This is the control room, which has a window facing the south. It is spacious and has french doors facing east, leading onto a patio -- very nice in the summertime for relaxing between takes. The control room has a 12 foot high ceiling, a hardwood floor in the console area and carpeting around the perimeter. It also has central heating, different shades of lighting and a five-speed ceiling fan to keep things cool during long sessions.
This is the studio hallway which leads from the control room. There are 3 doors on the left that lead to 3 live rooms. The rooms have thick glass windows so that the musicians can see each other at all times while they are recording. Having line-of-sight contact between musicians makes is possible for them to cue each other, play and end together, and this keeps the sessions flowing more smoothly, song after song.
