studio

I’m fortunate to have a professional-level personal studio at my house in Upstate, NY. Beautifully designed and built by renowned builder Chris Harmaty in 2012, the studio features well tuned and isolated rooms throughout, all wired with Mogami cabling.

The Neve-centered control room is tightly focused, allowing for effortless dialing of production and mixing.

The live room has a nice medium ambience and houses a lovely Schimmel grand piano and Fender Rhodes.

The drum booth is again tightly focused, constructed with irregularly angled walls to avoid unwanted room resonances.

Two additional amp closets.

One extra live room configured as an echo chamber.

Large windows with gorgeous views of the Catskills!

Dedicated outdoor terrace for relaxing between takes.
