THE ROOM IS THE MOTHER
TO THE MOMENT

United Recording’s famous Studio A has produced some of history’s most notable and beloved recordings. From Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Ray Charles to Eric Clapton, Josh Groban and Dave Matthews, this studio has been home to many a legend.

Control Room

At the heart of Studio A’s spacious control room stands a custom 72 input Focusrite Console. This console has been customized to further enhance its sound and capabilities and is augmented by a 10 input Neve BCM 10 with original 1073 mic-pre EQ’s. Studio A comes complete with access to original echo chambers.

Live Room

With its 23 ft. high ceilings, the beautiful and meticulously designed live room is capable of holding a 50 piece orchestra and features a large iso and separate vocal booth making it versatile enough for any type of recording session. Warm, open and incredibly sonically flattering, Studio A’s live room is so flexible it both perfectly captures the most delicately played acoustic instruments and naturally enhances the most grandiose symphonic orchestra. Studio A comes with an exceptional Steinway Model D 9’ concert grand piano. The room also comes with a Hammond B3 organ with Leslie cabinet upon availability.
