The Control Room

Studio 132 was designed by architects from all over the bay area and tuned by Bob Hodas. It consists of a control room (17X 12), a 10 X 9 drum room, a 5 X 4 vocal booth, and even a closet where we often mic an amp. All rooms feature beautiful hardwood floors with or without area rugs, and each room is available for recording.

Just a quick note about software: there are so many plug-ins that we use, it would take forever to list them here. If you're in the biz, you also know that Pro Tools 11 is now out, and we’ve managed to find a way to have Pro Tools 11, Pro tools 10, and Pro Tools 9 systems up and running. This endures backward compatibility from the past 15 years or so as well as having the “latest and greatest” system available!
