The room is fully functional, acoustically well treated, has angled walls, a well designed patch bay and some fun toys. We are also open to accommodating and fully integrating more gear into the bay and the room. There are currently 16 free male and female xlr fan out snakes and 32 channels of TRS connectors coming off the bay. We also have tie lines to the room next door which can be used as a separate tracking room. The bay is hand wired and there is free space on it.

Other good things:
-Excellent environmental air control; Our own dedicated A/C and heating system. Isolated ducting and fresh air introduction.
-Isolated and clean, 100 amp, 120V dedicated electrical circuit for all audio equipment
-Internet and Ethernet throughout the floor
-A kitchenette, lounge, roof deck, two rest rooms.
