What would be a good studio to record at?

Postby scoopsdardaris on Thu Nov 16, 2017 2:17 pm

I have a record coming up in the late spring early summer next year where the band is looking to book a studio for around 10 days. In an ideal situation we could stay on sight, be able to go outside and be in the woods/nature, and basically be alone without distraction (the band will provide enough distraction). I am located in Philadelphia and the band is from Albany NY, and we are willing to travel a reasonable distance.

As far as specs go on a studio, all I would really NEED is a good live room and accurate monitoring. Of course other rooms/amps/drums/gear would be a huge plus, and preferred. One studio I have in mind that really fits all the criteria is Dreamland in Woodstock (http://www.dreamlandrecording.com/), but I want to give them and myself a few options.

Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks,

Scoops

Le Studio Quebec Canada...Oh, it's closed.

It may take awhile for the Go Fund Me to rebuild Le Studio pans out...

As great as EA is..

Probably one of the more famous studios to fit that bill would be Pachyderm though Minnesota isn't terribly close.

I have 2 friends who seem to regularly record bands at Dreamland and both like it. I know a couple bands who have recorded there as well and they have been happy.

I would check to see if they have an in house tech or not. I have one friend who scrapped a session there due to technical issues. At least they let him know in advance so he could book somewhere else.

Ah hell while I'm at it I might as well suggest this place 20 minutes from me: Fidelitorium. Fairly remote place (but with cities & an airport 20 minutes away) owned by Mitch Easter, and hosts all kinds of bands and engineers. FM greg told me he recorded there once and liked the place.

Echo Lab, just outside of Denton TX.

http://theecholab.com/

You can sit on the porch and shoot a pellet gun into the woods in between takes. If Barnhart is recording you, try not to fart in the control room. And remember...feature it, or fuck it.

A friend of a friend runs Subcat in Syracuse. Lots of nice toys, but the woods/nature thing will be a bit further afield.

I have a list in my head of records that sound amazing that were recorded at The Echo Lab. Everyone I know that has recorded their has said "Best Case Scenario". Also has that second part you mentioned about rooms/gear in spades.

If it is workable, this is the best option.

For the woods / nature angle Dave Fridmann's studio (Tarbox Road) mabye can't be beat. It's a bit of a trek from you all, in far western NY, but it's driveable.

FM MTAR's Russian Recording, outside Bloomingtron Indiana.

EDIT: nevermind, I forgot he moved it to downtown Bloomingtron, it used to be out in the woods. But there are state forests and shit within a few miles, it's a small town.

Jon Anderson is a lover of nature, and he wanted to record the Tales From Topographic Oceans album outdoors in a woodland area north of London. He envisioned a makeshift studio in a tent, capturing the sounds of the woods on the recording. His bandmates nixed the idea, so Anderson showed up at the sessions with bales of hay, trees, and cardboard cutouts of animals which he placed around the studio.
