer and ATR tape machines, vintage Sphere console as well as a great mic, preamp, and compressor selection. I also work out of my small studio in the back of my shop. Often times i will track bands on tape at Earth Analog and finish up the project on pro tools. James Scott at Populist Recording is my go-to guy for mastering.
We offer mobile recording services that consist of a Midas M32 console and a Mac Pro (Nehalem build) full of SSD's. We can do your live sound and get a multi-track recording simultaneously.
