The Best in the Northwest
We like to think we are one of the best recording and mixing studios in Seattle but we all know that rooms and gear are just a small part of a recording studio, our people make it what it is and we have some mighty fine folks here to help you. No matter where you are on your musical journey, you are always welcome here with respect and appreciation.
Established in 1995, we have been home to a community of producers, engineers and musicians that have defined the Seattle sound for many years. In 2014, we received a multi-Platinum record for our work on Macklemore’s Grammy winning album, The Heist. In 2018, we received another Platinum award for our contribution to Vance Joy’s album, Dream Your Life Away.

You’re in good experienced hands here.
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
Music is proof that someone out there has felt the exact same way you do.
Our mixing console is a SSL 4056 G+ housed in a acoustically designed control room.
Mixing is one of the most important things you’ll do in the studio.
With all the vintage hardware and modern software your mixes are certain to stand out from the crowd.
Take your mix to heights you never thought possible with our professional mastering services.
Mastering is like dessert, when its really good its REALLY GOOD!
Full Music Production
We offer full production here from pre-production, tracking to mixing. Production is never a one size fits all because every artist is different and every song has diverse needs. The benefit of having a experienced producer is where the value is, many say it has been invaluable.
Building on the strengths of the artist and knowing when to stay out of the way is a true art form, one that only comes with experience. Other times my job as a producer is just to be a good documentarian of the project and capture the artist in a moment that represents them, communication prior to the record starting is the best way to achieve the level of production that each artist is looking for.
