The studio features top-of-the-line recording equipment, a huge assortment of instruments, and a vocal isolation booth. The studio boasts a selection of vintage instruments and gear, including a Hammond Organ with Leslie Speaker, a 1920s piano, 1960s guitars and amps, and authentic recreations of classic hardware compressors.

SERVICES

Robert can accommodate individuals and bands. Vocalists, singers, rappers, and any instrumentalists are welcome. Robert can run and engineer your session, or allow you to run it yourself. 

My rates are some of the lowest I've seen for my level of expertise and breadth of ability. If you're concerned about budget, let's have a conversation, because usually I can work something out that satisfies everyone.
